    Woods was overshadowed a year ago by Phil Dumatrait, another Bakersfield JC lefthander who was a first-round pick of the Red Sox. Woods took a little longer to develop than Dumatrait but made huge strides again this year. He added 3-4 mph to his fastball after adding 5-6 a year ago. He topped out at 92, though his best pitch is still his power breaking ball. With all his improvement, Woods broke Dumatrait's single-season school strikeout record of 121.
