    A redshirt sophomore, Rouse missed the 2000 season when he transferred from San Jose State to Cal State Fullerton. He was a rare college player who wasn't released from his scholarship so he could play immediately at his new school. He shook off the rust last summer in the Cape Cod League and had a strong season. He got off to a slow start as he battled to win the starting shortstop job, but he seized the role with his bat and became the team's top hitter and RBI man. He had a solid year defensively, but his lack of lateral movement probably will push him to second base in pro ball. He projects as a fourth- to eighth-rounder.
