    Josh Garton, an outfielder at Volunteer State, challenged pitchers Trent Rothlin, a righthander committed to Mississippi, and lefty Chad Bell (Tennessee) as the top prospect in the juco ranks. Garton, a Florida International signee, might be better suited to first base or left field in pro ball. He's strong-bodied and athletic, with a fringe-average arm, and has played some center field. He plays with energy, endearing him to scouts and college coaches alike. His bat is his best tool, with above-average raw power, and he could go in the seventh- to 10th-round range.
