    RHP Brian Kirwan had high hopes of being an early-round pick after flashing above-average velocity at last summer's Area Code Games. But he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last November playing quarterback for his high school football team and didn't take the mound again until late April. He was brought along slowly, but his velocity was back in the low to mid-90s by mid-May. The 6-foot-4 Kirwan looked like a good bet to end up at UCLA, but his late surge may cause a team to take a flier on him, monitor his rehabilitation over the summer and make a run at signing him before classes start in the fall.
