Drafted in the 3rd round (69th overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2003 (signed for $500,000)
Palmisano ranks right behind Doetsch among national juco position prospects, and he'll definitely be part of the 2003 draft mix because he's not under control. Teams have known about him for a while, and he turned down $175,000 as a 21st-round pick out of high school two years ago. He wasn't drafted in 2002 because he hurt his shoulder and required offseason surgery. He doesn't have a gun behind the plate, but he has good footwork and accuracy. He's a very athletic 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, with average speed and opposite-field power to right-center field. Palmisano was very impressive at the Florida state juco tournament and could have pushed himself into the third round. The shortage of catchers works in his favor.
