Drafted in the 3rd round (93rd overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2002 (signed for $459,000)
One of the best long snappers in the nation, Petrick has signed to play football with Washington State. He's an enticing baseball prospect because he's 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds and has thrown 88-91 mph all spring in bad weather. He needs polish but won't be a long-term project. He has the makings of a solid curveball, though he tips it off because he slows down his arm speed when he throws it. Petrick also has a feel for a changeup and is all the more projectable because he's just 17. The Cubs have monitored his progress closely.
