Drafted in the 8th round (261st overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2008 (signed for $125,000)
While Arizona State won the Pac-10 with all its talent, Arizona still earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament and finished strong, winning the season-ending series with the Sun Devils. Junior lefty Eric Berger started and won the deciding game of that series and should be drafted right around the ninth round, where he went last year after not pitching all spring. Berger is still coming back from Tommy John surgery that cost him the '07 season. Berger's fastball sat in the 89-90 mph range most of the season, but he was bumping some 92s later in the year. He works up with the fastball and down with a mid- to upper 70s curveball and was trying to regain the feel for his changeup. When he's at his best, his curveball has depth and is a swing-and-miss pitch, and he could move up closer to the fifth round unless his price tag gets too high.
