Drafted in the 8th round (253rd overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2008 (signed for $35,000)
Andy Dirks has a knack for getting on base. He entered NCAA super-regional play with a 28-game hitting streak and a 73-game on-base streak, and he set a Northwoods League record last summer by reaching base in 52 straight contests. He's an athletic 6-foot, 195-pound center fielder, yet Dirks never has been drafted. He'll make a nice senior sign this June. He has a short swing, patient approach and gap power, and the plus speed to steal bases. His hard-nosed attitude also endears him to scouts.
