Scott Gracey was the state's most intriguing talent and earned comparisons to Blue Jays righthander Jeremy Accardo due to a similar story. Like Accardo, Gracey primarily is a shortstop in college and hit .332 this spring, though with no homers even at New Mexico's altitude. While he's an excellent defender at short, he's a much better prospect on the mound, but he had not pitched enough to be crosschecked by many teams as a pitcher, making it hard to draft him high. Gracey pitched some in the MINK League last summer with the Beatrice Bruins (one-time summer league address of Joba Chamberlain), and shows a clean arm with 90-93 mph velocity on his fastball. His best pitch might just be a mid-80s hard slider/cutter that shows above-average potential. A redshirt sophomore, Gracey has leverage but also needs to get on a mound if he wants to be a professional pitcher.
