Shortstop Josh Prince had a breakout season, batting .353 and tying for the NCAA Division I lead with 48 steals in 55 attempts. That was a far cry from his performance in 2008, when he batted .236 in his first season at Tulane after transferring from Texas. He struggled last year while recovering from elbow surgery, and getting healthy and wearing glasses to correct an astigmatism led to his turnaround. Prince's best tool is his speed, which makes him a threat on the bases and allows him to cover ground at shortstop. He's not the most fluid defender, but he does have a solid arm. A 6-foot-3, 195-pounder, Prince controls the strike zone, makes contact and offers modest power from the right side. He doesn't use his legs well or get much leverage in his swing, and he'll have to prove he can hit with wood bats.
