One of the top high school prospects in Pennsylvania last year, Austin Urban turned down the Orioles as a 27th-round pick. Originally committed to Penn State, he opted to attend Des Moines Area CC so he could be eligible for the 2011 draft. After a terrible start this spring, he came on down the stretch and struck out 13 against Williston State (N.D.) in a district tournament championship game win that put the Bears in the Division II Junior College World Series. A 6-foot-2, 180-pound righthander, Urban has a 90-92 mph fastball that touches 94. He also an 83-85 mph slider and the makings of a changeup. Scouts don't love his one-piece arm action, however, and he needs to repeat his delivery better in order to improve his command.
