    RHP/OF John Hurd generated modest interest as a strong-armed right fielder and No. 3 hitter for the College of Southern Idaho, but it escalated considerably when he was tried as a closer. Hurd pitched for the first time last year and scouts took notice this spring when his fastball sat at 92-93 and peaked at 95 mph. An 83-84 mph slider remains a work in progress.
