2001 South Top Prospect
2002 Top Prospects
- RHP - 2002 - Maracaibo Zulia, VE
Fernandez is rated one of the top prospects in baseball rich Venezuela. He has been in the mid 90s this summer. At Baylor he was 90 to 93 and showed a late breaking slider and drop down changeup.
- LHP - 2002 - Tampa, FL
We have seen Figueroa a few times earlier. Once again he was impressive. His velocity was down a little, but he still managed upper 80s to 90. The life on his fastball was as good as we've seen from anyone this year. His breaking ball is devastating at times and average at other times. His changeup is improving also.
- OF - 2002 - Tampa, FL
Urdaneta is another player we have seen several times. He is raw, but extremely talented. His bat improves each time we see him and his running ability is always amazing. He ran a 6.53 on a slow wet track at Baylor. He was 88 mph from the outfield, another area he is improving quickly. He just needs to play!
- LHP - 2002 - Round Rock, TX
White impressed us greatly. A big lefty in the high 80s with a plus breaking ball and plus command. This kid is for real and needs to be followed closely. He will throw in the low 90s for sure, maybe even better.
- RHP - 2002 - Corpus Christi, TX
Sanchez was a giant surprise to us. He throws a lot of pitches in the 90 to 92 range and with some sinking life at times. Makings of good breaking ball. Big strong right-hander.
- 3B - 2002 - Covington, LA
Tisone is a definite 2-way prospect. He swings the bat well with a short stroke and quick hands. He flashes wood bat power potential. As a pitcher he threw 87 to 90 with life. He has a good sharp mid 70s breaking ball and good command.
- 3B - 2002 - Dallas, TX
Gattis is an interesting prospect. He runs close to average, has a good baseball body and can hit with power. As a pitcher he threw 87-89 with some life and showed a nice mid 70s slurve.
- RF - 2002 - Englewood, CO
Kliment will go as far as his bat will take him. This kid can mash, the ball really jumps off his bat. He's a smart player with other decent skills, but it's his bat that will create the most interest.
- RHP - 2002 - Keller, TX
Cole has a great pitchers frame and a live arm. He was 87-89 at Baylor with some life. His slider 76-78 is a promising pitch.
- C - 2002 - La Jolla, CA
Frost is a top flight catcher/hitter. Others may have a more prototype pro body, but few can play at this kids present level. He has a strong, quick arm and moves his feet and body well behind the dish. He hits with pull power and dominates the inner half of the plate.
- C - 2002 - Fort Worth, TX
Bullock brings a lot to the table. A very strong arm and serious power potential are his ticket. He has definite catching and hitting skills and an outstanding catchers body.
- RHP - 2002 - San Antonio, TX
Pape is a big, country strong right-hander who can really pitch. At Baylor he was 87-89 touching 90 and showed what looked like a cutter. His breaking ball was 74 with good spin. His changeup was a bit slow at 75 mph. He showed good command and pitchability.
- LHP - 2002 - Henderson, NV
Mangiapani doesn't look the part, but believe us when we say he is one outstanding lefty. He has an exceptionally fast arm that produces lively fastballs anywhere from 83 to 88. He has a tight spinning curveball and good changeup. Throws a bit across his body, but good stuff and good command.
- LHP - 2002 - Abilene, TX
Meyer is another not so big lefty with an outstanding arm. He was 86-89 with a decent 69 mph curve ball. The changeup was good, but maybe a hair slow at 72. He can hit, also.
- RHP - 2002 - Rockwall, TX
Smith was yet another good looking right-hander at Baylor. His 87-89 fastball came out of a high knee, balanced delivery. His curve ball was low 70s but showed good bite. His change was irratic in velocity, but looked like a good pitch.
- RHP - 2002 - Deer Park, TX
Lewis is very interesting and projects well. He was 85 to 88 and kept the ball down. He showed a very nice 12-6 curve ball around 70 mph and a decent 77 mph changeup.
- RHP - 2002 - Austin, TX
Gruver is yet another big projectable right-hander. He was 85-87 at Baylor with a 74-76 breaking ball. He has a good compact clean delivery. He can hit, too!
- RHP - 2002 - Houston, TX
Medlock is extremely interesting. He was 86-89 in Baylor, but we think he has thrown much better than that. He has three pitches with good command. He can pitch!
- RHP - 2002 - Arlington, TX
Gardner is a not so big right-hander and outfielder. He threw mostly fastballs, but they were good ones with excellent life in the 87-89 range. He did flash a couple of decent sliders? He also flashed some good hitting ability.
- OF - 2002 - Carrollton, TX
Henry has some pitching ability, but we like him better as a hitting outfielder. He has big time power potential and a very smooth quick stroke.
- LHP - 2002 - Nicoma Park, OK
Cochell traveled from the American Legion World Series to Baylor. He is an outstanding lefty who shows a very good breaking ball and pitchability. He was mid 80s at Baylor, but his knee buckling slurve and good body didn’t go unnoticed.
- RHP - 2002 - Yoakum, TX
Boening is another RHP who projects well. He was mid 80s, but there is much more in there. He can really hit and could easily be considered a position prospect.
- 1B - 2002 - Midland, TX
Overstreet can not be ignored. He has a major league body and has a big bat. With his build and arm he has to be considered a possible pitcher.
- RHP - 2002 - Midlothian, TX
Rodgers is very interesting both as a pitcher and as a position player. He swings the bat, runs MLB average. As a pitcher he threw 86-88 with a good 77-78 slider and 74-75 change.
- C - 2002 - Grand Praire, TX
Big catcher probably ranked too low here. Big power potential, very strong arm. Can hit and has a great catchers body. McGuire is extremely projectable.
- C - 2002 - Austin, TX
We like Kleinman a lot. He plays for keeps and has good feet behind the dish. He has a nice short stroke and displayed some pull power. The ball jumps and he uses the whole field.
- RHP - 2002 - Pasadena, TX
McGrew is yet another promising prospect with raw potential. He has average speed, a good arm, can play the game and shows big time hitting ability with power potential.
- SS - 2002 - Colleyville, TX
Maitland is a good solid player with a serious tool in his bat. He has a professional hitting approach and can really smoke some line drives.
- C - 2002 - Missouri City, TX
Plumaj didn't show his true ability or power potential at the plate at Baylor. He did show his MLB body and catching skills enough for us to rank him.
- C - 2002 - Mansfield, TX
Unumb has a chance to make some big waves. He showed good wood bat hitting ability and with power. He also displayed some excellent defensive ability behind the plate.
- RHP - 2002 - Waxahachie, TX
- 3B - 2002 - Denton, TX
- RHP - 2002 - Addison, TX

- SS - 2002 - Reno, NV
Sindlinger has pretty good infield actions and flashed some serious hitting ability.
- RHP - 2002 - Bryan, TX
Stiller could be ranked right up in the top 10 easily. He has been in the upper 80s before and has very good pitching ability. He projects off the charts!
- 3B - 2002 - Mansfield, TX
Good player with inf. Actions, arm and bat. Good looking pitcher as well.
- C - 2002 - Richmond, TX
- OF - 2002 - Arlington, TX

2003 Top Prospects
- OF - 2003 - Slidell, LA
On the mound he topped out 94 mph, throwing lots of 90s. He ran a 6.7 in the 60 and showed plus arm from the outfield. Paul has a quick swing that creates a lot of bat speed from the left side. Add everything together and you have one of the finest 03 prospects in America.
- OF - 2003 - San Antonio, TX
Harris has run much better times before Baylor. He has MLB average to plus arm strength from the outfield. He can cover a lot of ground and plays the game for keeps. His best tool is his bat. He has some power and the ball really jumps off his bat. In fact Harris is one of the more impressive 03 hitters we have seen this year.
- RHP - 2003 - Sealy, TX
Krampitz is a talented player/pitcher who showed good hitting ability. Most importantly he is a pitcher with a strong live arm. He threw 86-88 at Baylor with a 75-76 slurve and a 76 changeup.
