80Renda, TonyCalifornia2BR/R5'08"1801991-01-24JR 
Comments: A smaller second baseman who can really hit went in the first round last year. Renda might not be Kolten Wong, but it's hard to ignore the success he's had at Cal. A hard-nosed player, Renda draws the inevitable Dustin Pedroia comparisons. His plus bat speed allows him to spray line drives to both gaps. Though undersized, he has more power than one would think, especially to the pull side. He's a solid-average runner, though his instincts and aggressiveness allow that to play up on the basepaths. Just because he's a second baseman doesn't mean he can't defend. He has a very good arm and range, anticipating and positioning himself well. His plus makeup might be what makes him stand out the most, the kind of player a team loves to have, a real baseball player who has the chance to play second every day in the big leagues.

111Mooneyham, BrettStanfordLHPL/L6'05"2351990-01-24SR 
Comments: Most of the attention given to the Stanford pitching staff goes to potential No. 1 pick Mark Appel, but that doesn't mean that this Saturday starter is being ignored. The son of a former Major Leaguer, Mooneyham is healthy now following flexor tendon surgery on his left middle finger which cost him the 2011 season. That left hand is capable of firing fastballs up to 92-93 mph with some tail and sink. His curve has the chance to be an above-average breaking ball, sharp and with plenty of depth. He mixes in a decent changeup, giving him a third Major League average or better offering. Issues with command and control have plagued Mooneyham throughout his career, but his stuff is still plenty good enough to compete at the next level.

16Giolito, LucasHarvard-Westlake HS (CA)RHPR/R6'06"2301994-07-14HS 
Comments: Until a sprained ulnar collateral ligament sidelined him for his senior season, it appeared Giolito had a legitimate shot at becoming the first high school right-hander in Draft history to go No. 1 overall.Getting comps to Roy Halladay, in terms of his size, Giolito has been projected to have three above-average to plus offerings at his disposal at the next level. While his fastball sits comfortably in the 93-mph range, he was able to reach back and crank it up to 96 mph when needed. It's a heavy fastball that has some very good late movement, and his downhill plane makes it even tougher. Giolito throws a power curve with a sharp break as it reaches the plate. He also has an excellent changeup that dips like a split-fingered pitch. He's got above-average command of all three, keeping his pitches down in the strike zone to go along with above-average mound presence and competitiveness.The SoCal right-hander wasn't viewed as having any real weaknesses, and, unlike many prep pitchers, it was thought he could move fairly quickly through a system. How his elbow injury impacts his Draft status, though, remains to be seen.

22Stroman, MarcusDukeRHPR/R5'09"1851991-05-01JR 
Comments: College relievers always get looks in the early stages of the Draft if they are believed to be able to move quickly to the big leagues. Stroman has the chance to be the first of those closer types to go off the board.Because of his size and electric arm, he gets Tom Gordon comparisions all the time. He throws his fastball consistently in the mid-90s with some pretty good tail when it's down in the zone. He complements it with a power curve that has a nasty late break to it. His command isn't fine, but he's generally around the strike zone with both offerings.As a short reliever, that might be all he needs at the next level. Stroman is coming off a dominant summer with USA Baseball, so scouts will be very curious to see how his junior season unfolds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
50Smoral, MattSolon HS (OH)LHPL/L6'08"2201994-03-18HS 
Comments: There's a lot to like about this prep lefty, from his size to his arm strength to his delivery. Before a stress fracture in his right foot ended his season in April, he was fairly high on Draft boards, with teams liking him more or less depending on how teams feel he will develop in the future. When healthy, Smoral uses an easy arm action to deliver an above-average fastball that sits in the 91-92 mph range. He'll occasionally show a plus heater. He has a very good feel for a sinking changeup and can throw both for strikes. Smoral does throw a slider, but it's a below-average offering right now that doesn't have enough depth. He's poised on the mound and goes right after hitters, but he will have to improve that breaking ball if he wants to be a starter at the next level. If he can sharpen that slider, he does have the other tools to pitch in that role. The team that takes him will be banking on his very high ceiling, though not being seen for the rest of the spring is sure to hurt his stock.

58Nay, MitchHamilton HS (AZ)3BR/R6'03"1951993-09-20HS 
Comments: The high school third baseman's name was moving up Draft boards as he capped off a so-so senior season extremely well. His calling card is his raw power, which some think will be at least above average, perhaps even plus. The question is more about his ability to hit, which projects more as fringy average. He made some adjustments to his mechanics at the plate, going from being bent over at the waist early in the year to standing up a little taller, and it paid dividends. He has the arm to play third, but his footwork isn't great, and some wonder if he'll stay there. A move to an outfielder corner might make sense. Whoever takes him will be buying the power bat, and it could result in him coming off the board on the first day of the Draft.
295Leyland, JordanAzusa Pacific University1BR/R6'04"2051989-09-06SR

355Heyman, GrantPittsford Sutherland HS (NY)OFL/R6'04"1851993-11-07HS 
60Gonzales, TylerJames Madison HS (TX)RHPR/R6'02"1751993-01-22HS 
Comments: Gonzales is more thrower than pitcher, but guys who can throw as hard as he can will always generate interest. Also a shortstop who could potentially play and pitch at the University of Texas, most think he should pitch as a professional. That might be because he has a potentially plus fastball, one he's cranked up to 96 mph in the past. He throws a slider which shows glimpses of being a good power breaking ball. There's effort to his delivery and his command is spotty. He's also not the biggest or most physical pitcher, causing concern to some about his durability. Gonzales, the nephew of a cross-checker, has the benefit of being eligible again for the Draft in two years should he go on to Texas, but it will be interesting to see if a team takes a shot at being able to bring his strong right arm into a professional setting sooner.

81DeJong, ChaseWoodrow Wilson HS (CA)RHPL/R6'04"1851993-12-29HS 
Comments: If Shane Watson is the puncher among the Southern California high school arms in this year's Draft class, DeJong is the boxer. The two have had some memorable meetings this year, with DeJong throwing well in both, and all season long. Tall and physical, DeJong will throw his fastball in the 87-92 mph range. He has a very good curve, comparable to Watson's and a very good feel for his changeup. He has a feel for pitching beyond many high schoolers, though his delivery, while improved, still needs some work. Watson has the better pure stuff (the puncher), DeJong the better pitchability (the boxer). Watson is thought to be going earlier, but both USC recruits could be off the board in the first few rounds.
