Comments: Teams looking for good defense behind the plate surely know all about Babineau, one of the better catch-and-throw guys in the Draft class. Though he's improved offensively, the bat lags behind the defensive tools. He looks like a guy who could use his defense and leadership to become a solid backup catcher at the big-league level, a guy who'll shut down the running game and maybe give you a .250 average and 10 homers annually.

378Webb, RobertHeath HS (KY)RHPR/R6'03"2101989-08-18HS400K
Comments: There are things about Webb that scouts love: his size, his strength, his aggressiveness on the mound. Most of all, there's the velocity, which gets up to the mid-90s. What's lacking are other pitches -- his curve and slider are below average -- and his command. The team that has seen enough glimpses in those areas that convince them he'll improve will take a flier on his arm strength. That could happen within the first few rounds.

168Cowgill, CollinU KentuckyCFR/L5'09"1951986-05-22SR400K
Comments: Cowgill is one of those college outfielders whose performance surpasses how his tools grade out. He's got a good hitting approach, but scouts don't expect him to hit for power in the future. He most likely profiles best as a fourth-outfielder type, the kind of guy who could fill in every day in center, but wouldn't be seen as a long-term solution. After turning down the A's (29th round) last year, he's certainly improved his Draft status this year.

104Eichhorn, KevinAptos HS (CA)RHPR/R6'00"1701990-02-06HS400K
Comments: A huge start in front of a large audience at the National Classic in late March certainly didn't hurt, but Eichhorn will have to work past the "undersized righty" stigma. He does have two decent offerings, plus command and poise to help him with that, as well as good bloodlines -- his father Mark spent 11 seasons in the bigs. A few years at Santa Clara might not hurt, but that will depend on when he's drafted.

26Schlereth, DanielU ArizonaLHPL/L6'00"2101986-05-09SR400K
Comments: Schlereth was drafted in the eighth round last year by the A's, but chose to return to Arizona. He's got three decent offerings, though he struggles at times with commanding them. He misses a lot of bats, but he also will pile up walks at times. He's got a football mentality on the mound, courtesy of his father, former NFLer Mark, and could be the kind of left-handed setup man who gets to the bigs quickly.
