80Sample, TylerJ K Mullen Prep School (CO)RHPR/R6'07"1989-06-27HS400K
Comments: If you're looking for a big right-hander with power stuff, Sample might be your guy. He's got a fastball that cranks up to 95 mph and a hammer curve. He doesn't use the change much, but it should be a pitch for him in the future. He's never going to be an above-average command guy, but he should throw enough strikes to be successful. He might be a bit of a project, but at 6-foot-7 with that kind of stuff, someone will be willing to try and see it through.

115Melville, TimothyWentzville Holt HS (MO)RHPR/R6'05"2101989-10-09HS400K
Comments: One of the top high school arms in the Draft class, Melville has a big projectable frame which has plenty of room for growth. Already possessing above-average arm strength, he could add even more velocity in the future. He shows glimpses of a good knuckle-curve, but will have to find more consistency with it. Same goes for his changeup, which is clearly his third pitch. He draws some comparisons to Yankee Phil Hughes when he was in high school and should find himself gone in the first round just as Hughes did.
