3Hosmer, EricAmerican Heritage School (FL)1BL/L6'04"2151989-10-24HS400K
Comments: Arguably the top high school bat in the Draft class, the lefty first baseman has drawn comparisons to Casey Kotchman for his advanced hitting approach, though he might not quite be there. He's got a ton of upside with the bat, both in terms of hitting for average and power and he's surprisingly nimble defensively. Teams who like high school hitters with potential to move fairly quickly will be on Hosmer all spring.

145Lamb, JohnLaguna Hills HS (CA)LHPL/L6'03"1851990-07-10HS400K
Comments: As recently as last summer, Lamb was a two-way player who was drawing some interest as a John Mabry-type hitter. It appears that he's now more focused on pitching and it's paying off. If he continues to improve his breaking ball and his command, the lefty should garner plenty of attention leading up to the Draft.

36Montgomery, MichaelHart HS (CA)LHPL/L6'05"1801989-07-01HS400K
Comments: Every spring, there seem to be high school lefties who gain some "helium" and move up Draft charts. Montgomery is one of them this season, thanks to a spike in velocity that has the southpaw getting up to 93 mph. Combine that with decent command and a projectable frame and he's becoming more intriguing to teams willing to work with him on developing his secondary offerings.
Enhanced Scouting Report
475Saito, DerrickCal Poly San Luis ObispoLHPL/L5'09"1551987-12-26JR400K
Comments: A walk-on who attended Cal Poly for the engineering program, Saito has opened a lot of eyes and left a lot of scouts scratching their heads. To say he's undersized is an understatement, but he's got a huge arm and the ability to throw four pitches for strikes. Someone will have to take a risk to take him, but they could have a top-notch lefty specialist if they do.
