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.

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.

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
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.
