6. CLINT FRAZIER, OF, LOGANVILLE (Ga.) H.S.

A five-tool talent with developing power and excellent bat speed, Frazier (left) is still raw, but he could rocket up the draft board with a strong spring.

7. KRIS BRYANT 3B, SAN DIEGO

The top college power hitter (five homers in four games last week) needs to cut down on his K's. Scouts think Bryant, who hits to all fields, will eventually end up at first base.

8. JONATHON CRAWFORD RHP, FLORIDA

Crawford's stock has been up since his no-hitter in the NCAA regionals last year. His stuff (a mid-90s fastball and a plus slider) is as nasty as anyone's.

9. AUSTIN WILSON OF, STANFORD

A 12th-round pick out of high school, Wilson has bloomed into a big-time power hitter. He was impressive in the Cape Cod League, hitting .313/.436/.623 and playing solid D.

10. TREY BALL OF/LHP, NEW CASTLE (Ind.) H.S.

Scouts still aren't sure whether the talented two-way player projects better as a pitcher (he has a developing low-90s fastball) or an outfielder.
