104. Mississippi State JR LHP Nick Routt: good FB movement; relies heavily on FB; 91 peak; plus circle CU before injury, now just a good straight CU; SL with cut fastball action; plus command; ulnar nerve replacement surgery in 2010; really smart pitcher; 6-4, 210

105. Arkansas JR LHP Geoffrey Davenport: 87-90 FB, 91 peak; above-average 76 CB; decent CU; good command; 6-1, 180 ; Tommy John surgery in March 2011

106. Arizona State JR LHP Mitchell Lambson: outstanding 72-74 CU with outstanding arm action that sometimes dips into upper-60s; uses the CU a ton; 85-87 FB, 88-90 peak; plus command; plus control; maybe a little Josh Spence in him; 6-1, 200 pounds

107. Southern Mississippi SR RHP Todd McInnis: 88-92 FB; very good 12-6 CB; hard SL; decent CU; slight frame; outstanding fielder

108. Howard FR JC RHP Connor Sadzeck: 95 peak FB; 6-6, 200

109. Oklahoma State SO RHP Randy McCurry: 94-95 FB pre-injury, now back to 93 peak; finally healthy and hitting 96; SL, CB, CU

111. Connecticut JR RHP Kevin Vance: 88-92 FB; plus CB; plus command; good hitter; 6-0, 200 pounds

112. South Dakota State SR RHP Blake Treinen: 92-94 FB, 97 peak; improved SL; working on CU; improved command; 6-4, 220 pounds; didn’t pitch in first three years at Baker (Kansas) or Arkansas; had possible transfer to Florida voided last season;

113. Army SR RHP Kevin McKague: 92-96 FB; mid-80s SL; great splitter; missed most of 2011 due to back injury; 6-5, 230 pounds

114. Rice JR LHP Taylor Wall: upper-80s FB, peak 88; plus CU that he relies on heavily; average at best CB and SL; CB shows more potential; repeatable mechanics; 6-2, 200 pounds

115. Florida State JR RHP Hunter Scantling: Scantling is huge (6-8, 270 pounds) and athletic, but his stuff still doesn’t quite match his imposing frame. That could change in a hurry, but for now he’s still sitting in the same upper-80s with iffy breaking stuff that he was at back in high school. It’ll be interesting to see if he’ll get more consistent innings as a starter or if Florida State opts to keep him coming out of the bullpen in 2011.
