Mack Draft: - Keith Werman, Chase Davidson, Francisco Lindor, K.C. Serna , and Mitchell Morales

Keith Werman – Virginia - Werman is another classic two-hole batter. He ranked 31st in the nation with a .414 batting average and also dropped down a team-high 15 sacrifice bunts as a sophomore in 2010. His .414 average was the highest by a Virginia player since 1981 and is the fifth-best in school history. Werman scored 32 runs with 23 RBIs and 10 stolen bases, while sporting a respectable .500 slugging percentage. The momentum for his breakout sophomore campaign began during Virginia’s run to the 2009 College World Series, when the 5’7 freshman hit .442 over the course of UVA’s last 16 games. That included a .600 clip in Omaha. Werman committed just two errors in the field in 2010 for Virginia’s Super Regional team. - http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/01/25/top-11-college-baseball-2b-to-watch-in-2011  

The junior is Georgia 1B Chase Davidson. Davidson was made famous by a Jim Thome comp from his high school days, but, tell me if you’ve heard this before, hasn’t gotten it together at the college level. When locked in, Davidson looks like a potential big league regular, but, as the numbers bear out, he is locked out (opposite of locked in?) far more often. To tap into his big power, he’ll need to find a way to shrink the far too big holes in his swing - http://baseballdraftreport.com/

#35 - SS-2B Francisco Lindor Monteverde HS, Clermont FL 5'10 170 S/R - quickness afoot and with his bat, puts the bat on the ball, occ lift with foul line power to hit 8-10 type HR in in ML, solid ML arm with carry and quick release ala Ozzie Smith, runs 4.2 from left but better between the bases to steal 20-30 plus bases in ML. Don't let him get away if you need defensive with offensive potential to shine!! http://xmlbscout.angelfire.com/

K.C. Serna – Oregon- The junior has been in the line-up at shortstop for all but a handful of games in the two years since George Horton and Oregon brought baseball back to Eugene. From the lead-off spot in the order, Serna hit a team-high .348 last year. He also led the Ducks with 14 stolen bases and a .419 OBP, while helping the program to an NCAA Regional bid in just its second year of existence. He also belted five home runs with 13 doubles. The Ventura, CA native was the starting shortstop for the Western Division at the Cape Cod League All-Star Game as a member of the Falmouth Commordores last summer. http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/01/21/top-11-college-baseball-ss-to-watch-in-2011  

http://www.perfectgame.org/Articles/View.aspx?article=5164  - - The recently completed Perfect Game World Showcase in Fort Myers featured one of the most talented groups of players ever to play in this long running event, which dates back to 1997 and was the original Perfect Game showcase. Players are 2011 prospects: - 25. SS Mitchell Morales (Wellington, FL): Morales is a very fluid shortstop with nice quickness and a strong arm and should be able to stay at the position way up the baseball ladder.
