Nick Barnese RHP
(R-R)
Simi Valley HS 6-2, 175; HS Rank (BA): #74
Christian Colon SS/2B
(R-R)
Canyon HS 5-11, 175; HS Rank (BA): #18; 2006 Stats: .389-2-14 3 2B

Spider's Take: Compares to Mark Ellis and Aaron Hill in terms of size and skill set. Excellent defensive player with ability to play SS, but better suited for 2B. Will hit with occassional gap power, mostly doubles, and has the ability to steal a few bases.

Matt Dominguez 3B
(R-R)
Chatsworth HS 6-2, 185; HS Rank (BA): #8; 2006 Stats: .461-8-65 13 2B

Spider's Take: Arguably the best hitter in this year's draft class. Has the ability to hit for average and power to all fields. Draft stock has risen since strong showing in summer showcases.

Freddie Freeman OF/1B
(L-R)
El Modena HS 6-5, 215; HS Rank (BA): #40; 2006 Stats: .360-3-15 7 2B

Spider's Take: Already strong, but has a lot more power potential left to fill. Has an above average arm and pitches a little currently. Best current comparison might be Chris Duncan, who is also a 6-5 OF/1B with a long left-handed swing

RJ Hively P/3B Troy HS 6-2, 190; 2006 Stats: .342-4-18, 2.74 ERA 57 K
Erik Komatsu P/OF
(L-L)
Vanguard 5-9, 180; 2006 Stats: .329-8-33; Currently a sophomore.
Kyle Ocampo RHP
(R-R)
Riverside Poly HS 6-2, 175; HS Rank (BA): #42; 2006 Stats: 7-2, 1.62 ERA, 43 K

Spider's Take: A tough competitor with good command of a fastball, slider and changeup. His 3/4 arm slot provides good arm side run and a little sink.

Daniel Renken RHP
(R-R)
Orange Lutheran HS 6-4, 180; 2006 Stats: 8-4 2.51 73 K
Reggie Williams OF Bellflower HS 6-1, 165;
