Drawing attention as both a pitcher and an outfielder, Trey Ball is one of the top-rated players coming out of the Midwest and is looking like a first-round pick. His fastball has been clocked at 94 mph, but he's shown some raw talent as a hitter, and that has some wondering what kind of power he could develop. Ball was named the Gatorade Indiana Baseball Player of the Year after finishing the year with a 0.76 ERA and an average of over 14 strikeouts per seven innings pitched.

What They're Saying
- Coast to Coast Prospects: "His future is almost certainly on the mound where his combination of projection and athleticism are sure to interest several teams."
- Jim Callis, Baseball America: "He has put the [pitcher/outfielder] debate to rest by showing a 91-94 mph fastball and an improved curveball this spring, but he also would merit a second- or third-round selection as a position player."
