4. Zach Alvord, 2b/3b, Tampa: Hit .258/.307/.416 with six homers last season at Auburn; needs to tap into power potential by being more selective.

8. Carlos Asuaje, 2b/3b, Nova Southeastern: Just 5-foot-8 but has some bat-to-ball skills, gap power; hit .280 in Cape Cod League last summer.
9. John-Austin Shepard, rhp, Tusculum (Tenn.): Closer mentality, 6-foot-4, 215-pound frame and aggressiveness help his 88-92 mph fastball, hard 80-82 mph slider play up.
10. Zak Blair, 3b, Mercyhurst (Pa.): Versatile 5-foot-10 lefty hitter makes plenty of contact (8 SO in 160 AB in 2012); has played 2B, 3B, OF, has utility future; hit .338 in Cape last summer; already 23.
