    2 final projections. I wouldn't be too excited about drafting a college reliever...

    The first one is BA, the second is Keith Law.

    15. LOS ANGELES (NL). Hicks also fits what the Dodgers look for, and if he's gone, they're zeroing in on pitchers. Martin, fireballing Texas Christian righthander Andrew Cashner, Hunt and Arizona lefthander Daniel Schlereth are all in the mix. Los Angeles is the one team seriously considering Arizona State two-way star Ike Davis as a lefthanded pitcher, but may not have seen enough of him on the mound to get that daring.

    Projected Pick: ANDREW CASHNER, rhp, Texas Christian.
    15. Los Angeles -- Daniel Schlereth, LHP, Arizona

    The Dodgers haven't been thrilled with the lack of polished high school players in this draft, and might punt and take a reliever instead, with Schlereth, Andrew Cashner and Ryan Perry all candidates. The one high school name that is hot here is Collier.

    We've taken Ethan Martin. 2 way HS player, classic Logan White pick. He was announced as a 3B.

    Here is some instant analysis on him.

    2008 Pick: Ethan Martin, RHP/3B, Stephens County HS (Georgia)

    Height/Weight: 6-3, 200 | Age: 19

    Martin entered the season as a third baseman but his strong arm improved so much on the mound that many scouts are now split on his future role. The right-hander can throw his fastball in the 91-96 mph range and he maintains his velocity well. He flashes a plus power curve, along with a splitter that he uses as an out-pitch. Martin’s control is OK but it should improve if he concentrates on pitching full time. As a third baseman, Martin is athletic and a plus defender. He has plus raw power. A team that really likes him as a pitcher could surprise a lot of people by taking him somewhat early in the first round. A high school football player, Martin is committed to Clemson University.

    Even though he was drafted as a 3B, I'm willing to bet that he'll be tried as a 2B to start out his career.

    Early write up on Martin from MLB.com. Saw a game where he pitched.

    Focus Area

    Comments
    Fastball: Martin threw his fastball in the 91-96 mph range. He maintained the velocity, throwing 94 mph in the seventh inning.

    Fastball movement: He had hard, four-seamer life.

    Curve: He showed a consistently plus curve, a power breaking ball in the 79-82 mph range, that he used as a strikeout pitch to lefties and righties.

    Splitter: He showed flashes of a plus split-fingered fastball, up to 84 mph, that worked as an out pitch as well.

    Control: He was solid-average all night, at times above-average, filling up the strike zone with three pitches. He can throw his fastball for strikes to both sides of the plate.

    Poise: He is super competitive on the mound.

    Physical Description: He is big, strong, projectable -- the prototypical power pitcher.

    Medical Update: Healthy.

    Strengths: He's a big, strong power pitcher with three above-average to plus offerings.

    Weaknesses: New on the radar as a pitching prospect, there's no history to draw on. Scouts will need to see how he bounces back throughout the season to be convinced.

    Summary: He went from an interesting two-way player to an upper-echelon pitching prospect in one start. Showing three above-average pitches he can throw for strikes as well as the ability to maintain mid-90s velocity deep into a game, Martin was sure to be one of the most closely watched prep pitchers in the Draft class. He jumped on the screen with that one start; if he keeps it going, he'll move quickly up the charts.

    From Keith Law

    Martin is a two-way player. He came into the year as a potential first-rounder as a third baseman, but he didn't hit well at the beginning. He likes to pitch, and he shut down American Plantation H.S. (the team of prospects Eric Hosmer and Adrian Nieto) in February. He throws 91-95 mph. He has a chance to be an above-average bat at third base, and he obviously has a plus arm. I would be surprised if the Dodgers kept well at beginn. Likes to pitch. Shut down Hosmer and Nieto team in a feb. turn 91-95 off the mound. Chance to be an above abverage bat at third . Plus arm. Good athlete. Would be surprise if keep him as a pitcher because they tend to prefer guys with polish. He has arm strength, but not much polish as a pitcher.
