6. (202) Omar Mammol-SS-College of Charleston-5’10-R/R-First Team Southern Conference selection. Hit .345/.458/.550 with 7 HRs and 45 RBIs. 29 to 25 BB to K ratio. 28-34 in stolen base attempts. Had a fielding % of .894 as he committed 23 errors.
7. (232) James Hooker-RHP-Mira Mesa HS-Big kid, 6’4. Signed with San Diego State. Was listed on Keith Law’s first prospect list of the spring. From Perfect Game: MPH: 91. Unorthodox delivery, pitches from 3/4 slot with some arm quickness. Good sink on upper 80s fastball, shows feel of changeup and some with slow curveball.
8. (262) Tyler Henley-CF-Rice-L/L-Leadoff type, Good left-handed bat, with ability to hit to all fields with power. If Henley were to try and hit for more power, I believe he could. But as a leadoff hitter, he has honed his skills to focus on putting the ball in play to all fields. Henley is quick. He has a very good first step in the outfield and can track down a lot of balls that most outfielders cannot get to in college baseball. However, he didn’t attempt many stolen bases last season.Henley leads Rice to the plate as the leadoff man and has improved his on-base percentage every year, reaching base in over 43 percent of his plate appearances last season. He brings a football mentality to the baseball diamond.
9. Michael Stutes-RHP-Oregon State-6’1-Friday night starter for the defending national champs. 9-4 with an ERA of 4.05. 111 Ks in 113 IP. 8-2 with a 3.10 ERA in 2006.
