One name that I was on the lookout for but he didn't make it is Fernando Hernandez, RHP. He quietly had a great season out of the Kanny bullpen. I was wondering if Randar or any of other scout-types have seen him pitch.
A reliever at that level has got to be utterly electric to make a top 30 list. I haven't seen him play, but at 5'11" and 190, doubt that a 49th round pick is fits that description...
