Mack Draft: – Mike McGee, Alex Meyer, Jeff Schaus, Jacob Felts, Alex Chittenden

Mike McGee:- Sr. – RHP – Florida State – McGee is another talented two-way player. He earned All-American honors last year after batting .328 with team-highs of 17 home runs and 73 RBIS, while also finishing among the nation’s leaders with 13 saves. McGee was 4-1 with a 2.96 ERA in 20 appearances in his first full season as FSU’s closer. He held opposing batters to a .160 average with 33 strikeouts in 27 1/3 innings. The Port St. Lucie, FL native is on our list of top outfielders to watch this season as well. McGee was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 37th round in 2007 and was picked in the 41st round by the Arizona Diamondbacks last year. He opted to return for his senior season, in part because most pro scouts see him as a pitcher, while he would like to remain an everyday player. –

RHP Alex Meyer Kentucky 6’9 225 – Classic arm strength up to 98 mph, most are 92-93 but very straight with FB, has had so so college career after being talked about going in first rounder in HS. Needs to put it all together this season and sign the dotted line and work with pro instructors to iron out his hitches and glitches. CB has downward action from 12/6 and can over power hitters on occ, but lack of command has hurt him overall. Potential is there to be as good if not better than Jeff Niemann of the Rays.  

Jeff Schaus – Clemson – Schaus was consistent in his first two years at Clemson. He sported a .317 average with 16 home runs and 81 RBIs over his first two seasons with the Tigers in 2008 & 2009. The bulk of his RBI total came when he drove-in 51 runs in an All-ACC sophomore campaign. His batting average stayed steady in 2010, but his run production jumped. Schaus batted .320 last year with 15 HR, 14 doubles and a team-leading 87 RBIs to help Clemson reach the College World Series. He had a .542 slugging percentage and was the only Tiger to start all 70 of his team’s games. The 6’1 son of parents who both played college basketball at Canisius has started 193 games in his first three years at Clemson. He’s back for his senior year after being drafted in the 27th round last year by the Cleveland Indians. – 

Jacob Felts (Texas)- is a 6’1 195 pound catcher out of Orangefield, Texas where he attended Orangefield High School. He participated in the 2009 Under Armour All-American Game and was named First-Team All Texas 4A by the Texas Sports Writers Association as a junior. He is expected to start the season behind the dish for the Longhorns in the upcoming year. –  

Shortstop — Alex Chittenden — University of Louisville – On Monday UofL head coach Dan McDonnell announced Chittenden would start at shortstop for the Cards. Chittenden batted .588 with eight home runs and 19 stolen bases as a senior in high school. –
