OF Xavier Avery

Age: 19 Drafted: 2008, second round, Orioles Stats: .262 average, 2 homers, 36 RBIs , 30 steals at Single-A Delmarva Skinny: Held his own in first full pro season despite age. Could have played running back at the University of Georgia. Scouts love his athleticism and think power will develop. Future: He's raw, so he likely won't see Baltimore until 2012, at the earliest.
