Two Arizona Wildcats raising draft stock

University of Arizona shortstop Kevin Newman led the Cape Cod League in batting average last summer … and also did so the summer before that, the first time in league history that had happened. While that alone doesn't guarantee a high draft slot, the fact that Newman also can play in the middle of the field and projects to stay there made him a potential first-rounder coming into this spring. With his outstanding play so far and a draft that looks weaker than it did a month ago, I think he has a chance to go among the top 15 picks
