It shouldn't take Mark Appel long to go from college at Stanford to Houston and the major leagues.

Gatewood is a 6-foot-3, 190-pound junior shortstop from Clovis (Calif.) High School near Fresno. Had he been in this draft, Gatewood would be the best shortstop, high school or college, available. He runs well, has a great throwing arm and the ball flies off his bat. He has true superstar potential and reminds people of Rockies star Troy Tulowitzki, who he patterns his game after, even wearing No. 2 in Tulo's honor.
