Joel Effertz was the state's No. 2-ranked prospect as a Ladysmith High senior in 2009, when the Dodgers drafted him in the 37th round. He spent a redshirt year at Arizona before transferring back home to Madison JC. He struck out 18 in a regional championship game against Kankakee (Ill.) CC, putting the Wolfpack in the Division II Junior College World Series. A 6-foot-3, 235-pound righthander, Effertz had his fastball velocity fluctuate this spring but sat at 91-92 mph at his best. He locates his fastball and improved his curveball, but he'll need to watch his weight.
