  • A lot of heat has been in to see Texarkana outfielder Slade Heathcott over the past week, including a lot of action from the Yankees (scouting director Damon Oppenheimer and two other Yankee execs), Diamondbacks and Phillies. The postponement of Texas high school games earlier this month due to the swine flu scare pushed the playoffs back to this week, and both Heathcott and his team are on a tear, so he's continuing to play and draw more national scouts rushing in for last looks. The Phillies don't have a first-round pick and aren't likely to get a shot at Heathcott at No. 75.
