Scott Elbert, lhp, Vero Beach. This is the kind of season Elbert is having: On June 28 against Daytona, he went until there were two outs in the eighth inning before he gave up a hit. That single, the only one off him, cost him the game 1-0 for it drove in a runner who had walked and stolen second. Vero, meanwhile, had seven hits- and couldn't score. Elbert struck out 13 men in the contest, a personal high while walking four. He's now 5-5 with a .2.49 ERA. His 93 strikeouts in 79.2 innings ranks third in the Florida State League. It's also the second time for Elbert to be chosen.
