Mounds View left-handed pitcher and first baseman Sam Hentges has a busy week: Graduation Monday, playing for a berth in the state tournament Wednesday, the MLB draft Thursday-Saturday, and a graduation party over the weekend.

A source tells KSTP that the Twins, Indians, Marlins, Blue Jays, and Orioles are showing the most interest in Hentges. Depending on signability, Hentges could go as high as the second or third round. If the signing bonus offer doesn't add up, he can always use his baseball scholarship to Arkansas.
