34. Preston Wilson

A First Round Pick and former High School Player of the Year, Preston Wilson made the Mets in 1998, only for him to be traded two weeks later to Florida.

Wilson only played 14 Games the rest of the year for the Marlins, going back to the Minors, but the year after, he was a starting Outfielder, and was second in Rookie of the Year voting (26 HR, .280).  In 2000, Wilson was a 30/30 player (31 HR, 36 SB) and led the NL in Strikeouts with 187.  He had back-to-back 23 Home Run years in 2001 and 2002 but would be traded the year after to Colorado.

Wilson had 104 Home Runs, 87 Stolen Bases, and 549 Hits with the Marlins.
