2014 PG Underclass All American Games
2015 Top Prospects
- C - 2015 - Spring, TX
Wolforth's arm strength is almost a sideshow attraction (94 mph from the infield, 89/1.75 from behind the plate) and it somewhat distracts from the overall quality of his game, particularly his maturity and leadership skills as a catcher.
- C - 2015 - Swampscott, MA
January has a prototype catcher's build at 6-foot-3, 195 pounds and a loose and fast left handed swing that should make him an above average offensive threat for a catcher.
2016 Top Prospects
- C - 2016 - Kissimmee, FL
Iser has firmly established himself as one of the top prospects in the country this summer and perhaps the best overall position prospect. His combination of defensive tools and left handed power/bat speed is outstanding.
- OF - 2016 - Houston, TX
Washington already puts on one of the best batting practice shows in all of high school baseball with his huge right handed power but his game approach showed signs of maturity gained from a summer of playing, including some solid opposite field contact.
- LHP - 2016 - Syracuse, NY
Belge has all the physical attributes to be a first round pick in 22 months, with an outstanding athletic build, a quick arm that produces a low 90's fastball now, plus a pair of rapidly developing secondary pitches.
- RHP - 2016 - Fort Worth, TX
Henley throws smooth and easy from a high 3/4's release point that generates big downhill angle to his upper 80's fastball. He also threw the event's top breaking ball, a low 80's slider that almost broke one left handed hitter's ankles as he tried to swing and get out of the way at the same time.
- RHP - 2016 - Decatur, GA
Scouts were asking if there was any relationship between Gooden and Dwight Gooden and although we know of none at this moment, the question was obvious. Gooden has a tall, long armed 6-foot-4, 205 build, a similar delivery to Doc and a fastball that is already touching 90 mph frequently.
- OF - 2016 - Encinitas, CA
Moniak looks like he could be even younger physically but hits like a much older and advanced player. His home run Tuesday was especially impressive as he'd shown a mid to opposite field approach previously before turning on an upper 80's fastball and pulling it hard. He also played centerfield like he has the tools to stay there for a long time.
- SS - 2016 - Las Vegas, NV
We've focused mostly on Quintana's strong and powerful bat in the past but his defensive tools are really progressing at shortstop. He quietly made what might have been the most impressive defensive play of the event with a stop deep in the 5/6 hole, a lightning quick exchange and release and a laser throw across the diamond.
- C - 2016 - Oxford, MS
Dillard has fearsome power from both sides of the plate and especially from the left side, where his towering home run on Monday was one of the offensive highlights of the event.
- RHP - 2016 - Jessup, PA
Krancik stands out for his very fast right arm that currently produces a 90 mph fastball and hard mid 70's breaking ball, with more to come in the future.
- 3B - 2016 - Quincy, IL
Polak swung the bat with his usual authority and plus bat speed but looked trimmer in his lower body and stood out defensively at third base as well.
- OF - 2016 - Cypress, CA
Fletcher wowed everyone in San Diego with his outstanding outfield arm strength and stunning accuracy and carry but it's really his overall game that stands out. He's a polished high average hitter at the plate with an extremely high baseball IQ for his age.
- 3B - 2016 - Marietta, GA
Lowe is listed as a primary shortstop but it sure looks as if his future is on the mound. He throws 87-89 mph with very little effort and very smooth mechanics.
- 3B - 2016 - Coppell, TX
Gaither has all the tools, including big strength and bat speed, to be a high level hitting prospect with a few simple adjustments to his swing approach. We'd love to see more of him on the mound, as he had a 5-pitch inning that featured 5 consecutive 90 mph fastballs.
- C - 2016 - Chandler, AZ
Boyer has strength in his right handed swing and lots of skills defensively behind the plate. We'd really like to see more of him on the mound, as he topped out at 91 mph in a brief appearance on the mound and looked good doing it. And to be honest, his 70 mph knuckleball was one of the best we've seen in a while, too.
- LHP - 2016 - La Verne, CA
Some might find it unusual that a pitcher throwing "only" 81-84 is ranked so highly in a talented group of peers. But everything is there for the 6-foot-5, 175 pound Lodolo except the strength and that should kick in soon enough.
- RHP - 2016 - Forest, VA
Hess hasn't mastered the consistency part of pitching yet but he topped out at 89 mph and threw an 85-87 mph cutter, whether by intent or by accident, that was really a nasty pitch at times.
Andres P. Sosa
- SS - 2016 - San Antonio, TX
Sosa doesn't stand out for any loud physical tools but he's a very polished player defensively who has one of the best "Hit" tools in the 2016 class.
- RHP - 2016 - Beaverton, OR
Yovan is a big, physically strong and mature player with lots of tools as a primary third baseman but also some potential on the mound as well.
- 3B - 2016 - Long Beach, CA
Steer's tool is his right handed bat. He's strong and aggressive and swings hard while trying, and often succeeding, to drive the ball.
- OF - 2016 - Lakewood, CO
Featherston had some of the best right handed bat speed at the event and consistently hit the ball hard. He shows his athleticism in the outfield well on defense.
- RHP - 2016 - Chesapeake, VA
Stallings has a mature athletic build and a drop and drive delivery that produced consistent 87-89 mph fastballs that he pounded the strike zone with. His changeup and curveball show promise, too.
Spencer Van Scoyoc
- LHP - 2016 - Cedar Rapids, IA
Van Scoyoc remains the epitome of projection both on the mound and as a left handed hitting prospect as additional strength will impact both the power in his pitches and his bat speed. His skills are already very polished for a Upper Midwest prospect.
- 3B - 2016 - Irvine, CA
One of the themes of the 2016 appears to be a large group of very polished hitters, with the left handed hitting Shockey ranking solidly among the best.
- MIF - 2016 - Atlanta, GA
Johnson opened some eyes with his combination of middle of the field athleticism and speed, plus a quick left handed bat that produced surprising pull power.
- RHP - 2016 - Lakeside, CA
Duncan throws very well from a standard 3/4's slot, with an 86-88 mph fastball and a mid-70's sweeping curveball, but he's also very intriguing when he drops down to a side arm slot, as he maintains the same quality stuff with more life and deception.
- OF - 2016 - Cumming, GA
Campbell is a polished hitter with a tightly wound athleticism to his actions. He consistently squared the ball up hard in the games.
- 1B - 2016 - New Kensington, PA
Kirilloff is one of the most athletic first baseman you are likely to see, with solid average running speed and very advanced actions defensively. He has a smooth left handed swing that projects very well.
- C - 2016 - Encinitas, CA
Orr doesn't stand out physically but he sure stood out in the games, with hard contact virtually every time at bat and a variety of skills and tools behind the plate, including a very accurate arm.
2017 Top Prospects
- RHP - 2017 - Rancho Santa Fe, CA
Hurt pitched in the 86-88 mph range from a smooth delivery and arm action, impressive for a young pitcher just about to enter his sophomore season.
- OF - 2017 - Long Beach, CA
Scouts say that Ward looks like a young Marcus Wilson (2013 PG All-American) at the same age, only with a left handed swing that is already showing some flashes of promise.
