2011 Ohio Valley Showcase
Zach Farmer (2013 – Piketon,OH) was impressive on the mound for the Red Team. He sat at 88-91 MPH with his fastball and throws it easy. Farmer’s arm works well with good arm speed. He also threw a tight curveball at 69-72 MPH and a deceptive change up with sink at 74-75 MPH. He repeats his delivery and his velocity projects. He is one of the top left handed pitchers in the country in the 2013 class.
William DuPont (2012 – Ellisville, MO) showed good bat speed with a good swing path. He hit a line drive off an 88 MPH Zach Farmer fastball for a routine single but stretched it into a double. He showed very good speed down the line and instincts on the base paths.
Tyler Cox (2012 – Lexington, KY) pitched at 86-88 MPH with his fastball and showed feel for a curveball at 75-77 MPH. His curveball has a short sharp break on a 12/6 plane. Cox has a slight hitch in his delivery that brings some deception to hitters. He is a good college prospect with some pitchability.
Andrew McDonald (2013 – Mason, OH) pitched at 84-86 MPH with his fastball that had good arm side run to it. He’s got a projectable 6-5/210 lb. body with room to fill. McDonald also throws a 10/4 slider with some tilt to it. He’s a good follow for the 2013 class.
Cameron Whitehead (2013 – West Chester, OH) is a good catching prospect who showed catch and throw tools and receiving skills. He consistently popped in the 1.94-2.00 range in between innings and handled some good pitchers easily. Whitehead also looked good at the plate showing good bat speed and a nice approach. He hit a hard single up the middle off an 88 MPH fastball from Tyler Cox.
OF Tom Stoffel (2013 – Englewood, OH) took a nice round of BP earlier in the day and continued to show well during Saturday’s game. He is a projectable left-handed bat who starts with his hands high above his head but shows quick swing actions and the ability to drive the ball. He doubled to the left-center gap during his first at-bat and showed balance as well as a smooth, easy swing.
Austin(DJ) Allinger (2015 – West Chester, OH) pitched at 83-86 MPH with his fastball. He uses a short quick arm action with good arm speed. He’s an interesting follow for the 2015 class as his mechanics are still raw. There is more velocity in there with some adjustments, which he has plenty of time to make.
