David Contreras (Free Agent, RHP/3B, Miami, FL) has a good lean pitchers build with room to add strength. He pitched from a low 3/4 arm slot with a short arm action while repeating his mechanics. Displayed a quick arm with his FB ranging from 85-88 MPH with arm side run. David had a good change-up that had run and sink and maintained his arm speed well.

Kevin Garner (2013, OF/LHP, Little Rock Central High School, Little Rock, AR) had a exceptional day at the plate going 3-3 with 2 doubles, a triple, and a run scored. He displayed a fluid stroke, line drive swing plane, and good extension with a gap to gap approach. Kevin also pitched, and his fastball was 78-82 MPH with life and complimented it well with 1/7 CB. He attacked the zone and is a strike thrower.

Giuliano Montanez (2013, 2B/SS/3B, Carlos Beltran Baseball Academy, Carolina, PR) had a good day with his bat going 3-4 with 2 runs scored and a stolen base. He displayed a good approach at the plate with a fluid stroke and quick hands and showed the ability to lift the ball.

Michael Chontos (2013, RHP/SS/3B, Egg Harbor Twp., Egg Harbor Township, NJ) he made consistent contact with a short compact swing with quickness in his bat. Michael had some battles at the plate with his aggressive approach making pitches throw deep into the count multiple times.

Cristian Bracero (2013, Manati, PR) Had his fastball up to 84mph today with his 11/5 curveball sitting at 71.  Cristian's ball comes out easy and he stays tall on his backside.

Joseph Tegenkamp (2013, Pensacola, FL) had a good day at the plate reaching on all 3 trips, going 2-3.  Joseph is a lead off type hitter that is quick to first.

Hiram Berrios Medina (2013, Ciales, PR) Lead the White team in hits today with 3 and added a stolen base. Hiram got on base every at bat going 3-3.   Medina has good bat speed and stays inside the ball well.

Wilfredo Crespo (2013, Toa Alta, PR) had two singles on the day going 2-3. Wilfredo Crespo showed some bat speed in his short compact swing.  Wilfredo also looked very smooth defensively.

Michael Avila (2013 1B Miami, FL) was one of the strongest players to take BP for the World Uncommitted on Saturday, showing easy loft to straight away center field. He hits from a strong base and stays on his back very well. He has present power and it’s only going to get better.

Cristian Bacero (2013 OF/RHP Manati, PR) was one of the most consistent line drive hitters in his batting practice session. Despite some moving parts to his swing, he was quick to the ball and produced hard shots to all parts of the field.

Jorge Castro (2013 SS Yonkers, NY) showed some potential from both sides of the plate, but was particularly impressive from the left hand side. He has somewhat of a high leg kick and a compact swing path. He flashed some impressive carry to his pull side, sending one deep to the right center field gap.

Dayvon Dozier (2013 SS/2B Wesley Chapel, FL) had arguably the most impressive bat speed on display at the uncommitted BP, showing quick wrists inside and outstanding carry to the middle of the field. Dozier also looked very athletic.

Omar Figueroa (2013 C Ponce, PR) looks the part of powerful lefty bat. He has good lower half strength and a large upper body. The ball jumped off the barrel and he hit multiple shots high off the right field fence. His raw power was impressive as any player of the day.

Kevin Garner (2013 OF/LHP Little Rock, AR) ended up putting on quite a hitting clinic in game action, but also took a very solid BP round. His round started slowly but built into solid line drives up the middle and to the pull side.

Michael Landestoy (2013 SS Santo Domingo, DR) hits from a stance that has his weight slightly forward, and he ends up using his hands very well in his swing. He’s thin and projectable, but already showed flashes of some good bat speed and pull side power.

Alexander Melendez (2013 OF/IF Cayey, PR) displayed some impressive pull power, driving one ball out to left center field and hitting several rockets to the gap. His bat speed stands out, as does his ability to spin on and lift the pitch inside. He’s a very high follow and high upside righty bat.

Spencer Phillips (2013 OF/RHP Palm Bay, FL) hits from a high, upright setup. There are some moving parts to his swing, but he consistently produced hard line drives up the middle and to his pull side.

Miguel Angel Riestra Rivera (FA SS/RHP Caguas, PR) had some length to his swing but also flashed some impressive strength and lift. The swing mechanics need some tweaking, but the life to his bat is worth keeping a close eye on.

Troy Sieber (2013 3B/OF Salem, NJ) showed off some big carry on some deep drives to right field as well as some bat speed. He can get long, but he uses his lower half well and consistently drives the baseball.

James "Jae" Skoda (2013 OF/RHP Grand Bay,  AL) had one of the strongest, more athletic bodies on display in BP, and he backed it up with some deep, booming shots to straight away center field. He started slow, but the raw power eventually showed up.

Randy Torres (2013 OF/1B/LHP Bronx, NY) took a very patient batting practice, looking calm and professional. While he did pull off a couple offerings, he also hit some ringing line drives to his pull side. There’s definitely some bat speed and athleticism there to watch closely.

Luis Touron (2013 OF Miami, FL) takes home the title of most usable present power at the uncommitted event. He launched two towering home runs over the high right field fence on a relatively low effort swing. He looked compact and very under control from the left side. Touron also hit from the right side, and while not quite as smooth or prolific with the long ball, he did hit one to the opposite field off the right center field fence. This is a strong, power bat from both sides.

Elijah White (2013 SS/3B/2B/RHP Kennesaw, GA) produced hard line drives to his pull side on most of his BP swings. He hits from an upright position, and gets a little pull happy, but there’s some definite present bat speed to work with.

Kyle Wilson (2013 OF Hickory Creek, TX) is a strong, athletic right-handed hitter. He showed some good lift, has some effort to his swing, and hits off his back leg. There’s more power on the  way from Wilson.

Miguel Angel Riestra Rivera (FA SS/RHP Caguas, PR) has shown legitimate two-way potential this week and displayed his ability on the mound on Sunday. He touched 86 mph, working steadily at 82-85. He has a strong, athletic frame and there is probably more velocity to come.

James "Jae" Skoda (2013 OF/RHP Grand Bay, AL) was clearly the arm to watch of the day. After showing upside as a position player, Skoda showed off a fastball on the mound that topped out at 91 mph. He worked steadily around 87-90 and flashed a sharp downer curveball. There is more velocity and potential to come with Skoda.

Jake Carr (2013 OF Greenville, SC) made an impression with his arm from the outfield and that's not an easy thing to do. He stopped a runner looking to advance from first to third in his tracks with a a perfect on-line throw with plenty on it. Carr also had some quality game swings and made some solid contact.

Kevin Cruz-Sanabria (2013 1B Haines City, FL) provided the swing of the day in the the Uncommitted. He took a high fastball and turned it around for a long home run to left field. He's a strong hitter with impressive lift in his swing.

Zach Elder (2013 OF/RHP Carver, MN) reached 82 mph on the mound on Sunday, but his standout performance was with the bat. He picked up two line drive hits on Sunday, including one that registered at 90 mph off the bat. He showed good plate coverage and stayed inside the ball well.

 
1/5/2013 10:24:54 PM

Ivan Rodriguez (2013, Gurabo, PR) Had the hot stick for the Kelly Green team today going 3-4 with a stolen base.  Ivan showed great athleticism and was aggressive on the bases.

Kevin Garner (2013, Little Rock, AR) added a triple and a single as well going 2-3.  Garner barreled up both hits well, making hard contact.

Elijah White (2013, Kennesaw, GA) Also went 2-3 on the day having a single and a double.  Showing consistant contact with a good approach. Elijah also got it done on the mound running his fastball up to 86mph with some arm side run and a curveball to go with it sitting at 76mph. White has a projectable arm. 

Angelo Rivera (2013, San Sebastian, PR) Had his fast ball at 85mph for the Crimson team, With an 11/5 curveball at 73mph. Rivera showed good balance on the mound. 

William Griffin (2013, Kennesaw, GA) Held the top velocity of the game with his fastball up to 89mph and his sharp curveball at 76mph.  Griffin also added a change with run sitting at 79mph.  The ball comes out of Griffin's hand well and he also showed good balance and feel for his fastball.

Noel Rosario (2013 MIF Camden, NJ) was the offensive standout of this game. Not only did he run down the first base line in 4.18 seconds from the right side, but he also drove two sharply hit singles. One of those singles was an opposite field rocket into right on a tough pitch over the outside corner.

Michael Chontos (2013 RHP Egg Harbor Township, NJ) reached 81 mph with his fastball and showed a long arm action. His 68-70 mph curveball also flashed good depth and location.

Troy Sieber (2013 3B/1B Salem, NJ) did not pick up a hit in this game, but squared some balls up well. His swing path is impressive and it looks like the hits will come for him. His approach also stood out.

Michael Avila (2013 1B Miami, FL) showed some serious strength earlier in the day in BP, driving some balls out to the gaps and off the fence. In game action, he showed flashes of that again, contributing a single in the box score. 
1/5/2013 10:03:46 PM

Luis Touron (2013 OF Miami, FL) had perhaps the best batting practice performance of the World Uncommitted hitters on Saturday, putting two balls well over the right field fence from the left side. He didn't disappoint in game action either, hitting a booming double to straight away center field, showing off impressive strength and carry. Touron also was impressive from the right side of the plate.

Matthew Vaccaro (2013 RHP Marietta, GA) worked at 81-84 mph with his fastball in this game, but what stood out was his lively two-seam action. He was able to induce some weak swings just by pounding the strike zone. Vaccaro also has some projection and should have more velocity on the way.

Spencer Phillips ( 2013 OF/RHP Palm Bay, FL) is a primary position player and picked up two hits on Saturday, but he was even more impressive on the mound. He touched 84 mph and showed some good life on his fastball. His tight, late breaking curveball at 68-72 mph also proved to be weapon.

Austin Irwin (2013 RHP Escondido, CA) was not overpowering, working at 76-79 mph with his fastball, but he spotted well and missed some bats with his 68-70 breaking ball. He also repeated his delivery well.
