2013 PG Underclass All American Games
2015 RHP ConnorMcCullom (Huntington Beach, CA) threw three scoreless innings as theCalifornia starter. He sat 82-86 with a 74 mph curveball and 78 mph changeup.The East team had the top velocities of the game, with 2015 MIF/RHP Andrew Noviello (Raynham, MA) touching89, while teammates 2015 RHP Zane Gill(Pensacola Beach, FL) and 2015 SS/RHP LTTolbert (Piedmont, SC) each topping out at 88.
2015 RHP Matt McGarry(Portolla Valley, CA) showed an impressive arm in his four innings of work,tying an event best for fastball velocity, hitting 90 mph repeatedly in hisfirst inning and settling in at 85-89 thereafter. He also show the ability toimpart spin on the ball, while he tended to get on the side of his curveballgiving it a slurvy shape at 74 mph, he spun it very well, which is somethingthat scouts put a significant emphasis on when projecting velocity. He alsoflashed big arm side fading life on his changeup (up to 81 mph). He struck outsix and walked three, while allowing just one hit in four scoreless innings ofwork.
2015 LHP KyleRobeniol (Alta Loma, CA) was very crisp in his first inning of work, spottingup his mid 80s fastball (84-86) to both sides of the plate for a couple ofpunchouts in the final inning of the game against the USA team. He would finishhis three innings of work with five strikeouts to just one walk. He showed anadvanced changeup at 76 mph and good depth on his sweeping curveball at 67.
2015 LHP BaileyFalter (Chino Hills, CA) showed a lot of upside on the mound. He has anideal frame for a young pitcher at 6-foot-4 175 pounds with a lot of room tofill. He doesn't yet take full advantage of the length his frame offers, optingfor a drop and drive delivery which allows him to control his lanky leversbetter than most pitchers with similar age/height profiles, but he has lessdownhill leverage than he could create by staying taller. But that is anadjustment that can be made down the road, right now Falter sits in the mid 80swith his fastball (84-86 against the National team) and paired it with a 70 mphcurveball, also flashing a 70 mph changeup.
2016 OF BlakeRutherford (Simi Valley, CA) didn't have great at-bats, yet thanks to hisnatural hand-eye coordination he managed to single three times in four ABs. Hisbat speed comes easy and he accelerates his hands well enough that even hisdefensive swings generate enough force to drive ball out of the infield. Givenhow much room his long slender athletic frame has to fill over the next fewyears, it seems likely that he could eventually develop impressive strength togo with the hand speed, which would be a very valuable combination. He alsoshowed off his speed by legging out an infield single, getting down the line in4.15 seconds.
2015 3B Brendon Davis(Lakewood, CA) showed the ability to drive the ball to the right side withauthority throughout the California Goldteam's two games. He started the day with a lineout to 2B that registered at 90mph off the bat. He would also single and drive a shot deep into the rightcenterfield gap for an RBI double (with a 4.65 turn time) as part of a 2-for-4day at the plate. Davis has shown a positive step forward in terms of his bat speed. While his is still a thinlybuilt athlete, he is beginning to generate enough bat speed to drive the ballfor gap power, and looks capable of continuing to develop that power as hematures. He was impressive defensively at 3B as well, while he takes his timeto wind up on his throws, he makes up for the release time with his velocityand carry.
2015 C DaltonBlumenfeld (Los Angeles, CA) had a solid showing in day one of his first PGshowcase. While he went hitless, he worked a pair of walks in his three plateappearances. The physically imposing backstop (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) didn't seea lot of quality pitches he could drive, but he wisely chose not to try toforce the issue and showed a willingness to take his walks. He also showed goodcatch and throw ability behind the plate, following up his workout pop time of1.90 with impressive in-game pop times of 1.99 and 2.03.
2015 MIF Keaton Weisz (Poway, CA), an Arizonacommit, went 2-for-3 with a single, double and a run scored. He is a smallathletic middle infielder who showed quick actions at second base and picks upspin on breaking balls well. He also showed solid speed, rounding first base onhis double in 4.49 seconds.
2015 OF Jordan Myrow(Sherman Oaks, CA) tantalizes with plus hand speed and the raw ingredients forpower to go with his all around athleticism. He squared the ball up once in hisfour plate apperances, hammering a hanging curveball for a two-run double inhis first at-bat of the day. He also showed symptoms of his raw power on apopup to third base in foul territory,which hung in the air for 5.97 seconds. Myrow has a lot of upside, withpotential for average or better tools across the board.
