AJ Curtis (2015 CIF, Amador Valley HS, Pleasanton, CA)
provided the biggest offensive fireworks of the game. He went 3-for-3
with two doubles and two runs scored and he lit up the radar gun with
exit velocities of 93 and 95 mph on his doubles with power to both gaps,
He showed the best in-game power over the two game sample of the entire
80+ player showcase.
Right hander Bret De Guess (2015, Pleasanton, CA) matched the event's top velocity, running his fastball up to 86 mph. He features a quick arm that projects well with a smooth balanced delivery and a solid three pitch mix that included a sharp breaking sweeping breaking ball in the mid 70s and an upper 70s changeup with good fading action.
Right hander Kyle Mora (2015, Archbishop Mitty HS, San Jose, CA) racked up six strikeout as the starter for the Red team. Mora sat 81-85 with his fastball and released both of his offspeed pitches from the same slot, with a curveball up to 73 and a changeup up to 74.
Tim O'Daleigh (2016 OF/LHP, Arroyo HS, San Lorenzo, CA) had impressed throughout the showcase as an outfield prospect and he added value to his prospect profile by taking the mound as a secondary pitcher and sitting 80-84. It should come as no surprise given that his loose arm action was on display in the outfield but to see it translate so seamlessly with the ability to throw consistent strikes and work in an upper 60s curveball suggests he could be a two-way player at the college level. He retired all six batters he faced and struck out three in his two innings.
Kyle Cuellar (2015 OF/MIF, La Salle HS, Arcadia, CA) was another position player who had been making a strong impression with the bat and glove before showing that the arm translates to the mound as well. Cuellar topped out at 84 mph and struck out a pair while allowing no runs on two hits in two innings. More importantly he went 2-for-2 with a sac fly RBI and an RBI double and took his best swings against the higher velocity pitchers he faced.
Cole Goetz (2015 OF, Foothill HS, Dublin, CA) went 2-for-3 with a triple and scored two runs and showed a compact swing.
Connor Barrett (2015 RHP, Leigh HS, San Jose, CA) had a productive game, getting the start on the mound and running his fastball up to 80 mph and showed a clean stroke at the plate going 2-for-2.
William Harris (2015 OF, Wheat Ridge HS, Golden, CO) had a very impressive final at-bat of the showcase, crushing a ball into the oppo gap for a single and then promptly stealing second base. He also filled in on the mound and ran his fastball up to 80.
Mark Johnson (2015 OF/MIF, Jesse Bethel HS, Vallejo, CA) capped off his strong showing this weekend by going 2-for-2 with a triple and a stolen base.
George Chenart (2016 OF, American Canyon HS, Vallejo, CA) went 2-for-3 with an RBI double that came off the bat at 84 mph.
James Sfiligoj (2015 1B, Western HS, Cypress, CA) showed the ability to translate the available strength and leverage that his hulking frame offers by tearing into a couple of balls hard for a pair of hits.
Joeseph Salazar (2015 2B, Deer Valley HS, Antioch, CA) filled up the box score, going 3-for-3 with a run, an RBI and a stolen base.
