Florida Underclass BP Highlights >>
LHP/OF Brice Armstead (2017/Katy, TX) is a talented pitcher who throws in the low 80's but has the swing to be a solid two-way prospect as a right handed hitter as well., with quick hands a sound line drive swing.

2B Brian Dillingham (2016/Bradenton, FL) showed quick hands and a high average approach in batting practice, then unleashed the barrel a bit in the games Saturday and showed impressive pop for his size.

3B Ubaldo Lopez (2017, Miramar, FL) has lots of strength for his age and that strength translates into nice power potential.

3B Michael Harkcom (2016/Debary, FL) is coached, we're told, by Dante Bichette and their hitting styles are more similar than Bichette and his noted son's.  Harkcom has lots of bat speed and lift in his swing and drove the ball to the middle of the field hard.

OF Juan Francisco Teixeira (2016/Cooper City, FL) has a loose swing with bat speed and good left centerfield power with more to come.

1B Michael Blanco (2016/Miami Lakes, FL) took a few swings to get going but the 6-foot-4, 190 pound right handed hitter quickly started showing his power, with even more to come when he learns to hit taller and use his lower half effectively.

C Mason Doolittle (2017/Jupiter, FL) has a loose and very projectable 6-foot-3, 175 pound build and does a very good job at present of exploding his hands to the ball and driving it.  Watch out when he gets stronger.

C Michael Rothenberg (2017/Boca Raton, FL) is a switch hitter but we liked his strong and compact right handed swing more today.

OF Giovon Soto (2016/Miami, FL) has a nice simple swing approach with loose fast hands and a calm but strong approach.

3B Collier Rutledge (2016/Bradenton, FL) is 6-foot-2, 185 pounds and has lots of strength and leverage in his right handed swing.

SS Paul Benitez (2016/Orlando, FL) has very quick hands with a short, fast swing that produced lots of gap power.  He projects very well physically.

Florida Top Batting Practice Highlights >>
1B/3B Joe Genord (Lake Worth, FL) was a late add-on to the event but made his mark immediately, absolutely crushing the ball in batting practice with an aggressive right hand swing that showed outstanding bat speed.  The South Florida commit hits like he's angry with the baseball.

1B Michael Diaz (Lake Wales, FL) has a nice short left handed swing for a 6-foot-3, 175 projectable athlete with some present bat speed and more to come.  It's a high average approach now with some power down the road possible with adjustments.

C Carlos Pino (Miami, FL) has a strong prototypical catcher's build but a loose swing with an efficient shift and lots of present bat speed and power potential.

RHP Chase Evans (Jacksonville, FL) has a commitment to Florida Gulf Coast to pitch but might find some at bats at the college level with his strength and hard swing.

SS Jake Frasca (Darien, CT) came as far as anyone at the event (despite their being a PG Northeast Showcase this weekend) and took a very solid BP, showing gap power from a tall, narrow stance with lots of hard mid-field line drives.

C Emmanuel Bejerano (Palm Springs, FL), has a limited stride and shift but has a loose swing with good bat speed and made hard pull top spin contact.  A bit of shift and lower half use could really unlock some power.

OF Chris Matthias (Merritt Island, FL) has a short right handed swing and good present strength on his 6-foot-1, 190 pound frame.  The ball carried very well when squared.

C Trent Herzog (Pembroke Pines, FL) is a very strongly build catcher with a low hand set swing and very simple mechanics.  That resulted in very consistent hard pull contact with good lift for future power.
