Houston Kyle Chapman RHP Jameson Taillon (2010, The Woodlands HS, TX), the nation's 2nd-ranked prospect, was impressive Tuesday night in a 5-2 victory over the Orioles Scout Team. Taillon sat at 92-95 with his fastball and showing a good feel for his off-speed stuff. Taillon wasn't the only big arm though for Kyle Chapman as RHP Stefan Crichton (2010, Cinco Ranch HS, TX) and RHP John Simms (2010, The Woodlands HS, TX) both looked and touched 89 and 91 respectively.
MIF Tyler Green (2010, Brazoswood HS, TX) is known for being able to run his fastball into the low 90's, but it was his bat that stuck out on Tuesday night. Green is the three-hole hitter for Kyle Chapman and hit a homerun in the first inning and finished with 3 RBIs.
Orioles Scout Team SS Nick Poulos (2010, Douglas Freeman HS, VA) swung it well going 2-3 with 2 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He had a two-run single off Jameson Taillon in the 3rd inning. RHP Owen Beightol (2010, Deep Run HS, VA) was sharp in two relief innings, striking out 5 batters and allowing only 1 hit. Beightol showed a good feel for pitching and sat at 84-87 with his fastball.
