2008 Mid Atlantic Top Prospect Showcase
2009 Top Prospects
- 3B - 2009 - Mechanicsville, VA
It was very difficult to find a weakness in Jacob’s performance, as he absolutely dominated hitters with three potential average to above average MLB pitches. His fastball topped out at 88, but has been up to 90 earlier in the summer. What really stands out for Jacob is his very tight 12-6 curveball and his feel for a live change-up. His pitchability is very polished for his age and Jacob also is one of the top infielders in the country. He is verbally committed to Richmond, but could attract plenty of draft attention this coming spring.
Timothy Edward Butler
- RHP - 2009 - Chesapeake, VA
With a fastball that touched 90 and an arm that works well, Timothy has a lot to like on the mound. Everything works well in his clean delivery and his velocity projects well as he fills out his lean build. Timothy also features a tight slider and should be one of the top pitching prospects in the Mid-Atlantic Region this year.
- RHP - 2009 - Big Island, VA
At 6’5”, 190 lb., Brock is a physically imposing prospect on the mound and at the plate, where he shows big raw tools at both. He has a loose long loose arm action that produced a fastball up to 90 with a good downhill plane. Don’t be surprised to see Brock adding more velocity in the next year. Offensively, Brock shows very good bat speed and quick hands. Brock is verbally committed to Gardner Webb, but could attract some draft attention on the mound.
- RHP - 2009 - Jersey City, NJ
To say Fabian overmatched hitters would be an understatement as he flashed a fastball that touched 90 with good armside run. He really challenges hitters and shows a solid 11 to 5 curveball and good feel for a change-up. Fabian will be a player that should attract plenty of draft attention this coming spring.
- RHP - 2009 - Richmond, VA
A tall thick right-hander, Patrick showed a fastball that was up to 87 at the showcase, but has been up to 91 earlier in the summer. He has good pitchability with a fairly tight 11 to 5 curveball and command of all pitches. Patrick is verbally committed to Virginia Tech and will be a player to follow this spring.
- C - 2009 - League City, TX
One of the best looking hitters at the event, Ryan showed the bat speed and quick hands to project well at the plate. Behind the plate Ryan showed a very strong arm (81) and a quick release. (1.80) He is verbally committed to Angelina JC and should get plenty of chances to show off his skills in the talent-rich Greater Houston area this coming spring.
- OF - 2009 - Rockville, MD
A very athletic outfielder, Anthony has run as low as a 6.73 sixty in the past while also showing very good hitting tools to work with. He has quick hands and stays inside the ball well; driving one ball off the fence during a game. Anthony has the tools to be a highest-level college prospect down the road.
- RHP - 2009 - Midlothian, VA
A tall and athletic right-hander, Miles topped at 84 at the showcase, but has been higher in the past. He has a short compact arm action that works well and a good feel for changing speeds. Miles has verbally committed to VMI.
2010 Top Prospects
- C - 2010 - Jersey City, NJ
A 2010 catching prospect Eduardo took arguably the best batting practice of any player at the showcase. He shows very good bat speed and has good strength in his swing. Eduardo hit a homerun during batting practice, while hitting a ball off the fence during the game. Behind the plate Eduardo is a good athlete that shows off good raw arm strength. (78) Eduardo has all the tools to be a highest-level college prospect in the next few years.
