16u BCS Scout Notes: Day 1

The offense for Elite Squad CF was certainly giving their best efforts today and a couple of prospects who showed some hard hit contact were Victor Martinez (2023, Orlando, Fla.) and Jason Torres (2022, Miami, Fla.). They put up a ten-spot in the first inning of their two games scheduled on the day and immediately showed their presence.

Martinez is a physical lefthanded hitter who does a good job at staying on top of the plate and covering the entire strike zone. He had a couple of knocks, including a single shot right back up the middle that fortunately didn’t strike the pitcher, and hit right in the middle of the lineup. There’s obvious impact and thump in the bat and as he begins to turn the barrel over and work with more authority and loft to the pull side, the rising sophomore should begin to see his power output tick upwards. Torres, a Miami commit, laced a couple of really well-struck baseballs on Saturday including an absolutely roped double down the pull side line. Torres is a super-physical prospect with a broad and well-strengthened frame that he uses to leverage due to his length and generate hard-hit contact to the pull side. It’s easy to envision him as a middle of the order power threat at the next level should he continue on his developmental trajectory.
