Evan Chambers is a 2007 right hand hitting outfielder from Lakeland HS, residing in Lakeland, FL. Chambers has a thick, very strong, compact body. His 5'11" 205 lb. frame looks like the body you would find in a football backfield. However, Chambers is in the right sport. He can hit and play the game and was ranked #53 among PG National Top 100 position players. A week later in Joplin he was one of the hitting stars of that tournament and looked like he just used the opportunity to face all the big time arms at PG National as a tune-up for the Tournament of Stars. Chambers has a short power stroke and the ball jumps off his bat. He consistently makes hard barrel contact and though he is not pretty, his instinct to hit is very good. He is aggressive but under control and showed that he has plus hand/eye coordination at the plate. He can get to a good fastball in any part of the zone and can handle mid-90s velocity. Chambers has very strong hands and fires them easily. He is capable of hitting for big power numbers and high average and is a tough one to pitch too because he is not picky. In the outfield he showed that he has a strong arm that carries well. He is a good left fielder and could also be seen as a quality right or centerfielder. He ran 4.34 home/1st and posted a laser timed 6.74 60. Chambers is not the body type that usually gets scouts excited because there isn't the opportunity for real positive future projection, but they are not going to be able to ignore his bat. He is a legitimate professional prospect and if he were to end up in college, it is very scary to consider him with an aluminum bat in his hands for three years.
