Jonathan Merritt is a 2006 shortstop/right handed pitcher from Douglasville, GA with a small athletic build at 5-8, 160 lbs. He has very good first step quickness and deceiving strength for his size. Merritt ran the 60 in 6.79 and was as low as 4.27 down to first base. He can beat out ground balls and cause problems on the bases with his speed. Merritt played both shortstop and second base at the National. He has very good arm strength and can make the play going to his right at both positions. We've also seen Merritt throw in the upper 80's off the mound before. Merritt's quickness and arm strength are big plusses and he's the type of defender that makes tough plays. Offensively, Merritt has surprising bat speed and power. We've seen him leave the yard many times with wood and he's an aggressive hitter who's looking to drive the ball. Merritt's swing has got on the long side, especially in his take away, recently, but he has too much talent not to be a premier hitter at the next level. Overall, Merritt is a hard nosed player with very good tools and he can play. He's also a very good student and has signed with Birmingham Southern.
PG Grade 9.0

Merritt is a 5-8 pure shortstop from Georgia with a big game. We’ve seen him stand out at WWBA events for the past year and we found in Fort Myers that he shines at showcases just as well. Merritt ran the 60 in 6.95 and has very quick feet and quick actions defensively. He has the hands and actions to excel defensively at shortstop and we’ve seen in the past that he has a knack for the spectacular play. He threw 86 mph in infield drills and likes showing off his arm during games. He also throws 86-88 mph off the mound as a closer. Merritt is a right handed hitter with a very balanced approach, a rotational swing and very quick hands to the ball. He jumped on a mid-80’s fastball in the middle of the plate in the All-Prospect game and launched one over the left field fence that was a no doubter. He is also a 4.0 student. Merritt can play at any college program in the country and should be very highly recruited.
