2007 National Showcase  
Lucas Herbst is a 2008 OF/LHP with a 5'11'', 165 lb. frame from Monterey, CA who attends Monterey HS. He has a medium frame and a loose, slender build and a mature look to him. Herbst doesn't look especially athletic but he's deceptively quick and strong and plays above his speed and tools. He can really play centerfield and gets very good jumps on balls and runs precise routes. His throwing arm is accurate and he gets rid of the ball quickly. Offensively, Herbst has a quick line drive stroke and stays behind the ball with good balance at contact. He really shows the ability to handle the bat head and hit the ball hard to all fields and the ball comes off his bat with surprising authority. Herbst had the chance to hit off some high velocity pitchers in Cincinnati and had no problem turning on 92-93 mph fastballs and getting his hands through. He looks like a high average type hitter who's speed and baserunning ability might work best at the top of the order at the next level. Herbst is fun to watch because of his high energy approach to the game and the skills he brings to the field. He's a high performance player who should continue to surprise those who underestimate him. He has a verbal commitment to Santa Clara.
