LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2007 Midwest Top Prospect Showcase  
Marcus Knecht is a 2008 OF with a 6'1'', 180 lb. frame from Toronto, ON who attends St Michael's College School. He has a lean and well proportioned athletic build and some present strength. Knecht shows you all the basic physical tools you want to see in a top prospect. He ran the 60 in 6.76 and shows a very strong arm and makes accurate, on line throws. He'll be able to play the outfield at a high level physically. Offensively, Knecht doesn't have a textbook swing but he has very good bat speed and does a lot of things well. He starts from a spread, almost bow legged approach and takes a hard aggressive swing. He uses his hips well to help him generate bat speed. Knecht has stiff arms at contact and his swing looks long but it works for him. He has a very mature approach in terms of pitch selection and doesn't chase pitches and jumps on balls he can handle. His swing is on a line drive plane now and he showed consistent gap type power but he lofted a few over the fence in BP as well. He's a good all around talent who knows how to play and plays hard. Knecht is also a good student.
