Creates plane through the zone while remaining around the knees. Also landed a curveball with some sharpness for strikes.

Elliott Veenstra (2021 2B, Findlay, OH) Smooth hands defensively up the middle. Actions are clean and project well moving forward. Should be able to continue to patrol the middle of the field while increasing size and strength

Kyren Power (2020 1B, Plainfield, IN) Physical lefthanded pitcher throwing from a lower slot. Heavy fastball and filling the zone well with the pitch showing arm side run at 80 miles per hour. Also able to land a 67 mile per hour curveball for strikes. 

Red vs. White Game Highlights

2/17/2019

Jaden Henline (2020 RHP, New Cumberland, PA): Henline is a very long and lean righthander with a very fast arm, working up to 89 mph with his fastball and showing some serious deception to his delivery. Also did a good job throwing SL/CH combo for strikes. 

Derek Bolander (2020 RHP, Oregon, OH): A lithe, skinny junior; Bolander ran his fastball up to 84 mph from both a clean delivery and arm action, projecting well for future velocity as he puts some strength on his frame. He also shows a solid breaking ball with good depth, missing bats with it. 

Michael Stellrecht (2022 MIF, E.Amherst, NY): Stellrecht picked up a pair of base hits in this game, showing the willingness and ability to work the opposite way with authority, covering the plate well and not trying to do too much. 

Tyler Pettorini (2021 SS, Wooster, OH): Pettorini showed good hands and overall hitting mechanics in BP and continued to do so in this game, picking up a couple base knocks up the middle and continuing to show really good hands and barrel skills at the plate. 

Grant Reising (2021 LHP, Canton, MI): Reising, a highly-projectable lefthander, worked in the 78-82 mph with his fastball, creating good angle to the plate and really projecting well. He also missed bats with a big-breaking curveball. 

Brady Ginaven (2022 RHP, Munster, IN): Ginaven took a really good BP earlier in the day then got on the mound in this game and was also good, working up to 83 mph with his fastball with a clean arm and delivery, really extending well and throwing plenty of strikes with a quality changeup as well.

Great Lakes Indoor BP Highlights: Day 2

2/17/2019

Joseph Gallo (2020 1B, Niles, OH): Gallo took a really nice round on Sunday morning, consistently getting the barrel out with quality bat speed, squaring the ball up, and really driving it on a line with authority, consistently.

Kyren Power (2020 1B, Plainfield, IN): Power has excellent physicality and strength, and that strength shows up in his swing, where he showed significant lefthanded raw power with the ability to really drive the ball with authority. 

Brady Ginaven (2022 RHP, Munster, IN): Ginaven is seriously projectable physically, and he already shows good bat speed with some jump off the barrel, projecting for big time power as he continues gaining strength. 

Anthony Migliaccio (2021 C, Wyandotte, MI): A switch-hitter, Migliaccio showed big time hitting tools from both sides of the plate, especially lefthanded. He has significant bat speed and smooth, efficient stroke, capable of driving the ball with authority up both gaps consistently. 

Chris Gault (2021 SS, Laporte, IN): Gault showed really nice hitting tools with a simple, repeatable stroke, staying committed to the middle of the field and squaring up consistent liners.

Dylan Gamber
(2022 C, Mayfield Village, OH): Gamber has a smooth righthanded stroke to go along with quality bat speed, and he did a good job consistently finding the barrel on line, as well as showing some jump to the pull side. 

Bryce Carley (2020 OF, Catlettsburg, KY): Carley showed high-level hitting tools, with a compact and direct path to the ball and a smooth stroke, highlighted by really good bat speed and a quality, whole-field approach. 

Cody Sterkenburg (2019 C, Grand Rapids, MI): Sterkenburg has good physicality, and shows that strength in his swing. When on time, the ball jumps hard off the barrel and shows pretty quality raw pop into the gaps with carry and zip. 

Liam McMurray (2020 1B, North Tonawanda, NY): McMurray has a good bit of strength throughout his body, and that strength does a good job giving him raw power in his swing, where he showed the ability to make the dome look small to dead center field. 

Tyler Sorrentino (2021 OF, Roseland, NJ): Sorrentino has good athleticism and twitch to his game, and his swing is similarly twitchy and quick. He does an excellent job getting the barrel out on time and consistently found the barrel on a line to all fields. 

Tyler Pettorini (2021 SS, Wooster, OH): Pettorini showed off a smooth, balanced stroke with good bat speed and hands through the swing, and did a good job employing a whole-field approach, giving him really nice contact skills.
