2008 Top Prospects

LJ Hoes  - OF - 2008 - Mitchellville, MD - USA
A potential 5-tool player, Hoes features outstanding speed and arm strength in the outfield and can drive the ball to any part of the field. He is one of the top players in the class of 2008 and could go in the early rounds of the 2008 draft.

Tommy Winegardner  - SS - 2008 - St. Leonard, MD - USA
One of the top two-way players in his class, Winegardner shows outstanding infield tools while touching 88 mph on the mound. He is one of the top 2009 players in the country and could go early in the 2009 draft.

Steven Upchurch  - RHP - 2008 - Mobile, AL - USA
Topping at 88 mph on the mound with a lean projectable body, Upchurch could easily be throwing in the 90s in the near future. He has an ideal pitcher’s body and looks to have a very high ceiling on the mound. Steven is a potential early-to-mid round draft pick in 2008.

Chad O'Connor  - RHP - 2008 - Chesapeake, VA - USA
The most polished pitcher at the event by a long shot, O’Connor topped at 87 mph and showed good feel for a changeup and curveball.

Paul Devito  - LHP - 2008 - Annapolis, MD - USA
A tremendous two-way talent, Devito started the showcase with a dazzling performance in the outfield throwing 89 mph and running a 6.85 in the 60. Paul was also impressive on the mound, touching 85 with good polish. Devito is a highest-level Division I prospect.

Andrew Cadger  - OF - 2008 - Dunwoody, GA - USA
One of the top pure athletes at the event, Cadger ran a 6.75 60-yard dash and showed his impressive physical tools in the outfield. Cadger is also a top-notch football player in Georgia and should receive his share of attention from many high-level baseball schools.

Sander Beck  - MIF - 2008 - Millersville, MD - USA
Beck topped at 86 mph on the mound with a short, loose arm action and a sharp downer curve. He already looks the part of a college pitcher with a well-developed build, and will probably be up around 90 by the time he graduates.

Cody Bentley  - SS - 2008 - Pound, VA - USA
Bentley produced one of the top workouts of any player at the event, running a 6.94 in the 60 and throwing 88 from the outfield. With a fastball that tops at 85, Bentley could find himself playing several different positions. He projects to be a high Division I prospect.

Mac Williamson  - RHP - 2008 - Wake Forest, NC - USA
Williamson showed off several plus tools, including a cannon behind the plate (80 mph) and big power potential at the plate. He is a very projectable player that will be a highest level college prospect.

Hugh Adams  - RHP - 2008 - Bethesda, MD - USA
Adams has a great pitcher’s body and hit 85 mph easily on the mound. His fastball has very good run and sink action and he projects to add quite a bit of velocity with his 6-foot-4, 200-pound build.

Jason Patten  - RHP - 2008 - Davidsonville, MD - USA
Patten showed off a very quick arm at the showcase with a fastball that topped at 86 mph, along with a repeatable delivery. He ran a 7.05 in the 60 at the showcase and his athletic ability hints that there is more velocity left in him.

Scott Silverstein  - LHP - 2008 - Brookeville, MD - USA
Silverstein looks like a sure-fire, two way player at a highest-level college program in two years. On the mound, he is a polished lefthander who touches 84 mph and has a good feel for how to pitch. At the plate, he shows an easy swing that produces good bat speed and graded out high in batting practice.

2009 Top Prospects

Eric Buckland  - RHP - 2009 - Middletown, DE - USA
With a 6-foot-5, 200 pound frame, Buckland showed impressive physical tools in the outfield, throwing 88 mph with good range. He topped at 86 on the mound and has tremendous overall potential.

Kyle Gordon  - RHP - 2009 - Monroe, NC - USA
After an impressive performance at the 15-and-under WWBA summer championship in Marietta, Ga., Gordon again impressed at the Atlantic Coast underclass. He shows a fastball that tops at 85 mph with lots of life and a sharp 12-to-6 curve. With natural progression, Gordon should be a highest-level college prospect.

Blaze Tart  - RHP - 2009 - Durham, NC - USA
A talented two-way player, Tart has the tools to be a top-notch corner outfielder or starting pitcher. In the outfield, Tart runs well and can really swing the bat; on the mound, he tops at 84. Tart has the tools to be a highest-level college prospect.
