2002 Underclassmen Showcase






2003 Top Prospects

Scott Maine - LHP - 2003 - Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Maine is a tall and slender pitcher with a projectable build. He has a low ¾ arm slot that produced good movement on all of his pitches. He threw his fastball in the upper 80's topping out at 90 mph. His curveball was sharp, his slider at times was a plus pitch and his change-up had sink. It is quite a selection of pitches. He is one of the top lefties in his class.

Sean Watson - RHP - 2003 - Miami, FL
Watson is a RHP from Miami that we have seen several times in the past. In Ft Myers he looked the sharpest we've seen him. He threw at 88 mph consistently and topped out at 90 from a high ¾ slot with good life. He also showed an effective drop-down fastball and hit all his spots. But his best pitch was a knuckle-curve and it danced around the bats. His K-curve and change-up both sat in the 76-79 mph range and his arm was working easier than a year ago. He is one of the top right-handers in his class and still improving.

Sean Rodriguez - SS - 2003 - Miami, FL
Rodriguez is a gifted player with smooth infield actions at SS and a plus arm that registered 92 mph across the diamond. He displayed excellent hitting ability, with power and the potential is there for even more. He ran a 7.2 and also played well in the OF. With his outstanding baseball actions that feature good hands, instincts and a special arm, he could end up as a top catching prospect before he is finished with High School.

Mike Lynn - RHP - 2003 - Albuquerque, NM
This list is loaded with top pitching prospects, Lynn is definitely one of them. He showed some of the best mound presence that we have seen in his class. He is a smaller type power pitcher who acts like a leader and had results in Ft Myers to prove it. He had command of an 88-91 mph fastball, a hard-spinning 12-6 curve and a change-up with sink. It's an outstanding package coming from a tight, quick delivery. It was a dominant outing and Lynn showed us that he was there to compete and win.

Andy D'Alessio - 1B - 2003 - Naples, FL
Hitting is D'Alessio's forte. He happens to have one of the best swings and most powerful bats in the Junior (2003) class. He is a strong left-handed hitter who generated plus bat-speed and showed us plus hitting ability in Ft Myers. He can field his position at 3B and has a playable arm but his bat is unquestionably his best tool. He can hit the ball where it is pitched and has power to all fields.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia - C - 2003 - West Palm Beach, FL
Saltalamacchia has been to several Perfect Game events. We continue to see big league tools out of him. He popped 1.90 several times and is getting quicker. He showed power from both sides of the plate and hit consistently with a more balanced swing than even 1 week previous at the World showcase. His receiving skills are excellent and his arm strength is outstanding. His versatility is rare since he is playable at IF, OF and even threw 86-88 mph on the mound.

Chris Perez - RHP - 2003 - Holmes Beach, FL
Perez is a big powerful pitcher who uses his size to his advantage. He showed us a very nice and tension free working arm. He cruised in the upper 80's and reached back for a 90-92 mph fastball when he needed it. His fastball had late life and his curve had a good bite to it. He has good mechanics and his easy arm could be the key to maintaining the consistent velocity he showed us. He does more than just throw hard and we expect that he will only get better.

Nolan Mulligan - RHP - 2003 - Hollywood, FL
Mulligan is a tall, lean pitcher who throws from an over the top arm slot and had an upper 80's fastball that topped out at 89 mph in Ft Myers, and we've seen 90 from him before. He had a good 12-6 curve but his liveliest pitch was a change-up and that might be his best. He showed us a tension free arm and low effort delivery.

Tony Portugal - RHP - 2003 - Fort Lauderdale, FL
Portugal is a good strong-bodied pitcher with a fast arm and excellent command of his fastball. We did not see any off-speed pitches from him but maybe because he was super effective with his 87-90 mph fastball. He threw it for strikes and scouts agreed that he had the liveliest fastball in the underclassmen showcase.

Cody Campbell - RHP - 2003 - Trabuco Canyon, CA
Campbell is a strong right-hander with a solid body and fast arm. He showed a 90 mph fastball and a workable curve and change-up. His fastball was his best pitch showing good life and was very consistent maintaining 88-90 mph most of the time. He had a good approach and was able throw inside on batters effectively.

Vince Pestano - RHP - 2003 - Anaheim Hills, CA
Pestano was impressive in Ft Myers. He pitches with a strong lower half and had a good approach on the hill. He threw his fastball and change-up for strikes and showed a potential plus curveball. His fastball had 86-88 mph velocity and topped out at 90mph. Coming from a ¾ arm slot his ball is lively. His delivery was well-balanced and his arm worked easy. We like the way he pitched ahead.

Dylan Gonzalez - RHP - 2003 - Weston, FL
As a 2-way switch-hitting prospect, Gonzalez did several things well. He showed a nice looking left-handed swing and good defensive infield ability. He is growing into a pro body and his arm strength has blossomed into a special tool both in the field and on the mound. Pitching, he had an 86-88 mph fastball that touched 89. His change-up is a potential plus pitch. When his curve was tight and he got on top, it is a good 3-pitch arsenal. With the good command he showed in Ft Myers, he looked like a top prospect.

Darin Downs - LHP - 2003 - Boynton Beach, FL
Downs is a smooth working Lefty pitcher who has a free and easy working arm. He had command of everything he threw. He comes from ¾ and varies that look at times. He had 85-87 mph velocity and we have seen him even better. Command with a live fastball, a plus change-up with sink and a curve that came out of his hand like his fastball was too much for batters. He can really get outs. He is very projectable, he might not be too far away from the 90s.

Manuel Ferrer - SS - 2003 - Tampa, VE
Ferrer has good tools all around. He ran a laser timed 6.79, had nice smooth and quick infield actions and threw 84 mph across the infield. He has some hitting ability with a quick-to-the ball swing and even flashed good gap power. We like the way he has begun to fill out and he projects to throw harder and add power with his growth and development. Keep an eye on this SS.

Ryan Ward - RHP - 2003 - San Bruno, CA
Ward is an interesting player that has many good pitching attributes on his side. He has a tall and lean pitchers frame with long legs and showed us good mechanics on the mound. We liked the way his arm worked with a tension free low ¾ arm action in a low effort delivery. He also had an excellent curve ball and his low angle arm whip produced a lively fastball that sat in the 84-86 mph range topping out at 88. He is a projectable pitcher that has a big future on the hill.

Steven Porter - LHP - 2003 - Ocoee, FL
Porter is a left-handed pitcher with a lot of ability and potential as a pro prospect. His arm is fast and it worked good from the higher than ¾ angle he comes from. He threw downhill with good action on a consistent 86-87 mph fastball and showed us a hard 80 mph slider that was a plus pitch at times. He also had a good change-up and threw it for strikes the only 2 times he was behind in the count. He located all of his pitches well and threw a lot of strikes.

Jacob Stevens - LHP - 2003 - Cape Coral, FL
Stevens is a big Lefty that was able throw an 85-88 mph fastball away from batters while working in two other pitches. He showed us a hard 4 seamer and running 2 seamer as he worked the corners, mostly away. He has a long torso and strong lower half that generate good power. He used a 72 mph curve sparingly and showed good arm speed with his change-up.

Robert Scott Leffler - C - 2003 - St. Petersburg, FL
As the top catch and throw receiver in the underclassmen showcase, Leffler showed us some of the best pop times in his class. He was quick behind the plate, had a fast but controlled transfer and showed mid 80's velocity on his throw to 2B. He popped a 1.87 twice with good straight carry to the bag. He also swung the bat with some authority and flashed good hitting ability. He has a good body and looks like there is power potential in his bat.

Ty Taborelli - OF - 2003 - Tampa, FL
Taborelli has a lean athletic build and good tools. He ran a 6.71 in the 60, showed us a playable OF arm and can swing the bat. He produced hard line drives consistently with an easy, level left-handed swing and had some power with wood. The ball came off his bat fast and had good backspin. He is a projectable prospect that has big-time power potential.

Justin Valdes - RHP - 2003 - Tampa, FL
Valdes showed us some good pitching potential that featured a plus change-up. It was the kind of change-up that opens your eyes and says swing. It was effective because he had a quick arm action, showed sinking life and had command of it. His 85-87 mph fastball was more than adequate in setting up batters for it. He also showed a curve that broke hard at times.

C.J. Bressoud - C - 2003 - Kennesaw, GA
Bressoud is a 2-way prospect who showed good catching ability, popped a 1.90 in the skills and flashed power with his bat. He showed good footwork, can run well for a catcher and even threw a lively 87 mph fastball on the mound. He has a good body and should hit at the next level. This is a player we need to see more of. Look for him to move up the charts.

Russ Warthen - RHP - 2003 - Las Vegas, NV
Warthen showed good stuff on the mound. He cruised in the mid 80's and topped out at 88mph. His fastball had good tailing action and he also threw an effective cutter. He showed a plus curve at times and mixed both pitches well.

Cheyne Hann - RHP - 2003 - Santa Clara, CA
Hann is a very tall pitcher with a good working arm action. He is projectable but that doesn't mean he didn't produce in Ft Myers. He showed a consistent 84-86 mph fastball with good life and a tight curve with a variable arm angle. He could end up throwing in the 90's soon.

Braedyn Pruitt - 3B - 2003 - W. Palm Beach, FL
Pruitt is a left-handed hitter with a good approach at the plate and a quick swing. He showed the ability to hit out in front of the plate with driving power to opposite field. He played very well at 3B showing good body control and smooth actions. His arm looked strong, was accurate and it was the best we've seen him defensively. Great athletic baseball body.

Trent Hill - RHP - 2003 - Jasper, AL
Trent is a good young player that showed solid fielding ability and arm strength at 84 mph across the infield. He has a big body, showed strength with his swing. We liked him particularly on the mound where he has potential as a pitcher. He has a fast arm, topped out at 88 mph and threw a good curve and change-up for strikes.
