Matthew Paradise  - 3B - 2009 - San Clemente, CA - USA

Anthony Renda  - 3B - 2009 - Hillsborough, CA - USA
Exciting and somewhat explosive player who plays much bigger than his size; plus bat speed and an aggressive nature at the plate and in the field; built for success at the D1 level.

Haden Hinkle  - RHP - 2009 - Madera, CA - USA

Kristofer Ashby  - LHP - 2009 - Mesa, AZ - USA
Left-handed pitcher who really knows how to pitch. Mixes a low 80’s fastball with an excellent curveball. Has room to grow and add velocity.

Brock Simon  - RHP - 2009 - El Dorado Hills, CA - USA
More of a projection prospect at this point; has an easy, quick arm with a fastball that was steady at 84 mph, with movement on both sides of the plate; good changeup too.

Switch-hitting outfielder who shows bat speed from both sides of the plate. He is also athletic in the outfield and covers a lot of ground.
