2007 Top Prospects

Michael Main  - RHP - 2007 - Deltona, FL - USA
Main is the #1 prospect overall in the 2007 class based on his pitching ability, but he still showed his athleticism despite not throwing from the mound. He ran 6.62 and hit with power. He’s filling out his 6-2 frame well.

Jason Heyward  - OF - 2007 - McDonough, GA - USA
Heyward took his game to the next level in Fort Myers, showing tremendous power and hitting skills both in BP and in games. His improved aggressiveness was key. Heyward is a tools player as well, with sub 7.00 speed and a 90 mph arm at 6-5, 220.

John Tolisano  - SS - 2007 - Sanibel, FL - USA
The jury is still out on what position Tolisano will play at the next level. The jury is much more in agreement on him as a hitter; he’s one of the best in the country from both the right and left side of the plate.

Justin Jackson  - SS - 2007 - Asheville, NC - USA
There is no smoother and more advanced defensive infielder in the country than Jackson. He can do everything in the field. At 6-2, 170 lbs, Jackson projects with the bat, too. He has bat speed and a swing that should develop power.

Steven Brooks  - OF - 2007 - Wyckoff, NJ - USA
The 6-0, 175 lb Brooks would be a top prospect with average speed, but when he can run 6.41, that puts a player at a different level. No player improved his overall stock more at the showcase than this New Jersey 5-tool outfielder.

Yoandy Barroso  - OF - 2007 - Miami, FL - USA
We had never seen of Barroso before but after he threw 93 mph in OF drills we paid close attention. He showed plus bat speed at the plate and does everything easily and athletically.

D.J. Jones  - OF - 2007 - Gulf Shores, AL - USA
It’s not often a junior lefthander throws 87 off the mound and that’s an afterthought. Jones has some of the best bat speed in the 2007 class and is a 6.69 runner, too.

Garrett Nash  - SS - 2007 - Draper, UT - USA
Nash (6.48) was edged by Brooks as the fastest player at the showcase, but the rest of his tools play high. He drives the ball hard from both sides and is an extra base/stolen base threat offensively.

Tanner Robles  - LHP - 2007 - Murray, UT - USA
Robles has a pro profile body at 6-3, 190 lbs and top level athleticism. He threw 86-88 mph with a nice curveball/change up combination and should continue to improve with physical maturity.

Nathan Striz  - RHP - 2007 - Lakeland, FL - USA
Stirz has firmed his body up to a solid 6-4, 215 lbs and has a workhorse approach on the mound. He threw an easy 90 mph in Fort Myers and we’ve seen him at 93-94 mph before.

Logan Williams  - SS - 2007 - Damascus, AR - USA
Williams will could move to third base at the next level but his bat will play anywhere. He has a quick stroke that combines power and bat head skills and drives the ball hard to all fields. Outstanding arm!

Zach Jones  - C - 2007 - Draper, UT - USA
Jones is slender at 5-11, 165 lbs but has excellent quickness in all his actions. He’s one of the best defensive catchers in the 2007 class and shows surprising bat speed and gap to gap present power.

D.J. Swatscheno  - LHP - 2007 - Pembroke Pines, FL - USA
Swatscheno just looks like an uncomfortable at bat for a hitter. He throws 88 mph from a deceptive delivery with excellent life. His mid-70’s curveball is a hammer with tight downer break.

Jon Luke Jacobs  - RHP - 2007 - Gainestown, AL - USA
Although Jacobs is 6-0, 170 lbs, he has a big time arm. He has a power pitcher's delivery and arm action and throws a heavy 90 mph fastball with minimal effort. Jacob's slider is a potential plus pitch with very sharp biting action.

Remington Wilson  - C - 2007 - Sandy, UT - USA
Utah features two national level catchers in the 2007 class in Wilson and Jones. Wilson is biggerer at 6-0, 185 lbs, has more power potential and is almost as advanced defensively as Jones.

Timothy Ferguson  - MIF - 2007 - Beaumont, TX - USA
Ferguson showed bat speed and power potential at a whole new level than we’ve seen before. He’s always been a smooth fielding middle infielder with improving speed (6.8) but his bat moves him to a different prospect level.

AJ Regoli  - OF - 2007 - Lake Worth, FL - USA
Regoli doesn’t have one superior tool but he does everything at a very high prospect level. He has advanced skills both offensively and defensively, especially with his overall hitting approach and his arm strength.

Mike McGee  - SS - 2007 - Port St. Lucie, FL - USA
McGee profiles best as a shortstop, with sub 7.00 speed, good defensive actions and solid hitting skills, but he also throws 90 mph off the mound and has a good idea how to pitch. Top 2-way prospect.

Weston Gilmer  - SS - 2007 - Pinson, AL - USA
The 6-1, 190 lb Gilmer is also a position prospect, but he showed top level pitching tools in Fort Myers. His fastball was steady 88-89 mph and very heavy and his curveball had sharp 12/6 bite at 72 mph.

Patrick Johnson  - RHP - 2007 - Conover, NC - USA
Johnson is still well short of 6-0 but his electric arm throws 90-91 mph easily with a power breaking ball. Johnson is an infield prospect who can run (6.85) and hit as well. Top two-way DI college prospect.

2008 Top Prospects

Hunter Cervenka  - LHP - 2008 - Baytown, TX - USA
Cervenka is an excellent athlete who would rank near the top of the 2008 list as an outfielder as well as a pitcher. He threw 89 mph from the mound with a power curveball and we’ve seen him throw harder.

J P Ramirez  - OF - 2008 - New Braunfels, TX - USA
Ramirez is one of the top pure hitters in the 2008 class. He has bat speed and centers everything hard from the left side. The power will come, too. Ramirez ran a (6.9) and throws (81 mph) easily across the infield

Tommy Winegardner  - SS - 2008 - St. Leonard, MD - USA
Winegardner has superior arm strength for his age, throwing 86 mph in both infield and from the mound. He has power in his bat from both sides of the plate, too.

Taylor Hightower  - C - 2008 - Cartersville, GA - USA
Hightower is a polished player with very good present strength for his age. He can catch and throw at a high level now. Offensively, he has gap to gap power and a very mature, patient approach.

Quinton Miller  - RHP - 2008 - Medford, NJ - USA
Miller has all the pitches now with a heavy 88 mph fastball, sharp 75 mph curveball and very advanced and deceptive change up. He should keep getting stronger and better with maturity.

Joey Belviso  - OF - 2008 - Pembroke Pines, FL - USA
Belviso is a potential 5-tool outfielder with pro level arm strength, good speed (6.9) and some serious juice in his bat. He’ll be a fun player to watch develop over the next few years.

Chase Davidson  - 1B - 2008 - Alpharetta, GA - USA
The 6-5 left handed hitting Davidson has huge present power and is only going to get stronger. He’s a very aggressive hitter who has very good loft and extension in his powerful swing.

Brian Ellington  - RHP - 2008 - Gainesville , FL - USA
Ellington was one of the most projectable pitchers in Fort Myers with a 6-3, 170 lb frame and a low effort, easy arm action. He threw up to 86 mph with a very sharp 71 mph curveball.

George Bahadue  - RHP - 2008 - Miami, FL - USA
Bahadue’s fastball topped at 87 mph but had some of the best late life at the showcase and was a dominant pitch. He is also a strong athlete who can hit with power and play third base.

Tyler Pastornicky  - MIF - 2008 - Bradenton, FL - USA
Pastornicky has advanced defensive tools, including outstanding arm strength and soft hands. He’s a 6.92 runner who shows bat speed and solid contact ability at the plate. He’s the son of former ML infielder and current Royals scout Cliff Pastornicky.

Raiko Alfonso  - MIF - 2008 - Key West, FL - USA
Alfonso has it all but running speed, he is smooth as silk with a strong arm in the inf. He hits and projects to hit with power.

Gregory Conver  - RHP - 2008 - Margate, FL - USA
Conver is intimidating at close to 6-5 with a low ¾’s to sidearm release point. He throws 86-87 mph with excellent tailing action. Conver is a good athlete as well with power and running speed.

2009 Top Prospects

Cooper Moseley  - MIF - 2009 - Montgomery, AL - USA
The only present position/pitching tool Moseley didn’t show at a high prospect level was straight ahead running speed (7.39). He is an advanced hitter who can play shortstop, plus throw 86 mph off the mound with two quality breaking pitches

Brent Zimmerman  - SS - 2009 - Cooper City, FL - USA
Zimmerman throws an easy 85-86 mph from a high ¾’s arm slot, which gives his curveball great downward break as well. He’s just beginning to grow at 5-10, 155 lbs and he’s going to keep throwing harder the stronger he gets.

Matt Watson  - C - 2009 - Portland, ME - USA
Watson is a left handed hitting catcher who showed hitting ability and bat speed well beyond his years. He’s from Maine, as well. Watson’s defensive skills are solid and projectable.
