2010 Top Prospects

Colby Sims  - RHP - 2010 - Jacksonville, FL - USA
Sims was an easy choice as the top prospect, as the 6-2, 180 lb right hander threw a steady 88-90 mph from a sound delivery. His curveball has a tight hard spin and big bite in the low 70’s and Sims already shows the ability to pitch to spots and work the strike zone. He would have also been a likely top prospect list member solely as a hard hitting athletic third baseman.

Jake Watson  - SS - 2010 - Charlotte, NC - USA
Watson stood out as both the best defensive infielder at the event and the most well rounded hitter. His big time arm strength overshadows his smooth, balanced actions defensively and he has power in his left handed bat, especially to left centerfield.

Dylan Brown  - OF - 2010 - Clayton, NC - USA
Brown was the best outfielder at the event, with excellent range in centerfield and speed that seemed a few steps quicker than his 6.88 60 time. He has a high average approach at the plate and hits the ball hard to all fields with a short, quick swing.

Deuce Wright  - C - 2010 - Charlotte, NC - USA
Wright is a few minor adjustments from being a 1.80 type thrower and has good receiving skills. He’s also a switch-hitter who shows hitting potential from both sides of the plate.

Erik Ledna  - C - 2010 - Kennesaw, GA - USA
Ledna came into the showcase as a primary catcher and might have left as a primary pitcher. He threw a steady 84-86 mph on the mound with a big, hard downer curveball that was a knee buckler at time. He shows plus arm strength as a catcher but has a long release and only fair hitting ability.

Blake Berger  - C - 2010 - Jacksonville, FL - USA
Berger is a left handed hitter, always a valuable commodity among catchers and combines solid catching skills with some present bat speed and hitting ability. He has a loose, projectable body at 6-1, 170 lbs.

Zac Houck  - OF - 2010 - Orange Park, FL - USA
Houck combines very good speed (6.78) with a projectable 6-1, 165 lb build and good hitting skills. He’ll keep getting better as he gets stronger.

Stephen Vaughan  - RHP - 2010 - Carolina Beach, NC - USA
Vaughan throws up to 83 mph with simple, repeatable mechanics and easily projects to throw harder. He showed very good arm strength from the outfield and strong hitting and athletic tools as well.

2011 Top Prospects

Patrick Leonard  - SS - 2011 - St Johns, TX - USA
Leonard is a multiple position athlete with a very projectable 6-2, 185 lb frame. He could end up as a power hitting third baseman or right fielder as well as potentially on the mound, where he threw 84 mph with a hard downer curveball.

Grayson Atwood  - 3B - 2011 - Mt. Pleasant, NC - USA
Atwood passes the eye test at a very athletic looking 6-4, 195 lbs, impressive for a 15 year old. Atwood had very good arm strength both from the outfield and infield and we were surprised he didn’t pitch. His power potential will be fun to watch develop over the next couple of years.

Dillon Maples  - RHP - 2011 - West End, NC - USA
Maples is a two-way prospect with present bat speed and plus power potential, along with a fastball that touches 86 mph.

Seth Constable  - OF - 2011 - Lewisville, NC - USA
Constable was the fastest player at the showcase, running a 6.66 on a fairly slow track, then beating out a 2 hopper to third base at 4.10 from the right side. He has a strong upper body that enables him to generate some present bat speed.

Zac Freeman  - OF - 2011 - Lake Park, GA - USA
Freeman is a quick twitch athlete who showed his speed in the 60 (6.88) and on the bases. He is also a good looking young hitter with bat speed and good hitting fundamentals.

Tyler Alberts  - RHP - 2011 - Clemmons, NC - USA
Alberts stands out physically at 6-6, 190 lbs and showed his athletic ability during the games at first base and at the plate. On the mound, Alberts threw up to 85 mph from a sound delivery and a strong command of the strike zone.

Brandon Burris  - MIF - 2011 - Concord, NC - USA
Burris stood out defensively, with very balanced and smooth actions and a plus accurate arm, although he will likely end up at second base. He has a short, crisp line drive swing and an advanced idea how to hit.

2013 Top Prospects

Wood Myers  - MIF - 2013 - Chapel Hill, NC - USA
Myers, who is entering his 8th grade year, is probably the youngest player to be put on a Perfect Game top prospect list. He has very advanced baseball skills both offensively and defensively. Especially impressive was his left handed bat; he went 4-5 at the plate and his best swing ended up as his only out right in front of the RCF fence.
