2010 Top Prospects

Brian Walker  - MIF - 2010 - Deerfield Beach, FL - USA
Walker is an aggressive hitter with very good bat speed and he has some power and juice in his bat for a 5-9 middle infielder. His defensive actions are smooth and confident. Walker has signed with Florida Gulf Coast University.

Yohan Nunez  - C - 2010 - Hialeah, FL - USA
Nunez is a solidly built 6-0 right handed hitting catcher with a smooth, powerful swing, good hitting rhythm and some power potential. He has quick athletic actions behind the plate and a easy, clean release.

Tyler Murphy  - RHP - 2010 - Hilliard, FL - USA
Murphy is a lean and strong 6-3 right hander with three solid pitches he commands well. His fastball topped out at 83 mph and he threw a sharp biting curveball that buckled some knees and had a nice feel for his change up.

Chris Casto  - LHP - 2010 - Olive Branch, MS - USA
Casto is an extra strong two-way prospect. On the mound he threw in the low 80’s with very good life and showed a very hard and sharp curveball. He has big power in his left handed bat at the plate. Casto has signed with Meridian CC in Mississippi.

Jhoan Oviel Falcon Gonzalez  - RHP - 2010 - Maple, ON - CAN
Falcon-Gonzalez is a very strongly built 5-11 two-way prospect who graded out higher on the mound. He threw up to 84 mph with a power mid 70’s curveball that was a plus pitch at times. He swings a good bat and profiles to third base in the future.

Jose Castellanos  - OF - 2010 - Bronx, NY - USA
Castellanos is an athletic looking outfielder from inner city New York with the makings of five solid tools. He’s a 7.00 runner with good bat speed at the plate and a strong, accurate throwing arm.

Robert DePaula  - LHP - 2010 - Islamorada, FL - USA
DePaula is a 6-3 southpaw who we’ve seen up to 84 mph in the past on his fastball; he also throws a big breaking curveball and nice sinking change up. He has an effortless delivery and plus command potential.

Daniel Whitecavage  - C - 2010 - Huntersville, NC - USA
Whitecavage’s best tools are on offense. He has a short and fast swing and the ball comes off his bat hard to all fields. He also threw 81 mph off the mound.

Jonathan Cole  - 1B - 2010 - Davie, FL - USA
Cole is a rare switch-hitting left handed thrower and shows good bat speed and power potential from both sides of the plate. He was quick and agile at first base and looked like he could play some outfield as well.

Dillon Popovich  - 1B - 2010 - Coral Springs , FL - USA
Popovich is a strong right handed hitter with bat speed and some lift in his swing. He showed his power with a game home run on Sunday. Popovich has signed with South Florida CC.

Jacob Portugal  - RHP - 2010 - Barrington, RI - USA
Portugal, the son of former ML pitcher Mark Portugal, has a big physical 6-4, 210 lb build and a live fastball that reached 83 mph.

Armando Vidal  - MIF - 2010 - Carolina, PR - USA
Vidal was the second fastest runner at the World Open showcase (6.86) and showed nice range and footwork defensively. He’s a right handed hitter with quick hands and some bat speed with a line drive approach to hitting.

Omar De la Cruz  - SS - 2010 - Gurabo, PR - USA
De la Cruz is a strongly build switch-hitter with a short and quick swing from both sides of the plate and solid bat speed. He profiles to third base at the next level.

Eric Barbieri  - OF - 2010 - Marlton, NJ - USA
Barbieri is an extra strong 6-2, 215 corner player with some serious juice in his bat. He’ll likely end up playing first base at the next level.

2012 Top Prospects

Brendan Long  - RHP - 2012 - Naples, FL - USA
The 6-2, 170 lb Long is only a sophomore but he threw up to 83 mph with a long, loose arm action that projects very well. He should throw very hard some day.
