Logan McGuire  RHP - 2021 - ,   Cincinnati

Top 2021 pitcher at the event over the weekend was local product Logan McGuire. The Cincinnati commit has an ultra quick arm and the ability to run his fastball up to 89 mph. McGuire overpowered hitters during his outing on Sunday and although the command was not completely there, the projection of both the frame and overall stuff are intriguing.

Alex Johnson  C - 2021 - ,   

Johnson impressed mostly behind the plate with his overall arm strength and his ability to receive the baseball cleanly. That arm strength was taken into outfield drills as well where he topped out at 91 mph from his secondary position. At the plate Johnson used a downhill swing plane to work the baseball from gap to gap during his round of batting practice.

Cyle Phelan  LHP - 2021 - ,   

Phelan flashed the ability to mix pitch speeds as well as locate four pitches for strikes. His fastball topped out at 85 mph with late life while creating good angle when down in the strike zone. The uncommitted lefthander from North Carolina was very impressive on the mound and showed nice overall composure.

Coleman Willis  RHP - 2021 - ,   

Willis was another arm who put together an impressive outing on the mound. The tall and lean righthander maintained his velocity in the 82-85 mph range creating a steep downhill angle to the plate. The ball comes from a compact arm action as he hides the ball well in the back.


2022 Top Prospects

Yoel Tejeda Jr  1B - 2022 - ,   

One of the more projectable prospects of the entire event, Tejeda Jr. is a threat at the plate and is only going to improve as he gets stronger. The lefthanded hitter has a loose swing with the ability to work from gap to gap. He is only going to continue to develop physically and the pop as well as the overall swing path project very well.

Matt Little  C - 2022 - ,   

Little provided the most projectable catch and throw ability of any catcher in the 2022 class over the weekend. Traveling from California to Georgia, Little provided some of the quickest movements out of his crouch as well as clean transfer and low pop time (1.97 seconds).

Gavin Black  C - 2022 - ,   

Black has improved quickly over the course of the past year and on the mound his fastball reached as high as 82 mph with good command to either side of the plate.
