2019 Top Prospects

Hunter Jenkins  1B - 2019 - Maple Valley, WA   Uncommitted

The left handed hitting Jenkins was dominant offensively the entire weekend, picking up a home run, a pair of triples and a couple of singles. There is both bat speed and the ability to square the ball up to all fields in his game.

Ryan Escover  C - 2019 - Sammamish, WA   Uncommitted

Escover is a solid catching prospect with skills and tools on both sides of the ball but he may have a better future on the mound. He works downhill well on a fastball that reached 84 mph and had very good spin and depth on a low 70's curveball.

Javier Ramirez  RHP - 2019 - Bainbridge Island, WA   Uncommitted

Ramirez has a strong 6-2/200 build and a fastball that reached 85 mph with velocity that played up due to how well he hides the ball. A late diving change up was his best secondary pitch and he also threw a curveball.


2020 Top Prospects

Konnor Palmeira  1B - 2020 - Kahului, HI   Uncommitted

Palmeira is a very strong 6-0/220 athlete from Hawaii with some serious juice in his right handed bat. He hit two home runs to left centerfield in the games and added a couple of more hits for good measure.

Estevan Ruiz  OF - 2020 - Pasco, WA   Uncommitted

Ruiz is a right handed hitter with very good bat speed and a very loose and extended swing. He took the best batting practice of the event on Saturday and showed his other tools, including a strong outfield throwing arm and 7.29 speed, well.

Jay Sivadas  C - 2020 - Bellevue, WA   Uncommitted

Sivadas has the athleticism and arm strength stay behind the plate if he can add strength to his 5-11/150 frame. He squared up the ball very consistently to the middle of the field, especially to right centerfield.

Durham Sundberg  OF - 2020 - Gresham, OR   Uncommitted

You don't see many 8-3 double plays but Sundberg started two of them in games due to his quick jumps and accurate throws. The 6-3/180 right handed hitter also showed his power and bat speed, just missing a home run on Sunday.

Spencer Shipman  SS - 2020 - Newman Lake, WA   Uncommitted

Shipman had some of the best arm strength at the showcase, registering 88 mph during infield drills and working 84-87 mph off the mound. He has quick hands and good balance/lower half actions at shortstop and a strong chance to play there at the next level.

Brady Liddle  RHP - 2020 - Issaquah, WA   Uncommitted

Liddle has a loose and projectable 6-2/175 body and plenty of room to get stronger. He was up to 83 mph on his fastball with good heavy sinking life and got plenty of swing and miss on a 73 mph slider that had late biting action.

Nick Brink  RHP - 2020 - Portland, OR   Uncommitted

Brink is a good all around athlete with two-way talent and a projectable 6-1/180 build. He was up to 83 mph on the mound and showed a potent bat with some right handed power both in batting practice and in games.

Evan Jilbert  SS - 2020 - Auburn, WA   Uncommitted

Jilbert was the fastest player at the event with a 6.97 sixty and his bat speed reflected some of that athleticism and quick twitch as well. He profiles as a second baseman at the next level.

Kyle Reese  OF - 2020 - Sammamish, WA   Uncommitted

Reese is a primary outfielder with good defensive tools but the 6-2/150 right hander may have a brighter future on the mound. He was up to 83 mph with big downhill angle and lots of projection to go with a mid 70's slider.


2021 Top Prospects

Ayric Robinson  OF - 2021 - Meridian, ID   

Robinson is a high level athlete with plenty of baseball tools. He had some of the best right handed bat speed at the event, ran a 7.15 sixty and threw an event best 88 mph off the mound.

Kai Francis  RHP - 2021 - Bainbridge Island, WA   

Francis is a two-way prospect with a very projectable 6-2/170 build. He was up to 81 mph on the mound but is just scratching the surface of his potential there. He also has a strong right handed swing and squared up some balls with jump over the weekend.

Aiden Herrick  SS - 2021 - Olympia, WA   

Herrick is a primary middle infielder but he also worked out behind the plate and may have a better path to college baseball at that position.


2022 Top Prospects

Samuel Boyle  LHP - 2022 - Vancouver, WA   

Boyle is only a freshman but he had one of the best fastballs at the showcase, topping out at 82 mph to go with a curveball and changeup.

Ian Ritchie Jr  RHP - 2022 - Bainbridge Island, WA   

Ritchie is a young right handed pitcher who is already touching 80 mph with his fastball to go with a nice curveball. He's tall and projectable with a 6-1/160 build that is sure to add plenty of strength.
