Scouting Report presented by Prep Baseball Report and Firecracker Baseball's College Advancement Staff

 
The Arms:
 
Dallas Lind (2019), a long, projectable 6-foot-1 lefty frame, with room to continue increasing velocity and sharpening an already impressive curveball.
 
Tyler Nielsen (2020), a lean 6-foot-2, should see more velocity as he develops physically. Already up to 79 mph with his fastball to go with an 11/5 curveball that needs to sharpen, but is likely to do so as he refines his secondary stuff.
 
Tyler Mudd (2020), a young lefty with a 76-78 mph fastball that features good arm side run. Throws two breaking ball (slider and curveball) both with good shape. His changeup has good action. Lots of polish considering his age.
 
Vincent Corso (2020), 5-foot-10 frame, athletic, already sitting 80-81 mph with his fastball. Sharp bite on curveball makes for a strong two-pitch mix at the present.
 
Ben Shpur (2018), a strong 6-foot-1 frame already filling out with a heavy fastball between 82-84 mph. 69-72 mph curveball with solid 11/5 shape.
 
Samuel Stone (2020), a lanky 6-foot-2 righty with a 77-79 mph fastball that bores in on righty hitters. Velocity should continue to climb. Curveball has slurvy shape but should become a swing-and-miss pitch as it tightens up.
 
 
The Bats:
 
Connor Hujsak (2020), already present gap-to-gap power that should continue growing, and the contact ability to make it play up in games.
 
Jordan Griffin (2019), first base profile but lots of juice in the bat. Consistently barrelled balls during batting practice, showing power to all fields.
 
Jack Kelleher (2018), middle infielder with quick bat, gap-to-gap power. Posted 87 mph exit velocity.
 
Conner DiAngelo (2018), lanky 6-foot-3 frame, compact left-handed swing, present gap power and solid hit tool.
 
Jared Reed (2019), a smaller frame but smooth, short stroke. Pull-to-middle approach with line drive swing, level bat path.

 

The Defenders
 
Jake Radziewicz (2018), strong arm from the chute, clocked at 75 mph with room for more. Good receiving skills to go with pop times in the low 2.00s.
 
Finn Westerink (2019), clean middle infield actions, developing arm strength but quick transfer and release helps it play up, should stick up the middle defensively.
 
Domenico DeLuca (2019), athletic outfielder with average foot speed, profiling best in right field with his strong throwing arm, up to 86 mph with accuracy on the throws.
 
Nicholas Gleason (2020), corner outfield profile with clean actions defensively. Strong outfield arm clocked at 83 mph, clean actions, put multiple throws on the bag during outfield drills.
