Additional Notes From Baseball Factory Team One South Showcase
We’ve highlighted some of the pitching performances as well as some players that swung the bat well. Even more good things happened in Peachtree City, so here are some other notes from our scouts at the Under Armour Baseball Factory Team One South event:
Christopher Alleyne has some of the surest hands you will see…he plays low, moves well laterally and catches everything.
- Luke Ard has a pretty left-handed stroke and a solid all-fields approach.
- Logan Barker plays above his tools as evidenced by his 2 doubles and a walk in 5 plate appearances.
- Cole Barr is an extremely talented all-around SS. He has tools (6.62 runner, 92 arm strength, 89 exit velo) and uses them well in games. Especially advanced on the defensive side of the ball.
- Griff Bernardo plays with great energy and has an intriguing mix of tools – 6.8 runner with flashes of power. He hit an opposite field 2B to RCF in game play.
- 2018 OF Michael Brewer from IN is a prospect to follow closely. He has a quick RH stroke with power and is very athletic.
- Adisyn Coffey is a high level defender at SS. He has great hands and outstanding instincts – one of the few young players you will see who seem to be moving in the right direction before the ball is even hit.
- At 6’3”/195, Sam Faith stands out at the SS position. He went 2-4 in games with a BB and is a switch-hitter with upside.
- Jaddiel Feliciano is rather raw, but his LH bat delivers loud contact. He was 2-4 with a BB and one of his outs was a ball driven deep to RF.
A sleeper from GA is Austin Gardner. He’s physical with impressive measurable: ran a 6.60, 92 mph arm strength, 101 mph exit velocity. He has shown big power in the past.
- One of the most complete all-around players in attendance was 2017 IF Joab Gonzalez from PR. While not physically imposing, he has a clean and effective RH stroke with fluid defensive actions and louder tools than you would expect.
- Finding catching is difficult, so Jared Howell should turn some heads. He’s solidly built with a good arm strength/power combination.
- The highest exit velocity at the event was 103 mph and belonged to OF Ian Jenkins. He’s built like a linebacker, is athletic, and shows baseball skills that could take off in the near future.
- Ivan Johnson is an impressive switch-hitting prospect with good infield actions who is quick-twitch and has a high ceiling.
- Illinois 3B Gavin Lovesky took a solid BP showing a coordinated swing and good feel for the barrel.
Theo McDowell is an intriguing 2018 prospect. At 6’4”/170 there is plenty of room to fill out and he already is a sub-7 runner with a good LH stroke…and was up to 86 on the mound.
- Not only did Jake Molle go 4-for-5 in games, but he threw a 1.87 in workouts and has the durable frame you look for in a catcher.
- Brandon Moore is an intriguing athlete who ran a 6.49 in the 60 and registered a standing broad jump of 9’11”.
- At 6’3”/220 Cade Overstreet is a physical catcher who threw a 1.98 and swung with bat well with some pull side power.
- One of the most impressive players in the measurable testing phase of the workout was Andrew Papantonis. He ran 6.48 in the 60, threw 93 mph, had 96 mph exit velocity, jumped 9’6” in the broad jump and had 5-10-5 times of 4.20 and 4.38 – special athlete.
- Sam Praytor has serious arm strength behind the plate throwing a 1.81 accurately and on a line. He also has easy RH power and a strong frame built for catching.
- The fastest 60 time at the event belonged to Jaisen Randolph with a 6.29. He got to show it off a bit on a double down the RF line in game action.
- 2018 Tyler Ras from NJ is 6’3” and touched 87 on the mound. The switch-hitter also went 2-3 with a walk in game action.
One of most fluid infielders was Bryce Reagan, a 2018 grad from New Hampshire. The Virginia Tech commit seemed to make a quality play on every ball hit to him and displayed a quality stroke from both sides of the plate.
- Another 2018 who showed well was C Matthew Rivera. He was 1.97 to 2B, showed the ability to handle good pitching as a receiver and showed some pop to the pull side.
- Georgia Tech commit Oscar Serratos is an interesting prospect. He is fluid at SS, ran a 6.51 and showed 94 mph raw arm strength. He also got on the mound and touched 92 with a sharp breaking ball.
- Mark Vierling is a true baseball player with instincts for the game and tools to play SS at the next level.
- Two-way player Paxton Wallace is headed to Wichita State. He showed some RH power at the plate and a heavy upper 80s fastball as part of a 4-pitch mix on the mound.
- Drew Williamson is another 2018 that should be closely monitored. He has a pretty LH stroke with power and ran 6.85 in the 60 despite a 6’4”/195 frame.
Thanks to all of the talented players who were a part of this outstanding event.
