The chance to have a middle-of-the-order LH bat at a premium defensive position puts Marcelo in the 1-1 conversation for the 2021 MLB Draft.

Big LH power from an easy, accurate swing are the hallmarks of James, one of the top players in the 2021 class. His 6'6" frame is an intimidating presence in the box, and despite the long levers he keeps his swing short and quick with the ability to handle velocity and drive it to all fields. James is an excellent athlete with a slow heartbeat in the box - the situation is never too big for him. Defensively, he covers a lot of ground in the OF and is instinctual enough that he may be able to stick in CF. If not, he still has an impact bat and will offer excellent defense at either corner spot.

His 3/4 arm slot gets lots of tail and sink to his heavy fastball allowing him to dominate lineups with just that pitch. He complements the big fastball with a hard slider that has the late 3/4 tilt you would expect and a developing change. Chase is a true power arm, one of the top pitching prospects in the class.

Scouting Report

Benny has about as loud a set of tools as you will ever see in a high school player. His wiry strong 6'4", 190-pound frame is quick-twitch throughout. For us, he ran a 6.45 in the 60, recorded an exit velocity of 102 mph and flashed raw arm strength of 96. At the plate the ball just comes off of Benny's bat differently - it's loud and continues to carry...even seems to rise at times. He whistles the bat through the zone and the power is legitimate now, with even more to come as he continues to fill out. Defensively, he covers a ton of ground in the OF and can play all three spots thanks to his range and arm. The upside here is immense and Benny has an excellent personality to go with his on the field skills.

There's a lot to like about Izaac thanks to a 6'4" strong frame and plenty of tools. His calling card is light tower left-handed power, and he generates the bat speed and loft that you would expect from his results. We've seen mid 90s exit velocities from him to go along with 99 mph arm strength and impressive foot speed (6.65 in the 60).

Chase is a power arm who recorded the highest velocity in Baseball Factory history at 101 mph! He gets downhill plane to all of his offerings and mixes in both a curve and cutter/slider along with a change.

His hands are strong and they show the ability to both adjust the barrel and deliver it on time. He generates very good bat speed accelerating through the zone and resulting in some jump off the bat (95 mph exit velocity). In the OF James has confident actions and reads balls off the bat well, His 6.76 speed helps him to close on balls and gives him the versatility (along with his arm strength) to play all 3 OF spots.
