Preston showcases one of the most sought-after tools available - left-handed power. In batting practice, he showed rhythm in his bat waggle load and the ability to find the barrel. His stroke had leverage pull power and he lofted several balls off the net high above the right field wall. He has the rare type of power that he can slightly mis-hit a ball and it can still carry out of the park. As a defender, Preston reacts well and takes solid angles to the ball. His 6.86 speed in the 60 and 85 mph arm strength came into play allowing him to close on balls and throw to all bases with carry. Overall, this USC commit has the type of LH power that can change games with one swing of the bat.

  • Height 6'1
  • Weight 184
  • Bats Right
  • Throws Right
Scouting Report

Henry is one of the top defensive catchers in the country with the kind of arm strength that is a true "wow" factor. The feet worked well to throw while the exchange and release were very quick. The plus arm strength played in workouts and live game action with on line carry and consistent accuracy. Times were as low as 1.78 and stayed in the low 1.8s. Henry also showed a good feel for the game, received well and was more than willing to use his body to block balls in the dirt. Offensively, Henry generated good bat speed with an aggressive hack triggered by a leg kick. He showed barrel accuracy in BP with a mature approach that drove backspin line drives from gap-to-gap. Despite the outstanding physical tools what stood out most was Henry's energy on the field, passion for the game and leadership skills. This young prospect is a "baseball rat" with excellent make-up for the catching position. He has a bright future ahead of him in the game.

  • College Florida International

  • Position RHP 1B
  • Height 6'2''
  • Weight 220
  • Bats Right
  • Throws Right
Scouting Report

Physical 6'2"/220 2-way player as a RHP and 1B. On the mound, he has an under control delivery with a slight coil at the top that helps him hide the ball well. His fastball is very heavy with late running action. It is a very tough pitch to square up and results in lots of weak ground ball contact. His breaking ball complements the FB well with late 11-5 shape, and he throws it for strikes. As a position player, Angel has big leverage power from a simple stroke that was on display when he hit a HR at the Orioles complex in Sarasota that staff said was one of the longest they had ever seen. He also is very capable at 1B with sure hands and a good feel around the bag. It will be interesting to see Angel's ultimate spot.
