    National League

    Jordon Adell, OF & RHP

    Prospect, KY, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'3/185
    • High School: Ballard
    • College Commitment: University of Louisville

    Jordon was even more impressive in his second trip to the Under Armour All-America Game. He still showed his plus tools, but with more consistency and on a stronger frame. It's hard to determine what made the loudest statement during the event, Jordon's HR Derby shot high off his own picture on the Jumbo Tron screen, or the two missiles he hit during the game. Either way, the power, speed and arm strength are nearly at the top of the scale. Overall, this is a complete player who can impact the game in every way you can imagine and should be a very high draft pick next year.

  • Nick Allen - IF - #10

    Nick Allen, IF

    San Diego, CA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 5'9''/156
    • High School: Francis Parker
    • College Commitment: University of Southern California

    The most dynamic defender at the shortstop position that the high school ranks have seen in recent years, Nick is a pleasure to watch take ground balls. He has excellent instincts that go with great feet and hands to make all the plays on a consistent basis. He picks his hops, takes great angles, makes plays in all directions and has the internal clock allowing him to play at the correct pace at all times. His RH bat continues to develop as he shows good contact skills and the ability to handle velocity without issue. Overall, this is a premium defender at the SS position giving him a lot of value.

  • Cole Brannen - OF - #5

    National League

    Cole Brannen, OF

    Elko, GA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'0/170
    • High School: Westfield Schools
    • College Commitment: Georgia Southern

    Cole possesses the rare speed and power combination that is even more appealing since the power comes from the left side of the plate. Paired with the high level tool package is outstanding make-up that has helped him reach this level - and gives him the work ethic that should allow him to reach his full potential in the future. A premium athlete with the range to potentially play CF, his simple, quick stroke works well against velocity and he has the kind of unique tool set that is always in demand.

  • Tanner Burns - RHP - #9

    National League

    Tanner Burns, RHP

    Decatur, AL, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'1/205
    • High School: Decatur
    • College Commitment: Alabama University

    Tanner has a solid, proportioned frame that is both strong and athletic. His delivery is rhythmic and repeatable leading to a high volume of strikes with all of his offerings. His go-to pitch is a lively fastball that can touch the mid 90s and comes from a clean arm circle and a low-effort delivery. To go along with his fastball, Tanner throws a breaking ball with 2-plane break. It has good rotation and good depth leading to a high percentage of swing-and-miss results. Add to it a quality change that has good arm speed, and the 3-pitch mix is of starter quality.Even with the high level stuff, Tanner's biggest attributes may be found in his intangibles. He is an extremely hard worker with a high baseball IQ and he likes to compete on the mound.

  • Jack Conlon - RHP - #23

    National League

    Jack Conlon, RHP

    Sugar Land, TX, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'4/210
    • High School: Clements
    • College Commitment: Texas A&M

    The physical Conlon flashed his 3-pitch repertoire at the Under Armour All-America Game at Wrigley Field. His low 90s fastball showed good downhill plane and some life. His slider has 3/4 tilt with tight rotation, and it is a pitch that Jack has confidence throwing in any count. His third pitch, a straight change, also finishes off his arsenal and also shows promise. The pieces are in place for a solid starting pitcher profile.

  • Hans Crouse - RHP - #7
    Read Bio

    National League

    Hans Crouse, RHP

    Dana Point, CA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'5/185
    • High School: Dana Hills
    • College Commitment: University of Southern California

    Hans stands at a lean 6'5 tall with long levers and big confidence on the mound. He has a lightning-quick arm to go with his relaxed personality that shines through when he pitches. His delivery is slightly unorthodox and can change pitch-to-pitch (sometimes including a turn, hesitation and shoulder shimmy), but the arm speed, deception and confidence remain. He is an extremely difficult at bat for hitters - especially right-handers. Hans challenges hitters with his mid-90s fastball that has touched 97 mph and the delivery provides some deception on top of the pure stuff. Sometimes the pitch has finish and other times he has some recoil with a back leg kick-through. Either way it has serious life and gets on top of hitters in a hurry. Hans also throws an upper 70s curve with 3/4 tilt that has tight break. This isn't just a get-me-over pitch; he uses it fairly frequently and gets outs with it. Overall, Hans is one of the most talented arms in the class. He seems unfazed by things going on around him and shows the ability to make quality pitches at crucial times.

  • Hagen Danner - RHP - #24

    National League

    Hagen Danner, RHP

    Huntington Beach, CA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2/185
    • High School: Huntington Beach
    • College Commitment: UCLA

    Hagen is a talented 2-way player who caught in the Under Armour All-American Game and projects best on the mound as a RHP in the future. He has a proven track record of success both with his high school team and on the international level pitching for Team USA. He is a confident strike thrower who pitches comfortably in the low 90s to both sides of the plate and uses his downer curveball as an out-pitch. Poised on the mound with quality stuff, look for Hagen to continue to game momentum in the spring. Also a quality position player, Hagen has a coordinated RH swing with some loft power and shows some promise at a premium position.

  • Ricardo de la Torre - IF - #1

    National League

    Ricardo de la Torre, IF

    Juana Diaz, PR, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2/175
    • High School: P.R. Baseball Academy
    • College Commitment: Auburn University

    Ricardo showed well, once again, at the Under Armour All-America Game in Chicago. His premium tools were on display, showing the usual quick feet and strong arm defensively and the quick hands as a hitter. Those quick hands were on display when he singled up the middle on a 98 mph fastball. What was a bit surprising was the power that he showed throughout the event, turning on balls and driving them over the LF fence. Very athletic, and with a natural confidence Ricardo plays the game aggressively and has a chance to be a real impact player at a premium defensive position.

  • Mason Doolittle - C - #22

    National League

    Mason Doolittle, C

    Jupiter, FL, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'3''/195
    • High School: Jupiter
    • College Commitment: LSU

    Physical and athletic, Mason has a short, quick stroke that results in consistent hard line drive contact. His bat speed is largely generated from his hands and strong wrists. His line drives come off the bat well and have good carry, leading us to believe HR power is in his future. As a defender, the 6'3" Doolittle is flexible and very quick out of the chute. His arm release is quick and efficient and he has arm strength and throws accurately to 2B with quality carry. Mason is a hard worker with a bright future as one of the best backstops in the class.

  • Jake Eder - LHP - #19
    Read Bio

    National League

    Jake Eder, LHP

    Ocean Ridge, FL, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'4/215
    • High School: Atlantic High School
    • College Commitment: Vanderbilt

    Projectable left-handed pitchers with big upside are always in demand, and that is exactly what Jake is. His thin 6'4 frame will continue to fill out and his already high-level stuff will continue to be refined. Jake gets downhill plane on his fastball that sits in the upper 80s/ low 90s and he throws it to both sides of plate. His delivery is coordinated and has rhythm and his arm is clean and extremely quick. All of this points to higher velocity numbers in the future. He throws a curveball with 3/4 tilt and some depth to it, and also has feel for his changeup. His slight cross-fire delivery adds to the deception from this lefty. He has the arm stroke, delivery and 3-pitch mix of a future starter at a high level. The arrow is definitely pointing up on him.

  • Joe Gray - OF & IF - #11

    National League

    Joe Gray, OF & IF

    Hattiesburg, MS, 2018
    • HT/WT: 6'3/195
    • High School: HATTIESBURG HIGH SCHOOL
    • College Commitment: Ole Miss

    The ultra-athletic Gray was one of two underclassmen invited to this year's Under Armour All-America Game. He more than fit in with his quick-twitch actions and natural feel for the game. In the outfield, he robbed Garrett Mitchell of extra bases going deep to CF and making a leaping catch of a deep line drive hit over his head. He generates very good speed at the plate showing some pull power and the ability to manipulate the barrel well. The future is very bright for this versatile young prospect.

  • Adam Hall - IF - #8
    Read Bio

    National League

    Adam Hall, IF

    London, ON, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'0''/170
    • High School: AB Lucas
    • College Commitment: Texas A&M

    The top player in the 2017 class from Canada, Adam has been an integral part of the Canadian Junior National team the past couple years. Time and again he has proven that he can perform against top competition on the international stage, and he did the same at the Under Armour All-America Game where he showed his high-level ability in both workout settings and the game. He is a plus runner with quick-twitch actions who plays the game at a fast pace. While his tools are solid across the board, the sum is better than the parts, elevating his play in game situations - when it counts. Adam has a real knack for hard barrel contact and is very dependable in the infield, providing a combination that should make his stock continue to rise.

  • Ben Jordan - RHP - #3

    National League

    Ben Jordan, RHP

    Olive Hill, KY, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'9/220
    • High School: West Carter
    • College Commitment: University of Kentucky

    RHP Ben Jordan stands 6'9 tall and his outstanding extension makes it look like he is nearly handing the ball to the catcher - putting hitters at a distinct disadvantage. Ben controls his long levers in his delivery allowing him to pitch comfortably in the low 90s and touch higher on occasion. Add in a slight hesitation and the delivery has deception, making it especially difficult on right-handed hitters. The high 3/4 slot - almost overhand - creates big angle to all of his pitches. His curveball has almost true 12-6 break with big downer action and he shows some feel for an upper 70s changeup. Overall, Ben shows flashes of high-level starter stuff.

  • Nick Pratto - 1B - #32
    Read Bio

    National League

    Nick Pratto, 1B

    Huntington Beach, CA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2/195
    • High School: Huntington Beach
    • College Commitment: University of Southern California

    One of the best pure hitters in the class, Nick is a left-handed hitter with a sweet swing. He stands in confidently and makes hard contact to all fields, finding the barrel consistently. The game seems to come easy to Nick who has starred the last two summers for the USA 18U National Team. For that team he made big contributions both as both a hitter and pitcher. He has an advanced approach at the plate with excellent strike zone discipline and the ability to handle velocity as well as off-speed stuff. At 1B Nick is a smooth defender with soft, sure hands and good feel around the bag. Overall, this is one of the most complete players in the 2017 class.

  • Sam Praytor - C - #17
    Read Bio

    National League

    Sam Praytor, C

    Helena, AL, 2017
    • HT/WT: 5'10/210
    • High School: Helena
    • College Commitment: Alabama

    With a compact, strong build Sam has the frame and strength that can handle a long season behind the plate. His calling card is his short right-handed swing that impacts the ball with authority. The ball comes off his bat hard with big loft power to the pull side. That power was on display during the UA AA Home Run Derby as he drove multiple balls over the ivy-covered walls in LF at Wrigley Field. Defensively, Sam showcases a plus arm that has online carry to the bases after a clean, efficient exchange. As he refines his receiving, he will continue to be even more appealing as a sought-after catcher with legitimate power.

  • Heliot Ramos - OF - #21

    National League

    Heliot Ramos, OF

    Maunabo, PR, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2''/185
    • High School: Leadership Christian Academy
    • College Commitment: Florida International

    Heliot was one of the stars of the Under Armour All-America Game with an outstanding performance on the big stage at Wrigley Field. After showing off his tools during the workouts he went 3-3 in the game including a triple down the right field line, a single up the middle and a HR into the basket in left field. Heliot has an intriguing combination of speed, power and the ability to find the barrel - all on a strong frame. One of the top outfield prospects in the 2017 class he should draw lots of decision makers to Puerto Rico in the spring.

    Caleb Sloan, RHP

    Centennial, CO, 2017

    National League

    Mitchell Stone, LHP

    Edmond, OK, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'9/250
    • High School: Deer Creek
    • College Commitment: Oklahoma State University

    The 6'9" Stone has the uncanny ability, for a pitcher of his size, to repeat his delivery extremely well allowing him to command his stuff at an advanced level. His arm works very well with quickness out front and good finish to all of his pitches. His 3-pitch mix includes the standard fastball, curve and circle change, all thrown from a high 3/4 slot. As you would expect there is outstanding plane to all of his pitches, especially his fastball that sits comfortably in the upper 80s - creeping into the low 90s at times. Stone's curve has sharp, late break to it and acts as his out-pitch. It has very good depth and he does an excellent job of living down in the zone - even missing out of the zone low to induce a swinging K. His change is also a polished offering with fastball arm speed and late tailing action. Add in his athleticism to the impressive array of talents that Stone possesses and you have one of the highest ceiling prospects in the 2017 class.

  • Conner Uselton - OF - #14

    National League

    Conner Uselton, OF

    Oklahoma City, OK, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'3/190
    • High School: Southmoore
    • College Commitment: Oklahoma State University

    With a 6'3"/190 pound athletic frame, Conner already looked like he belonged when he walked onto the hallowed grounds of Wrigley Field. Fortunately, the tools match the body, as he has some of the biggest upside potential of anyone in this draft class. His swing is loose and natural with good barrel whip and the ability to impact the ball with authority without too much effort. Conner can drive the ball to all parts of the park and shows a quiet confidence each time he steps in the box. Defensively, he profiles best on the corner OF spots with good instincts and a strong, accurate arm. Look for this high-end talent to have a big spring and make some noise in the scouting community.

  • Ryan Vilade - SS - #4

    National League

    Ryan Vilade, SS

    Stillwater, OK, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2''/194
    • High School: Frisco
    • College Commitment: Oklahoma State University

    Ryan is one of the most advanced hitters in the 2017 class, with an excellent combination of hit and power. He has a coordinated right-handed swing and very strong hands that lead to consistent loud contact. While he is balanced and under control, the ball still jumps off his bat - as evidenced by his victory in the HR Derby at the Under Armour All-America Game. He put on quite a display driving balls over the ivy covered walls into the bleachers. Ryan is also a solid defender who is capable of playing anywhere in the infield thanks to his efficient feet, sure hands and strong arm. Whether it has been competing against older competition growing up, playing a major part on USA Baseball's 18U Gold Medal winning team, or excelling at the UA AA Game, Ryan has continued to prove that he is one of the elite bats in the upcoming draft, and he should get a lot of attention this spring.

    American League

    Shane Baz, RHP & IF

    Cypress, TX, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'3/190
    • High School: Concordia Lutheran
    • College Commitment: TCU

    A true athlete on the mound, Shane is a RHP with outstanding stuff. At 6'3/190 he is able to get some plane to his tailing fastball that sits comfortably in the low 90s and creeps higher at times. He throws a very effective high 80s cutter off his fastball and completes his arsenal with a solid curve and a change. His breaking ball has 3/4 tilt with some depth and his change has some fade. He is a competitor on the mound - aggressive with his fastball and not afraid to pitch inside. Shane's delivery has good tempo and his release point is consistent across his offerings. A 2-way player with legitimate RH power, he has the potential to do both at the collegiate level, though is highest ceiling is on the mound.

    American League

    Joe Boyle, RHP

    Goshen, KY, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'6''/225
    • High School: North Oldham
    • College Commitment: Notre Dame

    Joe, with his 6'6"/220 pound frame, has the look of a future workhorse starter on the mound. He employs a modified rock-and-fire delivery, leading with a high left shoulder that hides the ball well. His arm is quick through release and he has good finish to all of his pitches. Joe's stride, long arms and extension make it appear as if the ball leaves his hand about 40 feet from the hitter. That makes his fastball, which already creeps into the mid 90s, play even better. It is easy to project even more velocity in the future. In addition to his big fastball, Joe throws a curve with 2-plane break and tight rotation. At its best it has depth and functions as an out-pitch. He also throws a change that is surprisingly advanced considering it isn't needed too much at the high school level based on his other pitches. With limited effort necessary to generate his stuff, Joe has more upside and should be a high profile follow in the spring.

    Triston Casas, IF

    Pembroke Pines, FL, 2018
    • HT/WT: 6'4/235
    • High School: American Heritage
    • College Commitment: Miami

    One of two underclassmen at the Under Armour All-America Game, Triston not only fit in - he excelled. As usual, he put on an impressive display in workouts and batting practice. His hit/power combination is among the best in any class with the ball jumping off his bat to all fields. Triston's mature approach, strike zone discipline and useable power are well beyond his years. This big, physical LHH will be very fun to watch over the next few years.

  • Hunter Greene - RHP & IF - #42

    Hunter Greene, RHP & IF

    Stevenson Ranch, CA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'4/197
    • High School: Notre Dame
    • College Commitment: UCLA

    Strong and athletic, Hunter is one of the top prospects in the 2017 class. He is an accomplished 2-way player who is dominant on the mound and swings the bat with authority. His fast-paced delivery is balanced and in-line. It involves very little effort, yet produces fastballs that are up to 98 mph with excellent life. His arm is loose and free and he complements his fastball with a breaking ball and change that both show promise. Hunter also swings the bat very well from the right side and put on an impressive power display in the Under Armour AA Game HR Derby. He has good plane to his swing and excellent bat-to-ball skills. His stroke is natural and fluid and results in consistent hard contact. In the infield he shows dependable hands and plenty of arm across the diamond. Hunter is a high-level prospect as both a position player and pitcher, though the higher ceiling may be on the mound - where he should hear his name called very early in next June's draft.

    Dayton (DL) Hall, LHP

    Valdosta, GA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2''/180
    • High School: Valdosta
    • College Commitment: Florida State

    DL is more than just a LHP - he is an athlete. You can tell looking at the 6'2 frame, you can tell watching him run a sub-6.8 60-yard dash, and you can tell when you see his natural, repeatable delivery. It was that athleticism that helped him lead Houston County High School to the Georgia Class AAAAA State Championship last season. Not only did he go 6-1 on the mound with 3 saves and 89Ks in 58 IP, but he also hit .348 and led the team with 22 runs batted in. DL attacks hitters with his advanced 3-pitch repertoire that seems to be effective every time he steps on the mound. He is aggressive with his fastball that sits in the low 90s and even creeps into the mid-90s at times. His arm is clean and extremely quick and the ball jumps on hitters with very little effort. He complements his fastball with one of the best changeups in the class - an upper 70s offering thrown with the same arm speed and release point as his FB. In addition, DL has good feel for his curve which has 2-plane break with some depth.DL is a strike thrower and isn't afraid to pitch inside - a trait harder to find in young pitchers today. He has put himself on the short list of top arms in the 2017 class.

    Jacob Heatherly, LHP

    Cullman, AL, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2/208
    • High School: Cullman
    • College Commitment: Alabama

    The Under Armour All-America Game provided another stage for Jacob to show that he is among the top left-handed pitchers in the 2017 class. He, once again, pounded the strike zone with a low 90s fastball from a sound, repeatable delivery. There is not a lot of effort to generate that velocity allowing it to get on hitters in a hurry. Jacob showed confidence in both his breaking ball and change, landing them for strikes. It is easy to envision this polished pitching prospect in a rotation at the next level.

    Quentin Holmes, OF

    East Elmhurst, NY, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'0/180
    • High School: Monsignor McClancy Memorial
    • College Commitment: Mississippi State

    Perhaps the fastest player in the 2017 class, Quentin is a true centerfielder with excellent range thanks to his speed and reactions off the bat. He glides to balls, taking quality routes and closing quickly. At the plate Quentin has an extremely short swing that allows him to catch up to velocity and lends itself to line drive results. He is most comfortable using the middle of the field, occasionally splitting a gap - which usually results in a 3B. Adding in his good knowledge of the strike zone gives Quentin the sought-after profile of a top-of-the-order bat with middle-of-the-field defense.

    Aliso Viejo, CA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2''/188
    • High School: J Serra
    • College Commitment: University of California - Irvine

    One of the most dynamic players in the 2017 class, Royce can do it all. While his highest ceiling may be as a CFer, he can patrol any OF spot with ease and can also play anywhere in the IF. Regardless of where he plays, his bat is a weapon. His quick hands and natural feel for the barrel were on display throughout the Under Armour All-America weekend with his power also present on the HR he drove over the ivy at Wrigley Field in the game. He also hit .500 for the 18U USA National Team during their gold medal run, and he has been named his high school league's Player of the Year each of the last two seasons. It doesn't stop with his ability on the field, as he is one of the finest young men you will meet, with an energy and passion for the game that is contagious to his teammates. Royce brings an awful lot to the table and will be one the first, if not the first, high school player off the board in June.

    Brady McConnell, SS

    Merritt Island, FL, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2/170
    • High School: Merritt Island
    • College Commitment: University of Florida

    It's not often that we see a high school prospect with Brady's profile. At 6'2", he projects to stay at the SS position showing quick and efficient feet with sure hands. He reads hops very well and has a quick, clean exchange and plenty of arm for the left side of the diamond. As a hitter Brady has a short, quick stroke with good barrel whip and surprising pop. As he matures his power should continue to emerge, though he already can drive balls through the RCF gap and turn on balls to LF. He has the natural feel for the game that you like to see in a SS and can handle the big stage extremely well.

    MJ Melendez, C

    Montgomery, AL, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'0/165
    • High School: St. James
    • College Commitment: Florida International

    One of the most gifted defenders at the catching position that the high school ranks have seen in quite some time, MJ is fun to watch behind the plate. He controls the game and shows excellent flexibility and glove skills, making him a high-level receiver. His arm strength is outstanding, getting the ball from home to 2B as low as the 1.7s, another instance of his quick-twitch fibers at work. At the plate MJ has a whippy left-handed swing with some power potential that will continue to be unlocked as he matures. On top of the physical skills, MJ has a high baseball IQ and outstanding leadership qualities - just what you look for in a catcher. The son of a college coach, MJ lives the game and is an outstanding young prospect.

    Anaheim, CA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2''/195
    • High School: Orange Lutheran
    • College Commitment: UCLA

    Garrett continued to show high-level tools and the ability to use them at the Under Armour All-America Game. He showed the same quick-twitch actions and plus straight line speed that will allow him to stay in CF at the next level. After impressive rounds of batting practice, Garrett hit two balls on the screws in the game. With his speed and advanced left-handed bat Garrett continues to position himself near the top of the 2017 class.

    Andrew Papantonis, IF

    Glen Gardner, NJ, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'1/185
    • High School: Delbarton
    • College Commitment: University of Virginia

    One of the best athletes in the 2017 class, Andrew is an accomplished football player in addition to being one of the most talented infielders in the country. His quick-twitch fibers are on display in all aspects of the game. Defensively his first step is outstanding and he combines that with sure hands and excellent arm strength to allow him to anchor the shortstop position. He plays with big energy and passion while exhibiting leadership qualities on the field. As a hitter Andrew has a short, quick RH stroke that generates very good bat speed and leads to hard contact. As he refines the big tools he possesses, Andrew will emerge as a premium prospect.

    Ben Ramirez, 3B

    Chula Vista, CA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2/175
    • High School: Eastlake
    • College Commitment: USC

    Few players in the 2017 class have bigger upside potential than Ben. The game seems to come easy to this 6'2" infielder who has smooth, fluid actions. He can play multiple infield positions with his efficient feet, sure hands and strong arm. Wherever he plays defensively, he looks natural and confident. At the plate Ben has a pretty left-handed stroke with good balance throughout and outstanding head discipline. That combination allows him to spray line drives to all fields, and there is power on the horizon as he already squares up balls on a consistent basis. As he continues to mature physically, Ben will gain even more momentum on the national scene.

    Garrett (Hunter) Ruth, RHP

    Gainesville, FL, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'3/190
    • High School: Buchholz
    • College Commitment: University of Florida

    With a fast-paced, compact delivery Hunter comes right at hitters with an aggressive approach. He generates very good torque and has an extremely quick arm, leading to easy low 90s velocity, touching 94 in his inning at Wrigley Field. There looks to be even more in the tank as he is under control throughout and is a good athlete. Hunter mainly attacks hitters with that lively, firm fastball at the bottom of the zone and a downer breaking ball that has late break and low 80s velocity. He also mixes in a developing change that is a change-of-pace to left-handed hitters. He shows feel for this pitch giving him the necessary mix to project as a starter long term. The arrow is pointing up for Hunter - look for him to gain serious momentum in the spring.

    Alex Scherff, RHP

    Colleyville, TX, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'3/205
    • High School: Prestonwood Christian
    • College Commitment: Texas A&M

    Alex is a physical specimen at 6'2, 210 pounds. He is strong and developed and has a power arm. His fastball has natural tail from a 3/4 arm slot and is very firm, regularly in the mid-90s. His delivery is controlled and the ball explodes out of his hand - getting on hitters in a hurry. In contrast to the fastball velocity Alex mixes in a quality change up with good arm speed and some late fade. Alex finishes off his arsenal with a slider that has tight spin and late 2-plane break, giving him a very complete 3-pitch arsenal. The durable, work-horse body combined with outstanding stuff has the makings of legitimate starter potential at higher levels.

    Alejandro Toral, 1B

    Davie, FL, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'1/215
    • High School: Archbishop McCarthy
    • College Commitment: University of Miami

    Making his second consecutive appearance in the Under Armour All-America Game, Alex again showed that he is one of the premiere hitters in the 2017 class. With one of the top hit/power combinations in the country, he used his coordinated swing and advanced approach to perform well in both the workouts and game. While his swing is geared more for line drives he does have the ability to flash loft power, mostly to right field and right center. A solid overall athlete, Alex is a very good defender at 1B and has an excellent overall feel for the game. This relaxed, confident hitter has great strike zone discipline and the ball comes off his bat with authority. LH run-producing bats are always in demand and Alex will attract a lot of attention in the upcoming spring season.

    Christopher Troye, C

    Brentwood, CA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'4/210
    • High School: Heritage
    • College Commitment: UC Santa Barbara

    At 6'4"/210 pounds Christopher is a physical and durable catching prospect. Despite his size, he shows very good flexibility behind the plate and has the foundation of tools necessary to stay at that premium position. His hands are good and he has excellent arm strength with carry and accuracy. At the plate Christopher has a short, repeatable stroke with the result being hard line drives to all fields. There is power potential in him and his overall ceiling is very high. Christopher is an outstanding young man with a thurst for knowledge and a solid work ethic. Look for big things from him in the future.

    Cole Turney, OF

    Richmond, TX, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'0''/197
    • High School: Fort Bend Travis
    • College Commitment: University of Arkansas

    Cole showed, once again, that he is on the short list of the top hitters in the 2017 class with his performance at the Under Armour All-America Game. He showed the same natural rhythm and feel for the barrel that we have come to expect from him, both in the workouts and the game. HIs batting practice was the talk of the workout day as he pounded home run after home run high off the building behind the right field fence at Northwestern. Cole followed that up with a double and walk in the game to conclude a quality weekend. A very capable outfield defender as well, the total package is very appealing here with the left-handed bat as a true separator.

    Drew Waters, OF

    Woodstock, GA, 2017
    • HT/WT: 6'2/183
    • High School: Etowah
    • College Commitment: Georgia

    Drew is a prospect that does not come along too often - a legitimate center fielder who is a switch-hitter. He plays hard and fast on both sides of the ball and can make a positive impact on the game in a number of ways. He reads balls well off the bat in the outfield and has excellent closing speed and carry to his throws. As a hitter, he has a similar set-up and stroke from both sides of the plate. Despite a deep load he has not trouble handling velocity and has an advanced feel for the barrel. It is easy to envision Drew hitting at the top of an order and playing the premium defensive position of CF - a very appealing combination.
