There were six players that went through the defensive workout as an outfielder. Three of these outfielders were 2022 grads, one 2023 grad, one 2024 grad and one 2025 graduate.  This group showed some nice athleticism and there was some arm strength among this group as well. Check out the individual report on each player below. Over the next few days we will release our scout blogs on the infielders and pitcher- only participants.
