Alabama Summer Trials: Quick Hits:

The Alabama Summer Trials were held Thursday, July 19 at Birmingham Southern College for the 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 classes. An impressive group of players showed up for the event. Some of the top performers were:

Christian Collier (2019, OF/RHP, G.W. Long) was one of the more impressive players we have seen all summer. Had loud contact in BP and showcased a plus arm from the OF during defensive work. Don’t expect him to be uncommitted long.More about him tomorrow in our lists of individual top performances.

Trentin Dupper (2019, OF/2B, Decatur) showcased a powerful gap to gap approach during BP and tracked balls well in the OF and showed a very consistent arm as the ball really jumped out of his hand.

Treyce Byrd (2020, SS/RHP, Saraland) an solidly built baseball player that did a lot of things well. Nice footwork with advanced feel with the glove and a plus arm across the diamond during IF drills and was equally impressive on the mound. Will continue to progress.

Peyton Wesson (2019, Fayetteville, LHP) showed the ability to really command three pitches on the mound. He has thrown a good bit lately so his velocity may have been a bit down but he had typical LHP action and presented secondary pitches that he had feel on how to throw.

Evan Liddie (2019, SS/2B, Madison Academy) showed progress from an earlier event. Glove work was fluid and feet showed good action with a plus arm across the infield. Also showed more pop in his offensive game as well.

Hudson Holley (2019, RHP, Demopolis) FB really appeared to jump out of his and the ability to get on hitters pretty quick. Also flashed a plus breaking ball with tight spin.

Jackson Reece (2019, LHP, James Clemens) commanded all of his pitches down in the zone from a ¾ arm slot. Mechanics are clean and his some ASR on his fastball.

Tomorrow we will showcase some additional players from the day as we will list the top performers in the individual events. Follow @PBR_Alabama on twitter for the latest in prep baseball in Alabama.
