Junior Future/ Future Games Trials Quick Hits:

The Junior Future/ Future Games Trials were held Tuesday, June 4 at The Performance Lab in Mobile. Wow! What a state of the art facility and the talent on hand matched what the facility had to offer. Not sure if we have had a better group of players at any previous event.  We will look at players that stood out in the individual testing stations in the next few days, as well as release a scouting blog on each player present at the event. For today, let’s take a look at just a few of the standouts from Tuesday. There were other standouts that we will take a look at later but these players really jumped out at us.

Gabriel Broadus (2021, SS/2B, Faith Academy) Super quick twitch guy that ran the fastest 60 we have recorded in Alabama (6.52). The swing works as well and showed plus glove work and easy arm strength across to 1B. Late bloomer in the ‘21 class.

Bryce Knox (2021, 3B/SS, Fairhope) Physical built (6’1 190 lbs.) 3B that showed nice feel at the hot corner and plenty of juice off of the barrel in BP (85 exit velo off the tee). Strong hands at the plate as well. Loved the simple approach.

Rashad Robinson (2021, OF, Mobile Christian) Athletic actions all the way around. Showed improved arm strength (86 mph OF velo) and as solid of an offensive approach at the plate as we saw all day. Really used the middle of the field. Also turned in a 6.86 60.

Michael Hopkinson (2021, SS/2B, Faith Academy) Slick fielding MIF that has added size and strength since we last saw him. Love the makeup of the player and just does everything right. Sub 7.0 60 (6.94) and the exit velo was 88 mph off the tee. The arm works as well, has already secured a spot to the Future Games for Team Alabama.

Will Passeau (2021, OF/RHP, St. Paul’s Episcopal) Looks the part (6’2 170 lbs.) and plays the part as well. Showed a powerful swing during BP and the arm works in the OF to go with plus footwork. He was impressive on the mound as well showing a FB up to 85 mph and feel for both secondary pitches.

Lane Griggs (2023, SS/2B, Russell County) A young ‘23 grad that had a solid day. Showed some pop at the plate and was 87 mph exit velo off the tee (as a 2023 grad!). Commanded the bottom half of the zone on the mound with an upper 70’s FB. A young one to follow.

Seth Reisinger (2021, RHP/OF, Baker) Really like the arm action of this Baker HS Hornet. In the OF he showed nice arm strength of 84 mph and this also translated well to the mound, where he showed a FB up to 81 with late action. The breaking ball was well shaped with bite.

Devin Polk (2022, C/RHP, Gulf Shores) Just a solid baseball player all the way around. A nice looking young catcher (6’1 170 lbs.) with plenty of arm strength for the position. Nice flexibility in the hips as well. Compact, short approach with plenty of pull side pop (88 mph exit velo off the tee).  

Jaxon Milam (2023, SS/RHP, Russell County) Love the all around game of this youngster. Solid approach offensively with some violence in the swing, producing plenty of pop. On the mound, he was up to 81 mph and really commanded both halves of the plate. A definite name to watch over the next few years.

Vinnie Bosio (2021, C/OF, St. Paul’s Episcopal) A legit 2 position guy that can also run (7.08 60). Showed a pull side approach during BP and really kept the barrel through the hitting zone. Showed plenty of arm strength from the OF with nice feel for the position. Stood out as a catcher showing nice feel for receiving pitches a threw an event best 1.88 to 2B.

Mason Dozier (2022, RHP/1B, Russell County) Going to be a big time power arm. Does a nice job of using his lower half and really creates nice tilt on the FB. The ball (FB up to 82) seemed to explode out of his hand and the arm action is real.

Drew Druckenmiller (2021, RHP/OF, Faith Academy) Love the bulldog mentality of this RHP. Yes, he was up to 87 mph with the FB with quick arm action and very easy, simple mechanics. The separator was the breaking ball with true 12/6 action that is a definite two plane pitch (see the tweet from the event.) Some big time program is going to get a big arm in this guy.

Jax Yoxtheimer (2023, OF/3B, Central Phenix City) Hard to believe this guy is a ‘23 grad after watching him. The bat plays big time from the left side with some tilt in the path and plenty of juice. Solid feel in the OF and the FB was 77-79 throughout his bullpen. Already 6’3 165 lbs. and turned in a 6.88 60 yard dash as well.


These are just a few of the impressive players present at the event. We will continue to cover the other players in the next few days as content from the event will continue to roll out.
