Alabama Scout Blog: Sweet 16 Edition

Prep Baseball Alabama Staff


The Prep Baseball Alabama Scout Blog provides insider information and scouting notes from the Prep Baseball Scouting Staff during the season. This running blog will feature information on underclass prospects, unsigned seniors, draft prospects and anything else that is notable. We will provide a wide range of information, including player evaluations, velocities, pop times, home to first times and much more.

Today, we take a look at some notable prospects our staff saw during the Elite 8 series of the Class 6A-1A playoffs last week. 


+ C Brue Milner (Tallassee, 2027) has been a name our staff has been hearing plenty of good things about over the course of the spring and he certainly didn't disappoint with a massive series on the offensive side this past week. Listed at 5-foot-9, 190-pounds, the freshman backstop possesses a strong build with good lower-half strength and is built like a prototypical catcher. While certainly he's a quality defender behind the plate for a freshman, but certainly the most eye-opening tools right now is the ability to hit for power to all fields. Hitting in the three-hole for a talented Class 5A program, Milner was on the barrel from the first pitch of the series, showing the ability to the inflict loud contact to the baseball. Hitting from a balanced stance with wider, strong base, the right-hander has a simple forward movement to contact and utilizes his strength to his advantage offensively. The barrel gets on-plane early and it stays that way throughout the swing accompanied by above-average bat speed, allowing him to hit for power. He carries himelf like a prospect much older than his currenge age, and exudes a professional right-handed approach and showed the ability to handle upper-80s with relative ease during Game 2. Delivered two home runs and five RBIs in Game 3 to help lift them to a series win. Noteworthy prospect in the 2027 class in Alabama who is going to be a hot commodity in a couple years.
