Scouting Notes on top prospects from Campbell, Clemson, LSU, Maryland, Oklahoma, Old Dominion, Southern Miss, Vanderbilt and Virginia.



No. 1 Jacob Berry, OF- Off to a slower start compared to those of several of his teammates, Berry looked a bit stiff at the plate and out of sync with more length to his swing than I previously recall. The 6-foot, 205-pound switch hitter has a very simple swing from both sides with no extra movements that produces plus power to all fields. He pulled off the ball just enough to result in most contact above the barrel, yet still managed to go 6-for-16 with six RBI over the four-game weekend. Berry is currently slashing .343/.400/.657 with three home runs and 11 RBI through the first eight games this season. His top exit velocities for the weekend were 103.2, 102.7 and 101. Defensively, Berry showed average arm strength with below accuracy from third base, making it play below average on the dirt. Not a natural infielder, his defensive chops are likely in the outfield where he catches what he gets to and his arm plays better with its carry. At the pro level he profiles as a right fielder where his hit and power tools will likely place him in the middle of a Major League lineup. 

No. 43 Cade Doughty, 2B- The SEC Player of the Week...
