Junior Winter Standouts
February 21, 2018
There have been several preseason events held in the last few weeks and many players stood out in advance of their high school seasons starting. We’re taking the next few weeks to look at some of those players. First, we highlighted winter standouts from the senior class. Next up, we have standout juniors.
Nathan Baez, SS, Ironwood Ridge HS, AZ
Baez has a developed upper body with impressive strength in his forearms and wrists on his 6-foot-1, 175-pound frame. While he doesn’t possess elite athleticism or arm strength, he can be a factor offensively and his instincts allow him to play above his tools on defense. He takes an impressive BP with loud contact, a big leg kick and deep hand load. He does a good job with his feet to create momentum to his target. He runs a 7.13 60.
