Brett Thorney
State Scouting Director

Welcome to our Arizona Player of the Week 

Each week our PBR Arizona staff will choose a Player of the Week from our coverage throughout the previous week's AIA Coverage. This player will be chosen based on their performance for the given week or for particular reasons that set them apart from other players from around the state of Arizona. We will try to post our player of the week at the beginning of every week throughout the spring high school season. 

Player of the Week

2021 SS Wes Kath

2021 SS Wes Kath (Desert Mountain)- Arizona State recruit, Kath's stock has been trending up for awhile now and continues to move up our board. Kath sports an athletic 6-3/200-pound frame with present strength. His foot speed & lateral quickness seem to have received an uptick from the offseason. He's a solid shortstop at the high school level in Arizona in a noticeably bigger frame than others at the position. His defensive abilities & above average athleticism give him some some upside as he may switch over to 3B at the next level. His left-handed bat is what has everyone's attention. Kath shows a strong ability to slow the game down with comfortability in the box. His power potential has been on the rise leading up to the season where has shown the ability to drive the ball over the fence and use the whole field with authority. Since taking over the No.1 in spot in Arizona, Kath hasnt looked back. In the last 5 games, Kath is batting .700 (14 for 20) with 11 runs & 11 RBIS on 7 HRS, 2 triples & 2 doubles. Last week, he even had a 5 for 5 game where he had 3 HRS & 2 triples including the walkoff HR vs Sunnyslope. For these reasons, Kath has been nominated for our PBR Arizona- Player of the week. He has also been nominated for our National- Player of the Year Watch List sponsored by Big League Chew. 

We congratulate Wes Kath of Desert Mountain on being nominated our PBR Arizona- Player of the Week.
