4 Uncommitted Bats From BC Scout Day To Learn About

Jamie Bodaly
PBR BC Director of Scouting

The annual BC scout day that typically takes place in late February, early March has always given pro scouts and a few college teams an early look at the talent in the western parts of Canada. This day was no different as there were many prospects who have clearly been working hard over the winter making significant gains on the mound and on the field.

We highlight six arms here who stood out on the day with more notes and videos on position players to come.

British Columbia Insider: 4 Uncommitted Bats From BC Scout Day To Learn About

Madjik Mackenzie RHP / SS / John Oliver, BC / 2019

Report: Madjik a 6-foot-2, 190-pound right-hander with great pitch ability and potential. He throws from a high-¾ slot with clean arm action with relative ease in his delivery with repeatable mechanics. His fastball was 84-85 mph at the BC Scout Day workout but has been up to 87 at Tournament 12. His curveball/slider was 65-67 with late break and acts more like a cutter starting it off in the middle of the plate and breaking away from a right-handed hitter. Madjik’s changeup was 74-76 with good life. He is an uncommitted 2019 arm that is a must follow for college coaches.

Daniel Gernon OF / Lord Tweedsmuir, BC / 2018

Report: Daniel is a quick twitch outfielder who stands at 6-foot, 200-pounds and is a plus runner with power. Has a simple balanced approach at the plate with a little barrel tip pre-pitch and a leg kick with a slight upward swing plane. The ball makes a different sound coming off his bat and he profiles as a top of the order bat. Defensively, he can go get it with an average arm which has improved since last year. Ability to stay in the middle of the diamond while if need be, should be able to make a move to the corner in relatively easy fashion.

Connor Dykstra C / OF / Sardis Secondary, BC / 2019

Report: Connor, 6-foot-1, 210-pounds is a big strong catcher from Chilliwack. He has a short compact swing with plus power and a slightly upward bat path. He has good mobility behind the plate and receives well with a strong arm. He looks to be a potential Team BC catcher this summer and is a top 2019 bat in his class. Will be a definite follow for guys and look like he can contribute on both sides of the ball from a premium position.

Ryan Beitel SS / RHP / Langley Secondary, BC / 2019

Report: Beitel is a 6-foot-2, 175-pound shortstop and has the potential to be an impact college player. He has good actions along with really smooth hands and a plus arm from the six hole. The swing looked shorter and in the zone longer than in the past and has present gap to gap power with the chance to add more as the matures and fills out down the road.
