Central Coast Section, CA: Spring 2020 is here and as teams get ready for game action to start in the next two weeks, I've been working my lists for under-class (2022/2023) players that could make big jumps in the Spring season. Athleticism, raw tools, and projection are all things I saw when creating this list. Whether you are a scout, recruiter, fan or parent here are twenty uncommitted under-class players to keep an eye on during the 2020 Central Coast Section season.


Lucas Kelly 2022 SS/RHP Sacred Heart Cathedral One of the best players in CCS Focus as a Freshman and keeps improving.
Power arm/power bat plus 6-3 frame to be a problem for opposing pitchers
Brenden Moore 2022 RHP/OF Pacific Grove Big innings as a Freshman and growing into one of the better arms in area.
FB already touching mid-80's and feel for downer CB
Jack Vanoncini 2022 C/SS Carlmont Looked the part at NorCal PSAS with advanced understanding of positions
Bat has chance to be one of better ones in section.
Wyatt King 2022 OF/RHP St. Francis Lots of barrels at NorCal PSAS and athleticism to be a force defensively
Showed this summer skills to be a two-way guys also
Will Bowen 2022 OF Serra Quick, strong hands with ability to drive the ball. Easy lift on baseball.
Arm strength to play a corner OF spot.

Swing made to drive balls middle of the gaps.
Zach Yorke 2022 INF Archbishop Mitty Played 2nd as a Freshman with bat-to-ball skills from LH swing. Defensive skills present, long term future still undecided.
Lou Martineau 2022 OF Burlingame Lean and wiry frame with easy athleticism. Arm strength/speed for all OF. Barrel is quick and compact with growth as he matures/adds strength
Owen Dueck 2022 LHP Aptos Lean, wiry frame starting to add more strength. Shown pitchability and presence on the mound with FB/CHG/CB all showing promise.
