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 guys who could hear their name called in the MLB draft and another group of the Top Committed players in the Section. Whether you are a scout, recruiter, fan or parent here are two groups of players to keep an eye on during the 2020 Central Coast Section season.


Nick Yorke 2020 MIF Archbishop Mitty Arizona commit. Always finds barrels and shows knack for big moments. Speed/awareness/personality to fit anywhere on the field
Tommy Troy 2020 MIF Los Gatos Stanford commit. Natural speed for middle of the diamond and able to get to it regularly. Arm strength and some burgeoning pop as well.
Carson Yates 2020 OF Leland UCLA commit. Two-sport star with raw baseball skills. Will push double-plus run times and utillizes strength in frame. If he taps his power more consistently, watch out
Drew Dowd 2020 LHP Serra Stanford commit. Protoypical pitcher build and stuff that could make big jumps. Always had the stuff and if he's healthy could push to be one of the best in NorCal.
Eddie Park 2020 OF Valley Christian Stanford commit. Hit getter. Able to control the barrel for all fields. Plus speed gives him chance to stick in CF and keep improving.
Michael Mugan 2020 OF Monterey Santa Clara commit. Improved swing mechanics have unlocked more power and the arm strength/speed to fit in any OF spot. Big spring could see him make jumps
Rowan Trosky 2020 RHP Carmel Santa Clara commit. Frame to keep adding to low 90's FB and breaking ball actions will give him chance to make an impression.
Brendan Bobo 2020 3B/SS Harbor Fullerton commit. Physical LH bat with arm strength to stick on left side of the diamond. Tools are still raw but ready for jump.
Jon Jon Berring 2020 OF Palma Santa Clara commit. Plus speed and close to plus defender in CF. Power for frame is impressive and with speed easy steal threat
Joey Schott 2020 RHP St. Francis Baylor commit. Command of 3 pitches (FB/CHG/CB) and ability to pitch. Worked high 80's into the late summer and one more velocity jump could see him drawing eyes.
