Draft Spotlight: SS Brice Turang

Steve Doherty
SoCal Area Scout

Highly publicized as one of the top prospects in the nation, Turang entered his 2018 high school campaign under the microscope of all 30 MLB clubs. It's safe to say that all eyes were on him in the State of California. The question was would he live up to all the expectations and hype? And would he display enough to get his name called at the top of the 2018 MLB Draft class on Monday?

The list of accomplishments is long, here are a few. In 2016, Turang, a HS sophomore, made the U18 USA National Team, a roster chalked with future major leaguers, where they collected a gold medal at the COPABE Pan Am AAA Championships in Monterrey, Mexico. The same year he was the MVP of the Big VIII league. A year later, in 2017, he captured a Gold medal, hitting .353 in 9 games, and making a big impact with the U18 USA Team at the WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup, in Thunder Bay, Canada. Turang also garnered attention by being selected to play in the prestigious Area Code Games in Long Beach, Ca., representing the Milwaukee Brewers. He was also named an All-American by various outlets.

An LSU commit currently ranked 16th overall and the #1 shortstop on the PBR Draft Board, Turang not only has the MLB bloodlines, but the talent as well. He carries himself like major leaguer, and has a certain demeanor and confidence about him that I love. Turang had a big MLB following from scouts this year and always seemed to play loose and unfazed at the droves of scouts at each game.

Turang has the tools and elite bat-to-ball skills that will enhance his development and fast promotion through the Minor Leagues if he chooses to sign. The development of his hit tool will determine his overall impact potential. He's really fun to watch and you want to sit up on the edge of your seat when he's on the field. He exhibits an inner fire to compete and win. There is no questioning the future is extremely bright for Turang, it looks like its all up to him now.

Let's take a closer look at Bryce Turang.
