Rising Stars Showcase: Outfield Analysis


Les Lukach
State Scouting Director

The Inaugural Rising Stars Showcase took place at Santiago High School in Corona, California and was open to players in the 2022 and 2023 classes. The event attracted over 50 players in these two classes with many of these players likely to be found on our upcoming 2022 Class Rankings. The participants were put through a pro-style workout that saw them run the 60 yard dash, batting practice, and a defensive workout before the pitchers took the stage to throw their bullpens and close out the event.

As part of our continuing coverage of the event we will continue to break down all the data, roll out stats, content, and videos from the event, but first here are some quick hits from what we saw at Santiago HS.

NOTE: Players here listed outfield as their primary position with some participating at other positions as well. Players are listed in no particular order. Click on players name to see video from the event.

Scouting Report

9/23/18 - Rising Stars Showcase - Six-foot-2, 175-pounds, large frame with lean muscle and wiry strength throughout the body. Squared shoulders with long limbs and large feet (size 16). Roulston is one of most projectable athletes that participated in the event with his raw present tools. At the plate he shows a knack for barreling the ball consistently and driving balls to the gaps. Barrel really plays in the hitting zone where he keeps it on plane and through the zone for a long time. Does an excellent job of syncing his lower half with his swing. Finish is balanced. In the outfield he shows excellent range to both sides and athletic movements. Attacks balls aggressively with good footwork. Hands are average and his arm gets a little long in the throw. With continued work in the outfield Roulston has big potential out there given his athleticism. Exchanges are quick and clean while his present arm strength is average. Plays through the ball but tends to slow when arriving to it.

Scouting Report

9/23/18 - Rising Stars Showcase - Five-foot-five, 150-pounds, medium frame that is thick with present strength particularly in the lower half through the backside down through the thighs. Shows fast hands at the plate where he profiles a future high average hitter. Sprays balls to all fields but projects more consistent line drives with added strength. Uses the lower half well in his swing through to a balanced finish. Swing can get a little "handsy" on him at times. Defensively he gets around balls well with quick feet showing range to both sides. Plays through balls aggressively. Is quick from catch-to-release with clean exchanges. Arm strength is presently average with accuracy.

Scouting Report

9/23/18 - Rising Stars Showcase - Five-foot-9, 155-pounds, large, long frame with wiry strength throughout. Cabada showed very well at the plate where he shows plus feel for hitting and the barrel. Consistently barreled balls during his round and showed some sneaky pop to the gaps. Has a good understanding of his hitting zone and doesn't stray from it. Bat projects with continued physical maturation. In the outfield he shows a big, strong, accurate arm and an understanding of angles and hops. Throws have life and were on the bag. Has range to both sides. Footwork is is quick without a lot of wasted movements. Exchanges are clean and quick and he plays through balls with athletic movements. Cabada shows a lot of projection on the mound where he's aggressive in attacking the zone with three pitches. Shows a long, loose, quick arm action through to his ¾ slot. Arm shows some effort. Stays tall in the back before driving down the mound with a short half leg kick. Mechanics are clean and repeatable. There's rhythm to his delivery; lands inline before falling off to the third base side. Fastball pops out of his hand and shows some run to the arm side as it enters the hitting zone. Commands it down in the zone. Curveball can be loopy - he casts it, but when thrown with conviction is shows late with sharp, downer action thrown at or below the knees. Cabada shows feel for the changeup which has late tailing life in the hitting zone.

Scouting Report

9/23/18 - Rising Stars Showcase - Five-foot-8, 140-pounds, medium/large frame with long limbs, high waist, large feet, and wiry strength throughout the body. Farmer stood out to our team of scouts with his overall game, particularly at the plate where he shows a potential plus hit tool given his present bat speed, fast hands, and understanding of his zone. Has some sneaky power to the pull side presently with the ability to pepper gaps with line drives. Shows a middle approach that he sticks to. Power projects with continued physical maturation. In the outfield Farmer shows a strong arm with life and accuracy. Arm is a tick long but releases from ear. Hands are soft with clean, quick exchanges. Charges balls under control while playing through them. On the mound Farmer showed a quick-to-fast arm along with clean and repeatable mechanics. Drop-and-drive delivery that gains a fair share of ground working down the mound. Shows a full arm swing in the back through to a ¾ slot and an out-front delivery. Fastball shows some run to the arm side while staying down in the zone. He moved the pitch to both sides of the plate with accuracy. Sows feel for the changeup which shows run back to the arm side from fastball arm speed. Command was a bit erratic with the pitch. Curveball is a potential plus pitch with it's late breaking action. Maintains fastball arm speed with the pitch.

Scouting Report

9/23/18 - Rising Stars Showcase - Five-foot-10, 160-pounds, medium/large frame with strength in the lower half, squared shoulders and wiry strength down through to the wrists. At the plate Egan shows excellent control of the barrel which he maintains through the hitting zone for a long time. He's short to the ball and gets extended through it.

In the outfield Egan has an above average arm that flashes life and accuracy from a short, compact arm action with a quick release. Gathers the ball out front and exchanges are clean and quick with no wasted movements. Footwork is fluid with good range to both sides. Charges ball with excellent body control and plays through them to release.
