Ryan DePew RHP / 3B / Grandview, CO / 2021

5-foot-11, 165 pounds. Bats and throws right. At the plate slightly crouched in stance, slight leg kick. Keeps hands inside of ball, lets ball get deep. Gap to gap power. 89 mph exit velo off a tee. Behind the dish had pop-times off pitcher in between innings of 2.05 and 2.10. Arm velo was 70 mph. Pretty quiet behind plate with framing. On the mound pitches mostly from stretch, has some deception. Lands with a closed stride, slightly towards 3B. Wraps back and comes from 3/4 arm slot. Not much effort in delivery. Throws 4 pitches. Fastball lived 76-78 mph touching 79 thrown for strikes. Has some arm side run. Curve had 11/5 shape at 62-63 mph. Change was 67-68 with some fade. Also threw a splitter at 61-62 mph. Ran a 7.7 60 time. Solid 2021 prospect in Colorado. 

 

 

Cole Martino RHP / 1B / Pueblo County , CO / 2021

A 5-foot-11, 183-pound right hand pitcher.  Smooth mechanics and arm action on the mound.  From balance he falls to the plate and stays on two feet during the pitch.  He throws from an over the top arm slot and falls across his body on the follow through. Velocity should increase as he grows and drives to the plate.  During the TPG he showcased an 80 MPH fastball which he located well away from the right hand hitter.  He was able to mix in a 65 MPH curve with 11/5 break consistently for a strike which made his fastball more effective.  

 

 

Adam Moser OF / 2B / Fairview , CO / 2021

At the plate he hits from a balanced stance with a slow load on the pitch.  Good lower leg drive on the swing.  Hands come through the zone and create good whip.  Exit velocity was 77 MPH.   In the field he showed good athletic actions and instincts.  He has soft hands and a good glove to hand transfer.  Arm Velocity was 71 MPH. On the mound he gets to balanced and falls to the plate.  As he grows, leg drive will increase. Delivery is from a high 3/4 rm slot.  Fast ball was 72 MPH with good location in and out.

Nathan Gutierrez LHP / 1B / Douglas County, CO / 2021

On the mound he is smooth to the plate.  Leg Drive has improved, he needs to drive harder on the pitch but mechanics are sound.  Arm slot is high ¾ and his fastball has late run.  Fastball velocity was 73 MPH at the FPG and he works the outer half well.  He mixed in a 62-64 MPH curve with sweeping 2/7 break.  At the plate he starts balanced and incorporates a high leg kick on the pitch.  Weight shifts through the zone on the swing.  Swing path is slightly uphill and he shows good plate coverage.  Exit velocity was 76 MPH at the TPG.
