The Arms

Ethan Armstrong RHP / 3B / Garden City, MI / 2026

Report: Top '26 in his class with electric stuff on the mound. 86-88 at the Future Games with ability to spin for strikes garnering swings and misses. 6-2, 200-pounds with plenty of growth to be had on the mound.

Case Bosch LHP / 1B / Jenison, MI / 2025

Uli Fernsler LHP / 1B / Novi, MI / 2025

Report: Uli turned a lot of head at the Future Games, getting the start on Saturday vs. Team Select. Featuring a mid 80s fastball with deception and two offspeed pitches for strikes in the changeup and breaking ball. We were hoping to get the start we did from him, as it's what we saw in the late spring into the summer. Uli has a calm demeanor for a youngster with a great build for a LHP.

The Two-Way Prospects
