Florida Insider: Uncommitted 2016 Pitchers

By Mike Maerz
Area Scout/Director of Florida Operations

After an exciting summer in Florida that yielded many college commitments and updates in the rankings, the fall baseball season is in full force. Many teams and organizations are not only practicing on a daily basis, but most are involved with tournaments and events into late November.

We wanted to highlight five 2016 pitchers with video that are still uncommitted at this point. These five ranked pitchers have stood out throughout the summer and will be looking to continue their success throughout the fall season in hopes of finding a home at the next level soon.
