Every Friday National Scouting Supervisor Nathan Rode provides a roundup of insider recruiting information and commitments throughout the PBR coverage area: The Buzz. Click Here to take a look at this week’s National Buzz. With that in mind, let’s take an in depth look at some of the top unsigned prospects in the state of Florida with detailed scouting information.

Tanner May, SS, Dr. Phillips, 2016
2/20/15 - Uncommited junior. 6-foot, 170 pound infielder with a loose lean athletic body and good actions in the infield with some softness in hands and enough arm for the position. Plays with energy and is aggressive on routes to ball. Has some quickness in bat but lacks strength. Good hand eye. Had 2 hits tonight off of a good arm. Bat will improve with added strength. 12/28/14 - Continues to show good actions with enough arm for SS. Very aggressive reads and angles. Comes and gets ball. Good instincts. Showed quickness with bat with good hand eye. Uses whole field. Plays with energy. Projectable kid. Whole game will improve with added strength.

Jordan Leasure, RHP, Riverview, 2016
2/21/15- 6-foot-2, 170 pound right hander with a lean, loose, and projectable body. He has a high ¾ arm slot. Takes ball out to first base and lands in line. Loose arm action with an 81-84 mph fastball that has arm side run. 68 mph slurve that breaks the length of the plate and he throws for strikes. Breaks a little early but with added velocity it will be sharper. Attacks the zone. Against Spoto he had 4 IP, 0 runs, and 2 hits allowed. 

Alvaro Valdez, OF, Westminster Christian, 2016
2/12/15 - 6-foot-1, 205 pound outfielder with a body like Andre Ethier. Smooth-swinging CF from the Dominican Republic. His 1st- inning hit a double into deep LCF off of Valverde that plated two runs.  Also saw him at PG World event in Ft Myers in January where he shined.  Doesn’t run enough for CF down the road, but it’s a good swing and a good body. 2 for 2 with a BB today. Had good swings and good at bats.

Victor Feliz, RHP, Southridge, 2016
2/23/15 - 6-foot-1, 185 pound right hander. Looks a little taller than the listed 6 foot. Good pitcher’s body with a pretty clean delivery. Fastball was 82-85 mph with a little more velocity to come. Did not see any secondary stuff. Good feel for pitching. Did a nice job keeping the game close for his 2 innings of relief. A guy to keep an eye on.
