PBR Florida ProCase Event Preview



By Doug Freeman and Mike Maerz

The first year of the Florida ProCase featured players that will have a chance to see their name called in the upcoming June MLB Draft such as Sam McMillan, Freddy Tarnok, Tim Elko, Graham Hoffman and many others. Some of these players were well known coming into last year's ProCase and others saw their stock rise throughout the summer, fall and spring. This years event is no different. One of the more intimate events we run, it gives our staff an opportunity to evaluate and get to know players such as Florida's No. 1 2018 Mason Denaburg as well as a host of other talented players alike. Below is the full roster for tomorrow's event as well as a brief breakdown of what you can expect.
