UNSIGNED SENIORS - Southwest florida


Josh Kinker LHP / OF / Venice, FL / 2019

08/06/17 - The high-waisted, projectable 6-foot-2, 180 pound left handed pitcher struggled a bit with comand in his outing. Despite some of the command struggles, you can see what makes him extremely intriguing to colleges. The arm is extremely clean, and when he is not feeling for the strike zone, it works clean and easy with life on the fastball from 82-86 mph. He also shows the ability to throw a plus breaking ball and when in the zone is a swing and miss pitch. There is huge upside from the left side with an extremely projectable frame.


Andrew Bergeron 3B / SS / IMG Academy, FL / 2019

07/28/18- Uncommitted, the projectable 6-foot-2, 185 pound infielder continues to show athletic, loose and easy actions, that has him a solid defender in the middle and an above average defender at third. Offensively, the right handed hitter has a simple and repeatable swing. There is leverage in the path and as he levels it out it shows power with power potential. The exit velocity was 86 mph and has been 94 mph in the past. Had a home to first time of 4.54. Overall, he is one of the top remaining infielders that are available in the 2019 class. 


Tyler Kreissler 1B / 3B / Lemon Bay, FL / 2019

07/28/18 - Uncommitted, the 6-foot-2, 190 pound 1B/3B has a lean frame with strength. Defensively, the hands work well and he topped out at 76 mph. Offensively, there can be a lot of moving parts at times, which leads to some length and not clearing the back side. He tends to work over his front foot, but when he is on time, gets to extension, he uses the strong lower half well to generate present power. Had an exit velocity of 91 mph and has gap to gap power potential.
