+ 2020 C/3B Austin Embrey (Russell County, AL) showed solid athleticism behind the dish with soft hands receiving and quick, clean transfers and a quick, easy arm. The rising sophomore posted pop times of 2.05 and 2.08 between innings.
+ 2019 SS/2B Dante Ciaramella (Monmouth Regional, NJ) smoked a triple to right-centerfield and was a 4.82 on the turn at first base from the right side. Defensively he made two nice plays, one on a pop-up in the right field triangle while playing second base. The second was hanging in on a tag at second base to end an inning.
+ 2019 OF John Tyler Mounce (Cypress Christian, TX) is an athletic, fast-twitch left-handed hitter. He took a solid swing against a 90+ mph fastball and was on time, but just missed the barrel, hitting a fly ball to right field with a 5.83-second hang time. Mounce then walked in his next two at bats.
+ 2019 Julian Greenwell (Columbus East, IN) took some of the best swings of the day for team select. The left-handed hitter laced a fastball off his shoe-tops to center field with two strikes, then put together a nine pitch at bat where he battled hard and hit ground ball to first base.

+ 2019 C/OF Caleb Munton (Wylie, TX) is a switch hitter with power from both sides. From the left-side he was 1-for-2 with a hard ground ball through the middle.
