Our Metro East Open recaps culminate with the top overall prospects from the event. As a busy summer is nearly coming to an end, all of these top performers are still uncommitted. Here’s a look at the top overall prospects.

1. Justin Bauersachs, RHP, Trico, 2017
6-foot-4, 190 pound, right-handed pitcher with a well-proportioned, projectable frame.  Put himself on the map as one of the harder throwing 2017’s in Illinois.

Changeup, maintains arm speed, flashed arm side run and sinking action, 79-82 mph. Curveball, 11/5 shape,  short, tight break, power type, 73-77 mph.  High follow 2017 arm.
