Cooper Trinkle
Lead Scout

Chase Bays, SS, Mishawaka Marian HS

One of the better uncommitted bats still left on the board, Bays offers tons of offensive prowess from the right-side of the batter's box. A strong, 5-foot-11, 195 pounder with advanced bat speed, Bays has a physical presence in the box with solid bat-to-ball skills and looks to do damage to the pull-side. Likely a 3B or offensive-oriented 2B at the next level, Bays’ best tool is his bat but also offers solid arm strength across the diamond at 88 mph. 


Bryce Brabender, SS, Mooresville HS

Brabender has been a notable riser in the 2024 rankings throughout the past two updates and continues to show strong improvements in his overall skillset. A wiry, 5-foot-11, 160 pound middle infielder - Brabender has tapped into some power for Mooresville this spring, clubbing eight home runs during the regular season of his junior year. A 6.69 runner, Brabender possesses quick hands at the dish and offers interesting defensive versatility with plenty of arm strength (88 mph FB | 85 mph INF). 


Miguel Correa Jr, SS, Avon HS

A 5-foot-9, 175 pound middle infielder with some strength, Correa's bat is his best tool as the right-handed hitter offers a simple, well-sequenced swing with quality bat-to-ball skills to go along with some strength in the barrel. An above-average runner (6.99 60), Correa likely fits the mold of an offensive-oriented 2B at the next-level with fluid feet and sure hands in the infield. 



Logan Crock, SS, Lawrence North HS

An undersized gamer-type, Crock plays the game hard and bounces around the infield with energetic feet. The 5-foot-8, 155 pounder offers a run-tool (6.76 60) to go along with a short, compact swing from both sides of the dish, fitting the mold of a top-of-the-order type hitter that can create havoc on the base-paths. Crock has shown the ability to really defend in the middle infield, showing ultra-quick feet and above-average arm strength with carry across the diamond. 



Joshua Girvan, SS, Zionsville HS

Girvan's athleticism has shot him up the 2024 rankings and he has really shown the ability to impact the game with his feet for Zionsville this spring. An advanced runner (6.64 60) - Girvan leads the HCC with 24 stolen bases and his foot speed allows him to range and play downhill in the infield. The 6-foot, 180 pound right-handed hitter possesses quick hands at the dish and flashes strength in his barrel, posting a 100.1 mph exit velocity in showcase this winter. 



Brayden Hibler, SS, Westfield HS

Hibler can flat out pick it as he is the top uncommitted shortstop still left on the board with the arm strength and defensive actions to stick at shortstop at the next level. The glove is a legitimate tool, but the bat has really taken a step forward this spring as he is developing more strength in the barrel. The 6-foot-2, 165 pounder has simplified his moves at the plate, showing quality bat-to-ball skills and the ability to control the strike zone with budding power potential. High baseball IQ type that plays with instincts.



Logan Marsell, 2B, McCutcheon HS 

A 5-foot-11, 190 pounder with present strength - Marsell has really hit for McCutcheon this spring, batting .464 with 7 doubles and 3 home runs through 23 games. Marsell has an aggressive approach at the dish, using his strength to produce big bat speed and flashing gap-to-gap power in-game. A primary 2B, Marsell can also slide to a corner outfield with above-average foot speed and arm strength as well. 



Masen Moravec, SS, Floyd Central HS

A well-built athlete standing at 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, Moravec offers offensive prowess with plenty of bat speed within a simple, right-handed swing. The Floyd Central product has strong rotational capabilities that translate to some pull-side, in-game power and an exit velocity of 98 mph this winter. Moravec offers defensive versatility, a primary SS that can play multiple infield positions with arm strength (86 mph INF), along with possessing the athleticism (6.85 60) to move out to the outfield if needed. 


Alex Schuler, SS, Borden HS

Schuler looks the part of a next-level infielder with an athletic, long-limbed 6-foot-2, 185 pound frame. Schuler can pick it in the infield, showing fluid footwork to go along with soft hands and enough arm strength to stick on the left-side at the next level. The Borden HS product has a clean right-handed swing that works uphill - offering power potential when you combine the path with his long-levered frame that he has begun to tap into for Borden HS this spring (.527 avg / 11 2B / 4 HR). 



Landen Smith, SS, Greenwood HS

A projectable, 6-foot-2, 170 pound infielder with tons of athleticism. A quick-twitch type athlete that translates to quick bat speed at the dish, Smith has an uphill bat path that should allow him to blossom into some power potential at the next level as he continues to mature and adds strength. The athleticism translates to the dirt, as the long-limbed SS shows the ability to range with quick feet and ample arm strength (89 mph INF). There is some rawness to his overall actions in the infield, however Smith undoubtedly possesses the athleticism to play at the division one level and could likely fit the mold of a utility-type athlete at the next level.
