As the PBR scouting staff is hard at work reviewing each player’s performance, writing scouting reports and uploading data into the vast player scouting database of PBR, we will look at a few quick hits on standout players from the event that made significant noise.

+ Adam Goree, LHP, Barbe HS(2017)
The uncommitted left-hander showed off his pitchability on Saturday with a fastball that ran up to 87 mph, showing an improved breaking ball and advanced feel for a changeup. He worked fast, attacked the strike zone and threw all three pitches for strikes.

+ Haden Erbe, RHP, Crowley HS(2016)
The 6-foot-3 right-hander continues to improve his stock this fall. He possess a strong, athletic, projectable frame and a fastball that touched 92 mph. He struggled with command at times, but he flashed quality angle and life on the fastball when it found the strike zone. In addition, he flashed the ability to spin a quality breaking ball with spin, and sharp break.

+ Josh Smith, SS, Catholic(BR) HS(2016)
The LSU commit showed off his outstanding defensive ability throughout the day with soft hands, fluid footwork making challenging defensive plays almost look easy. The left-handed hitter showed a simple, flat stroke with a line-drive approach that finds barrel consistently.

+ Cain Castille, C, Lafayette HS(2016)
The unsigned catcher cemented himself as the premier catch and throw guy that remains on the open market in Louisiana’s 2016 class. An effortless, quick and easy transfer with arm strength and a pop time of 1.85 seconds. The physical right-handed hitter had an exit velocity of 87 mph with strength at contact and also posted an impressive 6.94 60 yard dash.

+ Bryce Scioneaux, RHP, Destrehan HS(2018)
The number 2 ranked player in Louisiana’s 2018 class showed a clean, in-line arm stroke, a fastball that ran up to 86 mph and regular effort. He also showed advanced feel to spin a breaking ball with spin and depth. Works with good tempo, attacks the strike zone with angle on the fastball and pitches with confidence.
