Senior Winter Standouts
February 24, 2021
The Hotlist will spend the next few weeks looking at standouts from winter events. First up, members of the 2021 class.
Josh Algarin, OF, The King's Academy, CA
Algarin consistently shows his tools every time out, which include above average speed and arm strength. He recently ran a quick 6.75-second 60-yard dash on a cold morning and made accurate 85 mph throws from the outfield. He’s been up to 89 before. He had a high exit velocity of 92 (95 in the past) and when he cuts down on his swing and eliminates some of the attack angle, he shows the ability to move the ball around the field and put pressure on the defense. He has sneaky pop and when he is more polished in picking the right counts, he can jump a pitch and do damage. He also has a max bat speed of 78.3.
