Prep Baseball Report Louisiana takes a look at 5 Uncommitted Underclassmen, who are must follows for the 2015 spring.

Daniel Cabrera, 2017, OF/LHP, John Curtis HS- A major impact type talent with a 5-foot-11 170 pound frame, Cabrera has already made plenty of noise on the Louisiana High School baseball scene.  On the mound, he displays a loose whippy arm, with ball exploding out of the hand with little effort, pitches 84-87 touching 88.  In addition to the fastball he shows a quality breaking ball with 11/5 shape, tight spin, and plus depth.  Shows an advanced feel and command for the baseball.  Left-handed hitter with smooth swing, extraordinary rhythm, timing and presence at the plate.  Consistently barrels balls at an eye-opening rate, with strength at contact, and backspin.  Hits to all fields, swings and misses rarely, and has present pull-side power.  Smooth athlete with good defensive instincts and tracking speed.  The game almost seems to slow for him at times.

Nick Ray, 2017, OF/SS, Jesuit HS New Orleans- At 6-foot-2 180 pounds, Ray came on the scene over the summer playing with the Louisiana Knights.  Ray is physical specimen with a Pro-ball type frame.  Plays both SS and OF right now, but most likely projects to the OF.  Solid OF with good instincts, good tracking speed, and a solid throwing arm. Right-handed hitter with a good bat path, raw developing power, and shows advanced hand-eye coordination.  The overall package is still raw, but the advanced athletic ability makes Ray a high-end prospect to watch as he enters his sophomore season.

Tyree Thompson, 2016, RHP, Edna Karr HS -6-foot-3 180 pound frame from New Orleans, extremely long, lean and projectable.  He will pitch 84-86 and has been up to 88.  Shows a decent feel for a breaking ball with 11/5 shape (71-73), with average depth and spin.  There is little to no effort in delivery and the arm action is loose and long, but the overall product is still extremely raw.  Thompson is a well above average athlete with tremendous upside and as he physically matures velocity and stuff should increase.

Aaron George, 2016, RHP, Ouachita Christian HS- A 6-foot-5 210 pound right-hander, George has progressed nicely through his career.  He will sit 85-87 and has touched 89 with severe angle towards the plate.  Breaking Ball is still a developing pitch, it spins well, has depth, but velocity is not where it needs to be yet.  Also flashes a decent feel for a changeup. 

Cody Marshall, 2016, SS/2B, Fontainebleau HS- A 5-foot-8 160 pound middle infielder, Marshall is a fast twitch athlete with a feel for how the game should be played.  Will most likely be a 2nd baseman moving forward, takes good angles, quick hands, quick release with arm strength, and has range to his left and right.  Left-handed hitter with flat, short stroke and quick hands.  Hits to all fields, not much pop, but rarely swings and misses.  Good runner, gets down the line at 4.1-4.2
