Weekend Notes

+ Hayden Cantrelle, SS, Teurlings Catholic HS(2017)
The 5-foot-10 uncommitted switch-hitting middle infielder was solid in a double-header on Friday. He showed great energy throughout the day, making several difficult defensive plays on the run, as well as making the routine play with the proper rhythm and timing. Showed a flat stroke and loose barrel from the left-side hitting several hard line-drives on the day.

+ Nick Webre, C/OF, Teurlings Catholic HS(2017)
The 5-foot-10 uncommitted left-handed hitter showed his big hit tool on Friday hammering numerous balls in double-header action. Showed advanced timing with a flat stroke, strength at contact and a true feel to hit. Logged numerous extra base hits on the day and even hit a towering homer that just missed foul. In addition, he showed to be a better athlete and runner than expected, as he played a solid defensive right-field, flashing solid arm strength.

+ Austin Kirkpatrick, C, Teurlings Catholic HS(2016)
The 6-foot, 155-pound uncommitted catcher showed to be one of the premier defensive catchers in Louisiana’s 2016 class on Friday. He showed loose, easy hands, hips, and actions with solid arm strength, as well as, a quick, easy transfer and release. The right-handed hitter also had a nice day offensively hammering a ball to left-center that had nice backspin and carry.

+ Blayne Enlow, RHP, St. Amant HS(2017)
In a 3-inning relief outing, the uncommitted 6-foot-3 right-hander was lights out. His fastball sat 88-90 mph with heavy life, and natural sink. Breaking ball showed good 11/5 shape, extremely tight spin, and depth at 77-79 mph. Also flashed an above average changeup with fastball arm speed and late life. He worked with outstanding tempo, attacked the strike zone with all three pitches, and put away hitters quickly with his secondary stuff.

+ Blair Frederick, LHP, Brother Martin HS(2016)
The 6-foot, 180-pound left-hander and LSU recruit flashed big projection, even though he didn’t have his best stuff. In his first inning of work he showed right now stuff with an 85-88 mph fastball, clean, loose, easy arm action and a wipe out slider at 78-80 mph. Struggles to repeat the delivery and arm slot consistently, and relies heavily on his high-level athleticism to figure it out pitch to pitch which caused him to struggle the remainder of the game.

+ Keagan Gillies, RHP, Brother Martin HS(2016)
The 6-foot-8 Tulane recruit didn’t have his best stuff over the weekend, but at times showed his high-ceiling ability. Velocity on his fastball was inconsistent touching 89 mph early, but pitched anywhere from 82-86 mph. Struggles to consistently repeat the delivery, arm slot and hand positioning from pitch to pitch, but when things sync up he shows dominating stuff.
