New England Insider: Young Prospects To Keep Eye On

Since the conclusion of the High School seasons in the Northeast, we have been blessed with the chance to scout so many talented prospects throughout the region. There have been 20 showcases since June and we have seen a plethora of talented arms, bats, gloves and athletes.

Below we would like to highlight 13 of the Young Prospects To Keep An Eye On.

Jack Ambrosino RHP / 1B / South Burlington, VT / 2020

Event Attended: Summer Top Prospect Games/Pitcher Analysis
Scouting Report: 5-foot-11, 165-pound right-handed pitcher. We have seen Jack pitch a number of times now and he is trending appropriately. The frame projects and the arm works nicely, quick and long out front. Fastball touched 83 mph with arm side run to it. The spin pitch is 63 mph, and needs a clean up. Wraps the ball on the backside and slows ball hand down. Easy fix. The changeup is 75 mph with a chance to be a special pitch for him. The delivery is online with his feet, pitches off of the top of the rubber, needs to be balanced and in front of the slab. The glove side comes across the face of the hitter, adding deception. The slot is ¾ and fast. Good follow as he ages and matures. Should be a division 1 arm when all said and done.
Outlook: Aggressive right-hander who showed well at all our events. Has a very good arm and maybe the best young arm in Vermont. The secondary stuff needs to continue to develop but he is trending appropriately.
