The Fall Review West was held on Saturday, October 22nd at Saint James School in Hagerstown, Maryland. 20 players from across the state and Virginia were in participation for the event playing in front of the PBR Maryland scouting staff on a windy day.


110Damascus HS 2018 Ethan Wentzlaff (pictured) showed well during the workout, having one of the best 60 yard dash times with 7.01 and exit velocity getting up to 92. Wentzlaf has an athletic frame and shows nice bat speed at the plate while showing the ability to cover ground in the outfield with nice carry on his throws.

Colton Bare (Boonsboro HS) is another 2018 to impress during the Saturday workout. A lankier frame that pitched at 80-83 with normal effort. Bare has a frame with room to fill out and nice arm speed that looks like there is more in his tank.

Westminster HS 2017 Justin Cotter pitched 78-82 mph and is an interesting uncommitted senior with some projection...2018 Ryan Cloude (Massaponax HS), was another interesting arm with his cross body delivery pitching from the stretch only. Was up to 82 mph during his bullpen on the day and as he gets more consistency with his breaking ball is a tough arm against right handed hitters.

2019's TJ Kalagher (Boonsboro HS) and Brady Drawbaugh (Saint James HS) both had nice workouts on the day with their projectable frames with room to grow and sound fundamental foundations both in the field and at the plate. Will be ones to check out as they fill out and increase their strength.

Uncommitted senior OF Eric Picucci (Midlothian HS, VA) had a nice workout on the day showing a quick bat and consistenly getting good barrel on the ball during his BP session. Athletic frame that showed some arm strength from the outfield.

Tyler Retherford (Damascus HS) also showed some strength at the plate, putting in the best the exit velocity of the day at 93 mph. Another Boonsboro HS 2018 Cole Rinehart showed pull side pop at the plate from the left side with an exit velocity up to 89 mph.
