Maryland Scout Blog: DeMatha Catholic & Archbishop Spalding

Kyle Campbell
Maryland Scouting Director


The Maryland High School Scouting Blog provides insider information and scouting notes from the PBR Staff. This running blog will feature information on a wide variety of uncommitted talent as well as updates on committed and ranked players, as well as draft prospect. We will provide a wide range of information, including player evaluations, velocity, pop times, home to first times, and more. This running blog is continuously updated throughout the high school season and then also throughout the year and you will see what boots-to-the-ground really means.

State Scout blogs are one of the most highly viewed pages on the PBR website. It is a tribute to our never ending quest of discovering talent across our area of coverage and our boots-to-the-ground approach to scouting.

So what is better than being in a scout blog? Having a PBR profile to connect you with. Find our next event near you. Maryland Event Schedule

Archbishop Spalding

Caleb Estes SS/2B Archbishop Spalding 2022 (Maryland)

Athletic, projectable frame with plenty of more room to fill out. Hits from a balanced, square stance at the plate. Small leg kick load and gets good hand separation. Stays behind the ball very well with a quiet head and loose swing. Gets good extension past contact with a two-handed finish. Ripped a shot to left field and went 2-for-3 in the game with a double, a walk, and scored a run hitting in the top of the order. Athletic and moves well in the infield with clean actions.

Thomas Joseph OF Archbishop Spalding 2021 
Strong, physical body type and projectable frame. Hits from a balanced, square stance at the plate. Smooth back load and minimal stride. Showed quick hands and bat speed through the zone. Strength and power present. Drove one deep to left field but outfielder made a great catch to rob a for-sure multi-RBI double. Continues to get better every time we see him. Body is really starting to fill out and looks really good. Will make an impact at the next level in the middle of the lineup with out a doubt.

Noah Mrotek RHP Archbishop Spalding 2021 (Maryland)

Strong, projectable frame. Started the gam on the bump for the Cavaliers working three and two-thirds innings allowing four runs (one earned), on four hits, two walks, and struck out eight in the ballgame.

Was able to repetitively come up with big strikeouts in key situations to limit some damage. Works downhill and showed really quick arm speed through release. Loose arm and throws from a low to mid three quarters slot with light effort. Lands square to the plate and gets over front side well.

Long, athletic, projectable frame. Came on in relief to get out of a jam in in the seventh. Worked a third of an inning allowing a base hit and got a slow-comeback to end the threat.

Smooth stride down the hill and strong lower half drive. Quick arm speed and throws from a mid to high three-quarter slot with some effort. Really nice looking arm with huge upside.
