Over 40 players from around the Old Line State from the 2020-2024 graduating classes participated in this year's MoCo Fall Review held at Damascus High School. Players showcased their skills in a pro-style workout, batting practice, and bullpens in front of the PBR scouting staff. Below are some quick notes and thoughts on several players that stood out.

 

QUICK HITS

Bishop McNamara 2022 OF/C Cam Jones Jr. had arguably the best day all around at the event and it began early as he blazed a 6.62 60-yard dash for the event’s top time of the day. Jones Jr. followed up the impressive run showcasing a strong arm from the outfield during defensive testing posting an 80 mph velocity with throws on a line and showing carry. He was equally as impressive at the plate later in the workout showcasing some strength and power to the gaps. I really like his approach at the plate as he uses the whole field with ease and stays short to the ball with fast bat speed and some explosiveness. Really nice to see the added power and muscle he has put on since we last saw him during the spring season at La Plata. 

Another outfielder we couldn't wait to see again was Century’s 2021 OF Conner Breitenbach. Like Jones Jr., Breitenbach was among the leaders in all categories measured beginning with a 6.83 60-yard dash. From the outfield, Breitenbach recorded a 78 mph velocity and at the plate he recorded an 84 mph exit velocity. The strong 5’11’’, 175 pound Breitenbach showed a quick, compact swing with pop driving balls gap-to-gap over the course of two impressive rounds of BP.

In the infield, Walt Whitman 2021 3B/SS Eli Putnam and Atholton 2021 SS Nick Varda both showed athleticism defensively and some advanced capabilities at the plate. The highly projectable 6’3’’, 180 pound Putnam showed present strength at the plate during BP and recorded an event best 88 mph exit velocity. Varda was smooth at short during the defensive portion of the workout and sprayed line drives gap-to-gap during BP. He also showed some pop at the plate recording an 83 mph exit velocity during testing.
