Today we begin our player analysis from the Northeast Prospect ID hosted at the Ripken experience in Aberdeen, MD. Over the course of the next week we will be releasing the positional analysis articles with detailed scouting reports on each player in attendance. We shall also identify top performers in each positional category along with a younger talent (2018 and younger) as a Future Watch if applicable.
