The PBR Maryland Winter Trials were held on Sunday, December 4th at Athletic Performance Inc in Gambrills, Maryland. Players from around the state and Northern VA and Pennsylvania were in attendance to perform in front of the PBR Maryland staff and a local college.
Travis Sankovich (pictured) of Laural Highlands HS in PA has one of the better workouts on the day, showing improvement in almost every statistical category since his last performance at the 2015 Elite Prospect Showcase for PBR PA. Sankovich showed sounds actions with quick release from the infield with no wasted movements and velocity of 84 mph. He also got up to 85 mph from the left side with his exit velocity. Shows bat speed at the plate that gets a bit pull happy at the plate.
Noah Cerrud-Osmer is a strong framed (6-foot-1, 180-pounds) athlete at Walter Johnson HS. He ran a 7.25 60-yard dash. He showed a short swing at the plate with some extension through contact and strength with a 91 mph exit velocity.
Keep an eye out for 2020 Ethan McCormick of Archbishop Spalding. The young infield and pitching prospect showed sound actions in the infield with clean hands and exchange. His swing was short to the ball with some extension through contact. On the mound, McCormick got up to 81 mph on the mound with a short and quick arm action. McCormick plays with API Baseball over the summer.
Staying at Spalding, 2018 Justin Pelletreau has shown a lot of improvement since his last performance a year ago at the PBR Maryland Underclass Trials. Pelletreau lowered his pop time to as low as 2.06 and showed nice balance at the plate with some extension through contact.
2019 IF/RHP Xander Waddell is an interesting two-way prospect from Old Mill HS. Waddell was very intriguing on the mound with a shorter arm action and quick arm speed. Breaking ball had depth and showed potential. Fastball velocity was up to 81 mph.
2018 John Narvaiz has a projectable frame and was up to 79 mph with a big breaking ball with sharper action and later break. One to check out in the 2018 class.
