The Arms

Ethan Armstrong 3B / RHP / Garden City, MI / 2026

Showed composure on the mound erasing a leadoff single with a double play ball and then striking out the next 2 hitters faced.

Jason Bedol RHP / North Farmington, MI / 2024

Report: 6 foot righty with projection on the mound. Works the same arm slot consistently with a mid 80's FB and a low 70's breaker. Settled in after an inning on the mound and got outs in his 2nd inning on weak contact by hitters.

Justin Brown RHP / Northville, MI / 2024

Report: Lean frame at 6-2/180 with projection. Upper 80's FB T89 paired with upper 70's curve producing spin rates over 2400 on both pitches.Deceptive change at 80 MPH with low spin rates. High upside arm that is able to hold velo throughout starts.

Carson Custer RHP / 3B / Grand Rapids Christian, MI / 2024

Report: Physically developed right-hander with the makings of a power arm. FB up to 91 keeping hitters off balance with a sharp curve and sweeping slider. Flashed a changeup with good arm speed. Some of the best present stuff out of the 2024 class in Michigan.

Brennan Hill LHP / OF / Grosse Pointe North, MI / 2024

Report: Projectable 6-3 lefty with a lower arm slot that has proven difficult for hitters. Mixes a slider and curve out of the same arm slot and ran the FB up to 88.

The Two-Way Prospects

Parker Brzustewicz 3B / RHP / Orchard Lake St. Marys, MI / 2024

Report: 6-3 frame that oozes projection on the mound. Really good feel for breaking ball working 72-74 with 2300 spin rates and had hitters fooled with the pitch striking out 7 in 3 innings. FB was up to 86 with more velo in the tank as he adds strength.

Aidan Donovan RHP / 1B / Orchard Lake St. Marys Prep, MI / 2024

Report: Two-way player with a wide stance at the plate. Primary pitcher but swings with intent in the box and does not get cheated. Showed some pop with a 94 MPH exit velo and went yard during BP. On the mound has good present stuff that projects for more. Upper 80's FB sat 87-89 with a horizontal breaking curve 73-75 and a changeup 77-78.

Sits 86-88 with the fastball throwing it out of over the high 3/4 and side arm slot. Breaking ball is two planed at 72-74.
