Michigan Insider: Summer Showcase Breakout Performers

Since the conclusion of the Michigan High School season in June, we have been blessed with the chance to scout so many talented prospects throughout the great state of Michigan. There have been 16 showcases since the middle of June and we have seen a plethora of talented arms, bats, gloves and athletes.

Below we would like to highlight nine of the breakout performers for the Summer of 2017.

Jace Matkin OF / RHP / Southgate Anderson, MI / 2018

Event Attended: Unsigned Senior Games
Scouting Report: 7/18/17
6-foot-2, 195 pound well developed athletic prospect looks like a college safety. Had one of if not the most impressive performance on the day. Showcasing elite speed during the sixty, transferred that speed to game play running down several balls. He's capable of playing all three OF positions but may be best suited for CF or LF. At the plate crushed several balls in BP, and during game play drove a couple balls in the deep left center power alley.
Exit velo: 98 mph
60 time: 6.41
OF velo: 81 mph
Outlook: Matkin has the opportunity to make a lot of noise this spring. He possess a ton of tools with a man body already. His rare combination of power and speed makes him a highly sought after prospect.
