Michigan Insider: Top 2017 Uncommitted Two-Way Prospects

With the Summer season coming to an end and the 2016-2017 high school sports season as well as fall ball getting underway, we would like to take a look at some of the top uncommitted prospects at each position.

Today we are starting with the top uncommitted senior two-way prospects in Michigan. We will look to create a few top uncommitted lists each week, as you can see by our 2017 Player Rankings there are numerous talented prospects available.

Dalton Riddle, Buchanan
Ranked: 39th in Michigan’s 2017 class
Scouting Report: Riddle has a strong 6-foot-1, 189-pound build. He stands upright and uses a simple load. He has a short swing with a slight downhill plane while staying through the hitting zone with his barrel. His exit velocity was 91 mph and he ran a 4.61 home-to-1st. In the outfield, he fields the ball out front while taking a controlled approach and working behind. His position velocity from the outfield was 83 mph. On the mound, he throws from a high-3/4 arm slot with a long, loose arm action and quick arm speed. His fastball had running action at 81-84 mph. His slider had late, sharp 11/5 action that showed good depth and sat 73-76 mph. He threw his changeup with fastball arm speed and it had late sinking action at 74-77 mph. His slider is a swing-and-miss pitch and he shows the ability to repeat his delivery.
College outlook: Dalton is interesting two-way prospect in the state. There is a legitimate question as to what is his best position. Projects as a corner OF but can play CF. Strong throwing arm and a pop in the bat. On the mound he uses a 3-pitch mix with his slider being his outpitch. His fastball is 81-84 mph with late life along with a sinking 73-76 mph changeup.
