Midwest Future Games Profile: Tanner Cantrell from Houston HS

Midwest Future Game 2013 SLIDE

Tanner Cantrell, 1B, Houston HS
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Cantrell impressed with his ability at the plate and at first base.

Offensively, Cantrell uses an explosive lower half and strong hands to generate quick bat speed through the zone and drive it with pull side power. 

At first base, the strong-bodied Cantrell has good footwork around the base and sure hands. He also showed some skill at third base during games, with quick reaction to the ball, and keeping everything in front of him.

Cantrell reminds us, and a few college coaches of Drew Bridges with his ability at the plate. Bridges recently was drafted by the Yankees in the 20th round and was a member of Team Missouri for the Class of 2013 Future Games; as well as being ranked No. 6 in Missouri and No. 43 overall.
