Today, the Prep Baseball Report Mississippi scouting staff takes another look at a few more quick hits, observations and revelations from Wednesday’s Class of 2019 North Showcase.

+ 2019 RHP Grant Johnson (Hernando HS) displayed quality body control in his bullpen session working from multiple arm slots. Johnson was able to repeat delivery well while commanding the zone with multiple pitches. Fastball was thrown 79-81 mph and was up to 83 mph but showed solid arm side run. Flashed multiple off speed pitches including a slider that had short late action at 70-71 mph.

+ 2019 C Alex Frillman (DeSoto Central HS) has a long and lean frame at 6-foot-3, 185-pounds. The right-handed hitter flashed a simple approach at the plate creating easy bat speed that created line-drive/ground ball contact and an exit velocity of 87 mph. Frillman also made strong and accurate throws second base during the catcher workout with pop times of 1.97, 2.01, 2.09.

+ 2019 RHP Gabe Moore (DeSoto Central HS) was up to 82 mph with solid arm side run, working from a high-¾ slot and long, loose arm stroke. His curveball flashed depth, while change showed fading action. Displayed a controlled delivery that allowed him to command the zone. At 6-foot-5, 190-pounds , there is still room for Moore to added strength to his already projectable pitcher’s frame

+ 2019 OF/2B Stephen Wolf (St. Joseph Catholic HS) ran a 7 60-yard dash, threw 84 mph positional velocity and found barrel during BP. The right-handed hitter flashed a flat path with looseness that created line-drive/ground ball contact to the pull side and an exit velocity of 84 mph.
