Future Games Workout Day: Quick Hits (Mississippi)

Ronald Sims

Mississippi Scouting Director

Today Team Select participated in a Pro-Style Showcase at Grand Park outside of Indianapolis in front of well over 150+ college coaches and pro scouts from all around the country. Team Select is made up mostly of uncommitted 2019s and 2020s from Texas and Mississippi. Here are some notes on the position players from the workout:

The day started off with corner infielders where 2020 CIF Turner Swistak  (Oak Grove) showed well. He has a lean frame, moves well at third, and projects to be a solid defender. Offensively, he shows a feel for the barrel with line drives from gap-to-gap. 2019 3B/RHP Landon Rascoe (Hattiesburg) showed solid arm strength with carry across to first base, recording a positional velocity of 87 mph.

Capping off the day was the catchers. 2019 C/1B Colin Frederickson (St. Stanislaus) is continuing to develop behind the plate and is more projectable at first baseman but showed a solid left-handed swing consistently finding barrel with back spin to pull side. 2020 C/3B Austin Embrey (Russell County, Al) showed well behind the plate with soft hands and clean transfers. He also showed feel for the barrel with solid bat speed for age.
