Quick Hitters: Top Prospect / Punisher Prospect Scout Day

Matt Payne
Associate Scout, PBR North Carolina

PBR summer evaluations are rolling right along.  This past weekend, PBR was on hand for a combined scout day with Top Prospect Baseball and the Punisher Prospects.  Each team's players had the opportunity to go through a full pro-style workout prior to playing in controlled scrimmages. 

Today we take a look at some of the players that made an impression on our scouts.  The quick hitters below give you a feel for some of the players to follow.  We will post evaluations on the players in attendance in the coming week. 

To see the full list of statistics gathered during the workout, for every player in attendance, CLICK HERE (Top Prospect Baseball) and HERE (Punisher Baseball).
