The Five: 5 MIF Prospects from PBR Scout Days

Matt Payne
North Carolina Director of Scouting

"The Five" is a weekly blog that highlights high-performing athletes from across North Carolina.  PBR Scouts use information gathered from PBR events, PBR Scout Days, and PBR Tournaments to put together the weekly list of five players.

This week “The Five” continues to look at players from North Carolina’s PBR Fall Scout Days.  Throughout the fall PBR had the opportunity to see several organizations from across the state go through a pro style workout.  Featured this week are left hand pitchers who turned in good performances during their bullpens.  Of the guys highlighted today two are from the 2022 and 2021 classes with one being from the class of 2020.  As usual all five are still open for recruitment.
