OTHERS TO WATCH: RHP/1B Aaron Roberts (Desert Oasis HS, NV) overhauled his delivery in the middle of the season and became more consistent in throwing strikes with his fastball that ranges from 90-96 mph. He also has a serviceable breaking ball at 74-76 and 78-80 changeup. It’s possible a team could interested in his right-handed power as well, though he struggled at the plate down the stretch. His teammate, RHP D.J. Jefferson, is projectable with a fastball up to 93, though his secondary stuff is light. SS Peyton Cole (Palo Verde HS, NV) offers intrigue, though his commitment to an LDS mission impacts his signability. 3B Jesse Pierce (Arbor View HS, NV) has projectable power and versatility on defense. However, he is slated to begin summer school at Arkansas and seems intent on getting to campus. RHP Bryce Robison (Palo Verde HS, NV) has a three-pitch mix with a fastball up to 91. RHP Dutch Landis (Liberty HS, NV) did not pitch this spring after his transfer waiver was denied. He is a bit of a dark horse, but reports have him up to 93. SS Josh Rolling (Bishop Manogue Catholic HS, NV) has projectable power and is considered signable.
