Ohio Insider: Top Overall Summer/Fall Showcase Performers

Since the conclusion of the Ohio High School season in June, we have been blessed with the chance to scout so many talented prospects throughout the Buckeye State. There have been 20+ showcases since the end of May and we have seen a plethora of talented arms, bats, gloves and athletes.

TJ Brock RHP / SS / Cincinnati Country Day, OH / 2018

Event Attended: Top Prospect Games
Scouting Report: A two-way prospect. An athletic kid with a long-limbed, thin frame that will support added strength. An electric arm talent that competes and has obvious confidence in his ability on the mound. Ball comes out of his hand well normally pitch in the 87-91 mph range, and we’ve seen as high as 93 mph. Spins a very sharp, 12/6 breaking ball. Puts good spin on the offering, giving it depth as it drops off the table late in the zone. Hasn’t had the need to show his changeup often when we’ve seen him but it looks to be an above average offerings and will come in handy at the next level. As a position guy who picks it well in the infield and it comes as no surprise he has the arm to play the left side. At the plate he has a quick bat and works through an all fields approach.
Outlook: Brock’s could be an early impact guy off the bump for the Buckeyes. An upper 80s to low-90s guy presently who projects for more as he is far from his ceiling physically. At what capacity he is used as a position player could play a large factor in what role he settles into on the bump.
