2020 Burlington Scout Day - Quick Hits

Evan Bertoia C / Nelson, ON / 2023

Report: One of the better players on Burlington Scout Day was 2023 catcher Evan Bertoia. He’s not your prototypical catcher’s frame - but he should be. Standing at 6-foot, 160 pounds, he has a lean, athletic body that should project well. Behind the plate he showed twitch, arm strength, and carry on his throws. Offensively he’s inconsistent with his swing right now - but he’s also young. It’s also worth mentioning that he didn’t struggle with a wood bat, driving multiple baseballs to his pull-side gap. Bertoia will be an interesting player to watch going forward.

Carter Wall LHP / 1B / N/A, ON / 2022

Report: Whenever you see a lefty get on the mound, there’s some curiosity. We actually saw Wall at first base, and he showed clear arm strength from his defensive position, so the curiosity mounted again before he got on the mound. Once he got there, it was an easy 80-82 with arm-side run, and feel for a sharp slider that acts more like a cutter. The arm is loose, the body is lanky, and as a low 80s 2022 arm, he could be something of a steal for college coaches.

William Russell SS / RHP / Ancaster, ON / 2024

Report: The biggest surprise of the day was 2024 William Russell. One of the youngest players at the event, he stands at 6-foot, 165-pounds, it’s athletic, there’s feel for everything he does, and overall he might have been  one of the better players that day. Everything is raw right now, but give him a chance. If he plays his cards right, with some time he might bloom into one of the more interesting players in the province.

Kieran Glassford LHP / 1B / Assumption Catholic Secondary School, ON / 2024

Report: Another 2024 kid out of the Bulls program to keep an eye on is Kieran Glassford. At 6-foot, 180 pounds, the body is a bit soft right now, but he’s in the strike zone with all his pitches, he has rhythm, tempo and feel, and he’s big. The velo is low 70s right now, but as a 2024 you can’t really knock him for it. With added strength and size, Glassford could end up being a solid lefty when all is said and done.

Tyler Greig OF / LHP / Burlington Central, ON / 2022

Report: It’s not an overly imposing body, but uncommitted 2022 Tyler Greig shows twitch and bat speed at the plate. Mechanically he’s pretty sound, but there were times where the ball was a bit louder than usual off his bat. Greig didn’t get cheated in BP, but also didn’t try to get too big, either. Not to be outdone, he’s pretty good on the mound, to0 from the left side. His numbers are fairly standard across the board, but with a bit of size and strength, he should develop into a fairly decent hitter, considering he’s already got whip through the zone.
