2020 Ontario Future Games Trials - Quick Hits

Cameron Chee-Aloy OF / SS / Neil McNeil, ON / 2022

Report: Chee-Aloy is a 5-foot-11, 155-pound athletic, wiry outfielder. During the event, he ran a 6.87 60, moving comfortably in a straight line displaying body control and lightness on his feet. In the outfield, Chee-Aloy works through the ball and effectively utilizes his body, getting his arm out front easily and allowing his advanced arm speed to produce velo’s up to 88. At the plate, it’s twitchy as he rotates well (21.0 RA) and produces impressive hand speed (23.5 HS). He uses the whole field with line-drive type contact and will adjust to velo and hit for avg down the road. He’s an exciting player with ability in numerous areas of the game.

Keegan O'Hearn OF / 1B / O'Neill CVI, ON / 2022

Report: O’Hearn, a 2022 outfielder, was one of the better surprises of the day. It’s a large 6-foot-3, 185-pound frame with present strength and room to expand and add more mass. He’s a 7.43 runner who was up to 83 from the outfield, but it was at the plate where he really impressed. He creates leverage and works directly to the baseball with bat speed and force. With bat path adjustments (4° AA) and additional strength it’s easy to envision serious lofty power from the left-side. O’Hearn’s progression will be interesting to follow over the next couple of years as the offensive ceiling is high.

Cameron Gurney C / SS / Pauline Johnson, ON / 2022

Report: Gurney, a 6-foot, 180-pound left-handed hitting catcher had one of the better showings over the two-day event. Behind the plate, Gurney worked in the 1.91-2.00 range, impressing with the strongest arm at the event, getting off throws up to 81. There’s some stiffness, but he has come a long way and is still new to the position. At the plate, it’s a compact swing with a fluid path through the zone in which he works on-plane. He shows the ability to drive the baseball to the large part of the field with occasional home run type power to the pull-side. He profiles as an offensive catcher who can throw it out of the crouch.

Carter Krawchuk RHP / SS / St. Francis, ON / 2022

Report: 6-foot-1, 165-pounds, Krawchuk is a slender, lean right-handed pitcher. The delivery has improved, and the control has as well as he showed the ability to locate his fastball in his pen. It's an athletic body with a whippy arm. During his pen, he sat 86-88, topping out at 89. He pairs his fastball with a high spin (3000+ at times) 11/5 shaped curveball with bite and swing & miss potential. His changeup displays some arm-side run and is a usable third pitch. The Purdue commit has come into his own and is one of the better arms in his class.

Kurt Barr RHP / SS / St. Anne Catholic, ON / 2022

Report: Barr, a physically immature 6-foot-1, 150-pound right-hander, has made a significant leap since we saw him late last year. The arm works with low effort up to 88, sitting 86-88, pounding the zone. There’s some feel for a curveball that displayed 11/5 shape and depth, but there’s some inconsistency with the offering right now. With strength, specifically in his lower half, Barr could take another step forward and be an attraction for college coaches.

Greg LaChance SS / OF / Anderson Collegiate Vocational Institute, ON / 2022

Report: LaChance, a 5-foot-10, 155-pound infielder quietly had a very good day. He doesn't jump out at you with tools but will be a solid player with an all-around game. In the infield, the actions are clean with correct footwork, sound glove actions and transfers, and he works with a short arm circle up to 82 across. From the right side of the plate, there's bat speed (70.5) and he impacts the baseball at an ideal angle (15° AA), producing sneaky power (3.99 PW & 88 EV). He's a 7.19 runner as well. LaChance is an interesting follow out of the Toronto Mets organization.
