Prospects Scout Day: Quick Hits


Ryan Sattz
Scout, PBR Ontario

On Wednesday, September 28th, the PBR Ontario staff remained in the Durham Region to host the Ontario Prospects Scout Day at Heritage Park in Ajax.

Another program we've held an annual Scout Day with several years now, the Prospects organization has continued to get stronger and stronger over the years and that was evident on Wednesday. The event featured 40+ players, including 25+ arms and it was loaded with talent from the 2024 and 2025 classes, along with some young 2026s who also impressed.ย 

Our post-event coverage concludes below as we break down five of the biggest standouts from the event.

Markus Henry 2B / RHP / Henry Street, ON / 2024

Henry, 6-foot 170 pounds, displayed all his tools at Prospects scout day. Has put on noticeable size since we last saw him. In the field the feet moved well, covered a lot of ground with his long legs, made some tough plays to his glove side. The swing was level, lots of barrels to the pull side with extension of the barrel.

Adam Carmichael RHP / 3B / Sinclair , ON / 2024

Carmicheal, 5-foot-11 155-pounds, had an impressive day on both sides of the field. Flashed a good round at the plate working gap to gap, found a lot of barrels with some pop to the pull side. On the mound the delivery was aggressive, the arm was whippy with a 3 pitch mix (FB,CH,CB) that he can locate for strikes.

Ryan McGivney C / RHP / Sinclair, ON / 2024

McGivney, 5-foot-10 165-pounds, had one of the more impressive days in Ajax, ON. Has taken big strides since we last saw him. Behind the plate McGivney showed quick transfer out the glove, arm was accurate with a short action. At the plate the bat was level, lived mostly pull side with feel for the barrel. On the mound the arm was long and loose, flashed a few nasty sliders and a fastball that topped 84.

Ko Abe RHP / OF / Prospects, ON / 2026

Abe, 5-foot-11 130-pounds, was a name to look out for all day long. In the field the footwork was clean, stayed low and compact with quick transfer out of the glove. In the batter box the bat was compact, kept the hands above the baseball working up the middle. Looked comfortable on the mound, flashed a 3-pitch mix with good feel for all his pitches.

Jack Barry 3B / 1B / Uxbridge Secondary School , ON / 2024

Barry, 6-foot-3 200-pounds, was a name that popped up throughout the day. The size stands out with a built athletic frame. In the outfield the feet worked well towards the ball, had some carry behind his throws with a top velo of 82. At the plate the swing was aggressive, lived mostly pull side, quick twitchy lower half that stays on time with his upper body.
