Saturday night some of our staff stopped by the Team Ontario facility to get a look at some players as teams continue to ramp up ahead of Spring Training. We were able to see many players across from the 2022 - 2024 classes including several college commits and some intriguing uncommitted talent as well. 

Our staff takes a look at five players who caught our eye Saturday night. 

2023 LHP/OF Matthew Marsh (Niagara University)
We had our first look this year at 2023 Matt Marsh, a recent Niagara University commit. Although there were no radar guns with players slowly progressing through their programs, the body is looking stronger than we saw in the fall. Now 6-foot-1, 185-pounds, the left-hander continues to move well on the mound with athleticism. We had Marsh up to 86 mph at the Jr. Future Games and he will look to top that on Monday at the New Year Open. Marsh is the No. 11-ranked player in Ontario’s Class of 2023.

2024 RHP/OF Julian Robertson
Report: Robertson jumped out in 2021 with his projectable 6-foot-5, 180-pound frame and a fastball we’ve seen up 83 mph. The Team Ontario right-hander also recently reclassified to the Class of 2024. Aside from his size and fastball, he continues to get better with his offspeed stuff. There’s lots to like from Robertson on the mound and our staff is intrigued to see if he’s able to take that next step on the mound in 2022. A 2024 to keep tabs on this next year.

2022 OF Brett Brannon (Antelope Valley College)
Brannon jumped out on Saturday with his size and swing. The Antelope Valley College commit stands at 6-foot-3, 220-pounds and the ball jumps off his from the left side where his swing plays to the pull side. When he’s on time at the plate he’s shown the ability to tap into his power. With the bat being the carrying tool in his arsenal, it will be interesting to see if his added weight and strength transition to his in-game performance.

2023 1B J.P. Tibbits
Report: Tibbits is another left-handed bat that showed well on Saturday night. The uncommitted 2023 has a mature approach at the dish and the hit tool really took a step forward in 2021. The juice continues to come as Tibbits has added more muscle throughout the winter. The bat will need to continue to produce as the 6-foot-3, 225-pound first baseman looks ahead to the college level.

2024 LHP/OF Vincent Bouchard-Wright
Report: 2024 LHP Bouchard-Wright was a name our staff wasn’t familiar with ahead of Saturday’s workout but impressed with a clean, easy delivery from the left side. At 5-foot-11, 155-pounds there’s still plenty of growing to do but his athletic movements and effortless delivery show there’s more in the tank. An interesting underclass arm we’re looking forward to seeing outdoors this spring.
