The Hotlist: Newcomers To The PBR Draft 100

By Nathan Rode

Last week, a final update was made to the PBR Draft 100. While the top three spots remained intact, there was plenty of movement among the rest. There were also several players to join the top 100. Below is a baker’s dozen worth of prospects that weren’t in the two previous renditions of the list—an update in mid-April and the initial list in December. They are listed in their respective PBR Draft 100 order.

Adam Laskey, LHP, Haddon Heights HS, NJ
Laskey has a lean, athletic frame at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds. He jumped to No. 32 in the PBR Draft 100 and had a strong following this spring. A Duke recruit and likely tough sign, Laskey can pitch in the low 90s, losing some velocity late in the game. He has projection remaining and should be able to hold that better as he matures physically. His fastball has some run to his arm side and he generally pitches down in the zone. At a start in early May, he didn’t record any outs in the air and the only hits that were elevated were a couple of doubles. He isn’t afraid to attack hitters with his fastball, but mixes in a short-breaking slider at 78-82 and shows feel for a changeup with some fade.
