Quick Hits - Future Stars Fall Showcase / Catchers & Outfielders

Dan Jurik
Scouting Director - Pacific Northwest

Over the weekend we were at the pristine Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex for a 1 day event with 2024-2026 prospects from both Washington & Oregon. 

The event featured a player workout in the morning with 60 times, batting practice and defensive evaluations. After that, we transitioned into a controlled scrimmage to pitchers could face off against live hitters. 

PBR events events such as this provide players with the opportunity to build their profile with the most up-to-date information and video footage. All players in attendance receive an online profile with their verified statistics, player report, picture and video. Additionally, all subsequent stories written about a prospect will be linked to the player’s profile, ultimately creating a one-stop shop for recruiters.

Showcases help identify which prospects have asserted themselves towards the top of their class as well as who might be one of the next youngsters to emerge onto the scene. They also serve as potential identifiers for invite-only events such as our Future GamesJunior Future Games and West Coast Games

Future STars Fall Showcase


The standout performance on the day came from ‘24 C/RHP Easton O’Neal (West Valley, WA). A 6’1, lean athlete with the ability to switch hit and stick at the catching position. He showed well from both sides of the plate with clean catch and throw skills on defense. Also struck out all 4 batters he faced on the mound with a consistent FB/SL combo. 

One of the youngest prospects at the event, ‘25 C Carter Stewart (Jesuit) doesn’t let his youth stop him from being a vocal field general. Plays the game with noticeable toughness and already has a mature understanding of how to handle pitchers. Features a short, compact stroke from the left side. Stewart wasn’t the only youngster who stood out behind the dish. Just a ‘26 grad, C/RHP Carsten Lemon (Tualatin) already has a strong, durable frame and plays with a ton of confidence. The bat speed really stands out for his age and he puts everything together at the plate with a smooth, rhythmic swing. Also showed his arm strength on the bump with a solid 3 pitch mix. 

No stranger to PBR in the last year, ‘25 C/RHP Isaac Pfeifer (Tualatin) had a great workout and it translated to the game as he produced multiple hits once live ABs started. A consistent receiver with promising actions out of the crouch. He can also pound the zone with a heavy FB with an emerging CH. 

Lastly, ‘24 Jase Randall (Tigard) showed a quick release and accurate throws down to the bag on defense. A wiry athlete at 5’10, 140, he gets the most out of his frame at the plate with an athletic load/forward move with a slight uphill swing that creates lift to his pull-side. On the bump, Randall showed a long, continuous arm path with a 3 pitch mix.


Starting off with the fastest player at the event,
‘24 OF Ezra Vice (Westview). A twitchy athlete with room to develop and get stronger. Vice moves well in the OF with his straight line speed and has the added bonus of swinging it from the left-side. Has the potential to make a jump with his game quickly as he gets more reps and seasoning. 

‘24 OF Campbell Smith (Lake Oswego) has shown well in-game before and continues to offer a strong combination of present size and upside. A well built athlete at 6’2, 175. He looks to have the trajectory of developing into an exceptional defensive OF prospect with the chance to be a power threat at the dish. 

‘24 OF Finley Smith (Lake Oswego) once again showed a consistent skill-set as a left-handed hitting OF. Another wiry framed athlete, Smith has the chance to get significantly stronger down the road. Presently he moves very well with sound defensive actions for the OF and a fluid swing with classic left-handed loft. 

‘24 OF/1B Nolan Miller (Sheldon) handled double duty in both the OF and at 1B. Has a strong profile as a L/L prospect regardless of which position he ends up in long-term. He’s a sturdy athlete with a compact frame and current strength to work with. Stays tall in the box and gives himself leverage to work with as he shows the tools to develop into a solid power threat. 

‘25 Keller Kirschmann (Wilsonville) came out in the defensive workout with a ton of intent as he attacked his opportunities and cut it loose with a short, compact arm path. At the plate, attacks with an uphill swing and keeps hands tight to body. 

Our 2nd look at ‘25 OF/LHP Lincoln Berg (Olympia, WA) was another impressive one. The smooth swinging lefty bat has exceptional barrel control and a natural feel for controlling the strike zone. He also fared well against live batters and his pitching arsenal gives him the chance to consistently change speeds.
