By Jacob Gill
Pennsylvania Assistant Director of Scouting

Today's article on the top five prospects in our updated 2017 rankings is the fourth and final installment leading up to today's release of the entire list of 225.

[Note: these rankings are now reflected on player pages or in the overall list]

5. Zach McCambley, RHP, Pocono Mountain East
Strong 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame with room to add more strength. Good arm speed produces an upper-80s fastball with tight 12/6 curveball and solid change-up. Area Code Games participant. Committed to Coastal Carolina.

Stoner4. Nick Stoner, RHP/IF, Elizabethtown Area
Projectable 6-foot, 170-pound frame with athletic delivery and long, loose arm action. Has command of a three-pitch mix that includes an upper-80s fastball that has touched 91 mph, a hard curveball with slider-like tilt and a sinking change-up. A good athlete, the right-handed hitter is also an above average runner with some feel for the barrel. Committed to Bloomsburg.

Lancellotti3. Joe Lancellotti, RHP/OF, William Penn Charter
Strong 5-foot-11, 205-pounder who participated in the East Coast Pro Showcase and Area Code Games. Has shown an ability to hold his upper-80s to low-90s fastball (that will touch 94 mph) for multiple innings. Also flashes a solid curveball with depth and a promising change-up. Not to be overlooked, he also possesses a power right-handed bat with a simple, balanced approach at the plate. Committed to North Carolina.

Muntz2. Shane Muntz, RHP/C, Malvern Prep
A 6-foot-3, 250-pound build doesn't usually scream projectability, but there may still be some with Muntz, once he focuses solely on pitching, be it at the collegiate or professional level. Moving to the mound full-time and training as a pitcher, instead of a two-way guy, could bring a velo jump for his fastball that is already touching 91 mph with a fairly low-effort delivery. Also has flashed a potential out-pitch curveball. In the meantime, his arm strength translates behind the plate and he has big raw power. Participated in the East Coast Pro Showcase and Area Code Games. Committed to Wake Forest.

1. Chris McMahon, RHP, West Chester Rustin
Also a participant in the East Cost Pro Showcase and Area Code Games, McMahon had a very consistent summer and fall, regularly settling in the low-90s with a fastball that occasionally touched 94 mph early in his outings. He has a quick, clean arm and a lean 6-foot-1, 185-pound that can still add strength. Committed to Miami.
