Mid-Atlantic ProCase

The PBR Mid-Atlantic ProCase is a kick off to identifying the top prospects in the 2019 draft class. Once the 2018 MLB draft takes place in early June scouts across the country turn their attention to the 2019 class. This event will feature the top 2019 draft prospects in Pennsylvania & surrounding states, as well as a select number of 2020 prospects.

The Super 60 Pro Showcase in February has been a staple of the Prep Baseball Report's pro coverage over the last 15 years. The PBR Mid-Atlantic ProCase will add to our pro coverage and give scouts the first look into the 2019 draft class. The Super 60 has become one of the more well attended pro showcases on the circuit, simply due to the caliber of players in attendance. We have seen more than 100 professional scouts year after year at the Super 60 and the ProCase will be no different, bringing all of the draft potential candidates from our area into one location to showcase their abilities in front of the professional scouting community. This will also give our staff insight into possible invites for the 2019 Super 60 Pro Showcase in February. 

WHEN: Sunday, Ocotober 28, 2018
WHERE: Keystone State Baseball Academy - 662 Ditz Drive, Manheim, PA 17545 (Home of Prep Baseball Report Pennsylvania)

Scouting Report

2016 PBR Future Games - Team Pennsylvania

6/15/18 Finally got the opportunity to move behind the plate for his high school team as a junior. Projects as a run producing right-hand bat at the next level. Solid defender will only continue to improve with more repetitions behind the plate. Sub-7.0 runner could also see early time in the outfield post high-school.

2/12/17 6-foot, 190-pound right-handed hitter showcased the best raw power of any hitter in attendance over two days. Starts from a balanced, slightly open stance and initiates his swing with a short, lift-and replace stride. Gets to extension regularly and shows present power to the pull side with the ability to also drive the opposite field gap. Ran a 6.95 60-yard dash and showcased pop times of 1.98-2.10 on throws of 74 mph from the crouch. Solid defender has the athleticism to make move to third base, first base or corner outfield at the next level if need be.

8/4/16 6-foot, 185-pound right-handed hitter impressed with a well-rounded skill set. Advanced strength for a player his age with strong forearms and a short swing path. Flashed 93 mph bat exit velocity and ran 6.99 60-yard dash on evaluation day. Laced a triple to the wall in game action and squared the baseball routinely against advanced velocity all weekend. Displayed solid defensive skills behind the plate (75 mph arm strength, 1.98-2.07 pop times) and the ability to play both corner infield positions as well.

5/25/16 Physically advanced right-handed hitter displayed ability to stay inside baseball and to drive opposite field gap. Also turned on an inner half fastball for single to left (2-for-2 on night). Primary catcher showed a developing skill set as a third baseman. Plenty of arm strength and capable of making necessary plays at his secondary position.

5/18/16 Really physical build with especially strong forearms and thighs. Starts from an open stance, strides to square, and hits against his front side well. Exhibited easy juice when he smoked a double over the center fielder's head. Showed very good plate discipline on this day, working three walks and taking a number of borderline fastballs in plus counts that he would not have been able to drive.

4/13/16 6-foot, 185-pound right-handed hitter displayed advanced abilities at the plate. Starts from square stance with high hands load. Used short swing path to barrel two singles in first two at bats. Got tied up on fly out in final at bat. Registered 4.76 turn on second hit. Primary catcher played 3B on this day.
