The Unsigned Senior Showcase gave college coaches the opportunity to get another look at a number of talented prospects in the Class of 2014 still searching for the right college fit. Following is a review of the top middle infielders in attendance.

Josh Pittman2B/SS Josh Pittman (Central Catholic HS)

Pittman is a sound defender capable of making the routine play and with the athleticism to make the difficult plays. He has an extremely quick release and the ability to make throws from a number of arm angles. Pittman has the ability to play the ball on the move and has shown a 76 mph arm across the diamond. The right-handed hitter utilizes a square stance with a short stride and load phase to his swing. Pittman squared the baseball routinely in his round of batting practice and used all fields well with an 81 mph bat exit velocity.

Calvin Salazar2B/RHP Calvin Salazar (Cheltenham HS)

Salazar is a 5-foot-9, 160-pound two-way prospect that topped at 81 mph off the mound. He showed athletic actions and the ability to play the baseball on the move with throws of 78 mph across the diamond from his middle infield position. Salazar utilizes a square stance and no stride at the plate. His flat bat through the hitting zone allowed him to consistently barrel the baseball to all fields during his round of batting practice with a bat exit velocity of 80 mph.
