Prep Baseball Report

Updated Class of 2019 Player Rankings Released

By Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting

Following the completion of the high school season, as well as two summer showcases (one on each side of the state), it is time to roll out our first summer update to our class of 2019 rankings. This version of the list jumps from 5 to 10 as we slowly add the top underclass prospects statewide. The next update will likely come following the completion of two more events (again, one on each side of the state), plus the Pennsylvania Travel Baseball State Championships in August.

Top 10

1 Troy LaNeve PA Pine-Richland 2019 OF Vanderbilt
2 Thomas Schultz PA Mount Carmel Area 2019 RHP Vanderbilt
3 Kellan Tulio PA Emmaus 2019 LHP  
4 Tyler Kehoe PA Red Land 2019 OF Louisville
5 Eric Grintz PA Downingtown West 2019 C  
6 Adam Grintz PA Downingtown West 2019 RHP  
7 Sammy Siani PA William Penn Charter 2019 OF  
8 Jared Payne PA Red Land 2019 C Mississippi State
9 Cameron Weston PA Cannon-McMillan 2019 RHP  
10 Colten Smith PA Germantown Academy 2019 RHP

While the list is short, and intentionally so, the talent is not. Of the 10 prospects currently in the rankings four have already made commitments to major Division I programs with several others likely to do so in the near future.

Outfielder Troy LaNeve (Pine-Richland), an alternate for the USA Baseball 15U team, and Thomas Schultz (Mount Carmel Area), a 6-foot-5 right-hander have announced plans to be teammates at Vanderbilt. Along with Red Land outfielder Tyler Kehoe (Louisville), an athletic left-handed hitter with a loose swing, three of the top four prospects in the rankings have made college commitments.


Twins Eric Grintz and Adam Grintz from Downingtown West enter the rankings at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively. Eric, a 6-foot, 185-pound right-handed hitting C/3B and Adam a 6-foot, 165-pound RHP/OF will both represent Pennsylvania in the PBR Future Games in August.

Kehoe's Red Land teammate 5-foot-10, 170-pound catcher Jared Payne, a Mississippi State commit, is a sound defender with some present power in his right-handed swing. 6-foot-1, 165-pound RHP Cameron Weston (Canon-McMillan) sits in the low 80s with command of a sharp slider. 6-foot-1, 170-pound RHP Colten Smith had early success as a freshman for Germantown Academy in the rugged Inter-Academic League. The trio enter the rankings at No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10 respectively.
