Shooter's Super 60 Standouts

Another stellar Super 60 is in the book, and the MLB Draft year has officially been kicked into full gear. The invite alone meant each of these prospects are widely regarded as some of the best in class, and with strong performances, some took their draft status to another level. Below are a collection of position players and pitchers (and a two-way!) who had loud performances and left their mark on the 2021 Super 60.


The Headliner

Braden Montgomery OF / RHP / Madison Central , MS / 2021

Montgomery cemented himself as one of if not THE premier athlete in the 2021 class with a stellar all around performance. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder has a pristine model-esq frame with thicker strength in the lower-half along with room to continue filling out a frame that is not yet fully developed. He began the day by running a 6.9 60-yard dash on a slow track before producing 100-plus mph exit velocities from both sides of the plate with intent to work uphill through the zone. His athleticism tested in elite categories throughout, and it carried over into each phase of the workout including 99 mph throws from the outfield. Perhaps most intriguing was his work on the mound, and after going through the entire workout as a position player, the big right-hander was still able to pump 91-93 explosive fastballs with quality feel for secondary. Sizzling through the zone, the pitch produced ride and run with a higher effective velocity thanks to an astounding 7.04 ft. extension where he nearly scraped the ground through release. The ball jumps out of the hand on the fastball, and he also exhibits feel for subtracting on the changeup (80-82, 1851 RPM avg.) which allowed for some sinking action while profiling well off the heater. While the breaking ball was not in mid-season form, its traits and characteristics showed high-level promise as he threw it with fastball intent (75-77) including some tighter spin and overall aptitude. A Stanford recruit, Montgomery might be the most intriguing prospect in the class given his upside as an athlete draft-wise, but propensity for Cardinal commits to make it to campus. Regardless, he was clearly the name that every person in attendance walked away talking about, and will have MLB scouts tracking his performance closely throughout the spring.
