By Andy Sroka
Illinois and Wisconsin Assistant Director

On Sunday, Feb. 6, Prep Baseball Report will host the 20th edition of its prestigious, flagship event: the Super 60 Pro Showcase. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than 300 players have been selected in the MLB Draft, including 25 first-round picks and 26 second-rounders.

We started our march toward the Super 60 earlier this week by highlighting the prospects set to join us, shining a light on their impressive player profiles that they've groomed through their high school careers, leading them to this point, vying for the attention of the pro scouting community.

Scouting Report


Cincinnati commit. Has a fast twitch athletic wiry frame body. Broad shoulders with high waist. Powerful upper torso. Durable hips and legs. Starts from the far-left side of the rubber. Has a short side step start that follows with a middle of belt separation. Short hand pump generates energy to his follow through. Displays a ¾-arm slot, high tuck leg kick, slight drop and drive to get to front side. Arm is quick. Front side opens up early and glove side tends to balance him out in his delivery. He clears his front side to allow his sweeping arm to release point. Has some hyperactive actions that he uses to his advantage in a positive way. Quick worker and full throttle approach. Arm strength is present and feel for a sharp CB with  bite that at times shows SL actions. Stanifer, as he matures could develop a true SL with a Changeup that has late fade. The athleticism is solid and his arm is pure. Solid projection to future is he will throw even harder.

FB: T92. 90-92 mph. (Max spin 2430;  Avg 2218)
