Uncommitted Spotlight: Versatility A Major Plus For Cavanaugh

Drew Cavanaugh C / SS / Stoney Creek, MI / 2020

ROCHESTER HILLS - Talk about versatile. That is Drew Cavanaugh.

Not only does the Stoney Creek sophomore play catcher and shortstop, but Cavanaugh has the ability to switch hit.

“At the age of 10 my dad wanted me to be a switch-hitter,” reflected Cavanaugh, a left-handed hitter up to that point in time. “I’ve really developed from the right side. I have very good exit velo there now. Last year it was 80 and now it’s 85. My exit velo as a left-hander is 89-90.”

It has Cavanaugh drawing college interest, with invites to seven camps over the winter.

“I’ve been sending emails and calling coaches,” the 19th-ranked sophomore in the state said. “I’ve sent videos and gone to showcases. I went to the PBR Arsenal event at Detroit Country Day a couple weeks ago. It’s good exposure to see what Division I players look like.”

The 6-0 175-pounder believes he sees one every day in the mirror.
