This week, Prep Baseball Report's premier summer underclass event will get underway, for the first time taking place at LakePoint in Georgia. The Future Games features over 400 of the top uncommitted 2021 and 2022 players from across the country at one place and is one of the most heavily scouted events of the year, with all 30 MLB clubs represented and well over 160 college coaches coming each year to follow four days of action.

Players take part in a workout day followed by three days of games. Teams are selected regionally by PBR's local scouting staffs, with Team Mid-Atlantic being made up of the top players from Maryland, Delaware, DC, and Virginia. We will unveil this year's team in the coming week in these profile spotlights, continue to follow us for all of our coverage in the coming weeks.

SCOUTING REPORT

 

Mid-Atlantic Challenge 11/4/18

A physical presence at 6-foot-1, 220-pounds. Jones hits from a balanced, square set up at the plate. Has a simple short lod with no wasted movements and stays in a strong hitting position. Hands are free at the plate and direct, showing quick twitch and extension through contact. Showed mature ability to drive the baseball for a young age. Has the makings of a middle of the order type threat. Shows sound defensive skill, with a short arm action and working through the ball sound. still has room to make himself into a better defensive player, but that should happen to fit into a nice corner outfield slot down the road. Exciting prospect to follow.
