Next 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.

SCOUTING REPORT

6/18/19

 

Top Prospect Games East

Clements is 6-1 with a strong athletic frame that still has projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a leaned back athletic stance, strides on line, smooth load back, has some rhythm to swing. Hips rotate and he maintains some lower half balance after his weight shift. Keeps hands inside, gets barrel to ball quickly, works slightly uphill to contact with good extension through the ball, arms are extended and strong at contact. Swing generates line drives and he showed good approach, working gap to gap, doubles power there with home run power to pull side, exit velocity was 90. Behind the plate, quick clean exchange, throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a short arm action, catcher velocity was 75 and pop times were 1.96-2.08. Showed accuracy on his throws. Ran a 7.20 60 yard dash.

Strong frame at 6-foot-2. Can play either corner outfield, corner infield, and has the ability to help behind the plate. Offensively shows an athletic setup from the right side with a small leg lift and strides closed. Hands are set back and load to a slight arm bar. Bat gets on plane early and has slight uphill tilt to it. Has shown some gap to gap power in his at bats and the ability to battle late in the count. Is a solid bat in the middle of the order for Matoaca and has the ability to drive in a lot of runs with guys like Everhart and Carmichael hitting in front of him.

 

 

9.16.17:  Clements has an athletic frame and is a natural blocker and receiver behind the plate. Threw a 2.35 in-game throw on the corner of the bag, showed a quick clean release, pop times will improve as arm strengthens. Bat has some quickness and batspeed, has the potential to develop into a very good two-way catcher.
