On Saturday, February 10th, the PBR Mid-Atlantic ProCase will add to our pro coverage and give scouts the first look of the new year into the 2018 draft class along with select 2019 and 2020 grads

The Super 60, held in Chicago at the beginning of February, has become one of the more well attended pro showcases on the circuit, simply due to the caliber of players in attendance. We have seen more than 100 professional scouts year after year at the Super 60. Similarly, the ProCase will bring draft potential candidates from our area into one location to showcase their abilities in front of the professional scouting community. 

The event will be held in Henrico, VA at the TSI Training Center, which includes a full sized infield that will allow for open hitting and plenty of room for defensive evaluations.

Since its inception in 2005, the Prep Baseball Report has evolved into one of the country’s biggest and most respected independent scouting services, with a singular focus of providing comprehensive coverage in every state. Now, more than 850 colleges and pro scouts subscribe to the Prep Baseball Report services.  We take great pride in providing the most thorough and comprehensive high school baseball coverage in each state.

We continue our breakdown of the talent who will be in attendance.

Scouting Report

5.24.17: Incredibly athletic player with a lanky frame that he can still grow into. Actions at short are smooth, he fields with a wide base and quick soft hands, exchange is good and he throws with a short quick arm action and a strong arm. Good lateral range was on display in game, getting to ball two steps onto the second base side and rifling an off-balance throw on target with his body headed in the wrong direction. Still could use more consistency on the routine plays, but he has the athleticism to make plays few others can. At the plate, bat continues to develop but has potential, bat speed and strength were on display when he tripled to right, letting a ball get deep and just flicking his wrists to drive it into the corner. 

2.11.17:  Ryan is 6-1 with an athletic frame, hits from the right side from a slightly open slightly crouched stance. Short stride on line and short load back with a bit of a wrap, good rhythm, good hips and some balance throughout swing. Short level path, quick bat with some extension through ball. Line drive hitter with projection for more power, exit velocity was 93, showed good approach. At short, good rhythm, fields with wide base, quick clean footwork and soft hands. Quick exchange, plays through ball well, throws from a three-quarters arm slot with a short, quick arm, infield velocity was 87. Ran a 4.43 home to first.

10.31.15:  Hit from a crouched stance that stood open.  Smooth load back with a stride that gets on line.  At times rushes to front side.  Average lower half turn that stays balanced.  Bat exit velocity of 80 mph.  Quick hands with a level approach to the ball.  Good extension.  Line drive hitter with gap power.  Threw from a loose, high ¾ arm slot with some accuracy.  Soft hands with athletic footwork that played through the ball.  Quick, clean exchanges.  Athletic player with smooth range.

2.15.15 Hit from a tall stance with flexed knees. Was loaded on the backside to start. Had a minimal load back that was smooth. Took a short stride that was on line and had balance throughout the swing. Was confident in his ability to hit and had rhythm to match. Had good hands with average bat speed (79 mph Exit Velocity). Took a short path to the ball with good extension. Line drive stroke that is gap-gap. Can really hit. In the field, threw from a ¾ arm slot with a long, loose arm action with accuracy.
