The Virginia/DC Scout Blog provides insider information and scouting notes from the PBR Staff. This running blog will feature information on underclass prospects, unsigned seniors, committed players, and draft prospects. We will provide a wide range of information, including player evaluations, velocity, pop times, home to first times, and more. This running blog is continuously updated throughout the year as we continue to cover the commonwealth and DC to create more awareness of the players across the state.

State Scout blogs are one of the most highly viewed pages on the PBR website. It is a tribute to our never ending quest of discovering talent across our area of coverage and our boots-to-the-ground approach to scouting. So what is better than being in a scout blog? Having a PBR profile to connect you with. Find our next event near you.

Virginia/DC Event Schedule

On Tuesday, April 10, Colgan hosted Potomac in a Cardinal District matchup. Potomac won the game with two runs in the seventh inning. Here are our notes on players from the game.


Ryley Johnson OF 2020 (Radford)
Johnson has an athletic frame with some projection left to it and hits from the left side, open athletic stance, short stride on line, smooth load back, has good rhythm to his swing. Has some bat speed and gets barrel to contact quickly. Slightly uphill swing path with extension through the ball, line drive swing. Showed good knowledge of the strike zone and a whole-field approach. Speed is an asset for Johnson, getting up the line in 4.13 on a groundout despite pulling up a step or two early. Covers a lot of ground in center and gets good breaks on balls. Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a loose arm action and what projects to be at least an above average arm. Has a chance to be an elite defender in center who hits near top of the order with a high average and the potential for extra base power.


Ethan Laird RHP/SS 2018 (Shenandoah)
