Madison Preseason I.D.: Outfielder Analysis


By Steve Nielsen
Scouting Supervisor - Wisconsin/Illinois

The final showcase of our preseason circuit was held on March 10 in Windsor at GRB Academy: the Madison Preseason I.D. It’s annually one of the most heavily attended events on our calendar and typically gives us a look at some of the top talent in the entire state in the process. Over 180 prospects made it out and reiterated the fact that the state of Wisconsin baseball is better than ever.

Today, we’ll continue dissecting this event in depth with the group of outfielders, after looking at the day’s catchers yesterday. Previously, we offered rapid analysis on the Madison I.D. inside our Quick Hits post and took a look at all of the measured data gathered with our Statistical Analysis.

When it comes to this group, the sophomore from Mondovi takes the top spot. Uncommitted left/left prospect Tanner Marsh showed a smooth, easy, and loose bat with some natural pop off the barrel. He’s a strong and athletic talent and is a top-20-ranked player on the state’s overall 2021 board, making him one of the most sought after sophomores in the class.

The rest of the top-10 below is made up primarily of 2020s, including on-the-rise Franklin standout Mitchell Alba. Alba is a projectable 6-foot-3 prospect with arm strength, athleticism, and a confident and loose bat. He, too, is uncommitted, but that might not be the case for long.

Continue on below for full scouting reports on each of the outfielders who took reps at the Madison Preseason I.D. back in March. Stay tuned tomorrow for the infielders, who are next to go under the microscope.
