Under Armour Classic Preview: GRB Rays

By PBR Wisconsin Staff

The GRB Rays are headlined by 2019 left-handed hitting catcher Nathan Stevens (Waunakee HS). Stevens committed to Arkansas earlier this year and showcases a lively bat from the left-side with strong catch and throw skills out of his 5-foot-11, 160-pound frame. Splitting time with Stevens behind the plate will likely be Connor Manthey (Columbus, 2019). Mantey is a strong 6-foot-1, 190-pounder with low 2.0 pop times and a strong bat that will flash pop.

The arms throwing to these catchers are lead by righties Trajan Prochnow(Rio, 2018) and Cedric Girard (Oregon, 2018). Girard is a long lanky frame that projects and has seen his fastball up to 85 mph with a hard curveball. Prochnow is a stonger build on the mound at 6-foot, 185-pound showcasing an 82-83 mph heater with a 67-69 mph curveball.

Dylan Krumrei (Oshkosh North, 2019) is a freshman who could likely anchor the infield at shortstop. He shows a big arm for his age (80 mph) and projects to play the left side. At 6-foot-3, 165-pounds already, he could likely grow out of a shortstop position as his at continues to show well.
