The Western Wisconsin Open took place on July 14th at Carson Park in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

The 2014 Western Wisconsin Open saw the emergence of 2016 outfielders Zach Gilles and Adam LaRock both of whom are signed with Central Michigan and Iowa, respectively. Today we will take a look at who raised their stock at this year’s event.

LHP Trevor Olson headlines the list. Olson is a projectable lefty already up to 84 mph with his fastball and showed a feel for a changeup and curveball as well. Olson’s performance at the event earned him an invite to the PBR Future Games in Indiana.
