Body: 5-9, 160-pounds. Medium frame that is starting to fill out with some present strength. 
Hit: RHH. Slightly open and upright in stance. Starts load early utilizing a slow gather and forward stride. Rhythmic hands.  Compact and balanced stroke that worked on a steep-level path. Showed good feel for the barrel and used the whole field.

Uncommitted. Five-foot-6, 145-pounds. Medium frame with wiry strength in the upper half with noticeable strength in the lower half. Started off running an eye opening 7.07 laser-timed 60-yard dash before taking to the hitting wheel where he uses a toe-tap trigger with a short stride to initiate swing. Showed some feel for the barrel during on-field BP where he drove some balls into the gap. Defensively he shows adequate footwork when charging and round balls while playing through to release. Arm strength was fair showing accuracy to home plate. On the mound Gerber utilizes a dip-and-drive delivery where he uses a strong backside drive to gain ground down the mound with a compact arm in the back through to a 3/4 release point getting extend out front. Fastball showed hints of run with his two-seam fastball shows significant movement. Slider shows late diving action while the curveball was tight with 10/4 movement.
