9/17/22

Angel Castro (De La Salle, 2025) inserted himself into the mix as a prospect to keep close tabs on in the class of 2025. Castro has a confident aura about him with a relaxed presence at the plate with controlled movements, yet the ball still explodes off the bat when he is on time. His swing is easy and on plane and projects to have power to all fields down the road. He made hard gap-to-gap contact throughout his batting practice. Defensively he has calm, clean actions and quick exchange. The arm is loose and throws play true with accuracy on the bag. His top pop time was 2.12 on the day.  

4/23/22

Uncommitted. 5-foot-9, 200-pound, thick-bodied, strong, right-handed hitter. DH’d and hit in the three-hole as a freshman. Was leading the team in home runs coming into the game. Relaxed and aggressive look in the box with fluid pre-pitch rhythm. Takes controlled, intentful swings with pull-side tendencies. Strong hands with advanced bat strength for his age. Finished 1-for-4 with a line-drive single to left-field. Also, was on the barrel with authority right back to the pitcher for a 1-3 groundout in his last at-bat. 2025 right-handed bat to follow moving forward.
