8/08/23

Coming off a successful spring where he found time on Deerfield’s varsity roster, as a freshman INF/OF Easton Newman (Deerfield) is an athletic multi-positional follow in the 2026 class. The 5-foot-10, 155-pound prospect posted a 6.94 60 time before demonstrating soft, athletic hands defensively from the infield with a strong arm to pair across the diamond (84 mph). With similar actions from the outfield, he posted an 86 mph bullet on his best throw to home. Offensively, Newman swings a quick, direct right-handed barrel with an aggressive approach and stable bat-to-ball skills to pair.
