Here’s another physical right-handed-hitting outfielder on the rise this winter, OF Josh Polubinski (Oswego East). After showing well in early February, Polubinski backed it up with another loud offensive round, while improving all of his numbers in less than a month's time. He cut his 60 time to 7.13, down from a 7.44, and he topped 88 mph from the outfield also up from last year, and his peak exit velocity of 101.1 mph was additionally up a couple ticks. Polubinski is a 6-foot-3, 195-pound prospect with a broad-shouldered, physically impressive stature. He does not get cheated at the plate and he repeats his swing well despite the violence he flashes throughout.
