Verbally committed to Northern Illinois.


6-foot-1 195-pound, right-handed hitting/throwing two-way player, athletic frame, carries strength well. Salomonson saw little trouble working off of an 86-88 mph fastball that touched 89 mph, played with above average action in the hitting zone, cut at times early in game, progressed to sinking action later in contest. He works with a high front side, long high ¾ arm action and drives the baseball down in the zone while mixing a 73-75 mph curveball. Then on Saturday, Salomonson played shortstop and hit second against Pro Player Canes (Belo) and then hit leadoff later in the day, same position. He made hard contact in five of his at-bats going a combined 3-for-5 with a pair of singles, a double, a walk, a HBP,  two runs scored, an RBI and one stolen base. Path works uphill looking to create leverage, favors pull side but showed a two strike approach flaring one of his singles to right field, while the other was barrelled down the third base line in game one. In game two, he led off the game with a double that hit half way up the left field fence at Fenway. He also flew out deep to right/center twice - one for a sacrifice - and popped up to short, present lift in swing. High-follow uncommitted 2020.
