Starley has been a staple at all PBR events and has posted the highest or near high event pop times at all. A sub 2.0 pop is the norm as a physical catcher, he gets his feet into the throwing position quickly and his throws off and online with accuracy. Have seen Starley since he was 10 years old and have a really good feel for his ability. A power bat that posts high 90’s EV’s routinely and has hand and bat speed to go along with a LD bat and pull power. Able to reach the fences in all directions, when his man strength kicks in and he’s close to it, balls should be flying out to LF. Also a 7.0-7.1/60 runner for a catcher, Starley has surprising speed for the position. Hitting in the middle of a talented Crimson Cliffs order, look for Starley to have a big year. 


Starley continues to show impressive metrics with the swing with a short compact and tight hitting stroke. The hand speed and bat speeds of 22.3 and 77.3, along with an EV showing of 99.1, Starley shows potential straightaway to pull power and enough power to drive the wall to the oppo field. Featured the best pop times and arm velos of the event at 1.93-2.01 and 76. The throws were strong and accurate and for a big kid, he ran a 7.14/60. Look for a breakout spring for Brex in the middle of the Mustangs order. 


Starley is strong and put together at 6-1 195 and has really refined his body since the spring. Gets after it in the weight room and has a solid work ethic and wants it at the next level. His mobility, agility and quickness has taken a step forward in the past month or so. A Future Games invite, who had a minor surgery on a cyst (tailbone) that he is 100% recovered from, but just enough to keep him from participating at LakePoint, and thus his looks have been curtailed a bit this summer. However at the West Coast Games, he showed on line clothesline throws with something on them and he got out of the shoot with near avg pop times. Offensively he showed well in the workout, while driving balls to both gaps and deep to the pull side. This is a kid that needs to be followed and kept an eye on, as he is physically there and quick with arm strength and present strength to drive the baseball on the offensive side. 


Starley improved his exit velo as well as his pop time from the last event and will be a top 10 ranked player in the class, when we put the ‘23 class out. The bat is the calling card and he whistles the bat with a fluid fast bat and the ball jumps. One of the top 2 power bats in the class, and is a big time performer in games, as he routinely squares up balls and drives the ball to the big part of the field. The pop time improved to a 1.98-2.05 and he was on target for the most part. The ball comes off the bat with ease and doesn’t have to sell put for power, as he posted a 5th best 98.06 EV, coupled with 73.3 mph bat speed. Also ran a 7.16/60 for a big kid and as a catcher that will do. But the bat is the tool. 


Starley had as good a BP as I’ve seen from him. I have known Starley since he was 8-9 yrs old, as he lived in my hometown and has played with my son since they were young. But it’s his bat that gets your attention and not the connection to me, which does give me more time to evaluate him and provide a strong track record for colleges to follow up on. The bat is live, with a smooth fluid fast stroke. Brex shows bat speed and natural lift into a whippy high two hand finish. A class best and 3rd highest overall event exit velo of 95.5, Starley has the ability to not only hit for power, but can make AB-AB in game adjustments to breaking balls and use the whole field, while hitting for straightaway to pull power. Strongly built with a powerful linebacker type build, the sophomore C/1B will be a strong recruit for any D1 program. Any program that hasn’t started conversations with him, better hurry, as he is not only gonna be a name in Utah, but the entire region as well.
