2011 Southeast Underclass Showcase
2013 Top Prospects
- SS - 2013 - Flowery Branch, GA
The 6-1/180 DeVoe stood out defensively in both drills and at third base during the games with his athleticism and strong throwing arm. He has a simple, polished high average approach at the plate that squares the ball up consistently and enough present bat speed to drive the ball up the gaps.
- C - 2013 - Peachtree City, GA
Chaphe had the best combination of defensive tools and skills, hitting ability and physical projection of any catcher at the showcase. He's athletic behind the plate but the area where he might show the most potential is as a hitter at a premium position.
Christopher (Ryan) Peurifoy
- OF - 2013 - Peachtree City, GA
The 6-3/170 Peurifoy has a very nice, loose easy swing that stays short to the ball for his size and has nice leverage and extension through contact. It's interesting to think about the bat speed and power he might have when he fills out and is 6-4/200.
- OF - 2013 - Collierville, TN
Flowers ran a 6.95 but his best tool is his bat. He has a sound but aggressive hitting approach and really uses his hands well to generate bat speed and explode the barrel through contact.
- 2B - 2013 - Atlanta, GA
Surum had the best infield actions of any defender at the showcase, with a quick, balanced lower half, soft sure hands and a quick and easy release that really played well in game action. He'll have to gain more strength on his 150 lb frame to become an effective hitter but has the time to do so.
- C - 2013 - Marietta, GA
Wildermuth has very good present strength at 6-2/205 but remains agile and quick behind the plate and has the tools to catch at the next level. He's a left handed hitter and his strength helps him generate good bat speed with future power potential.
- RHP - 2013 - Graysville, GA
Parrish has a strong 6-2/195 body and a solid fastball/curveball combination on the mound, although he only topped out at 83 mph after being a steady 85-87 mph this summer. He has potential as a 2-way prospect with a nice right handed swing with power.
- RHP - 2013 - Woodstock, GA
White has a loose and projectable 6-1/160 build and good athleticism. He throws in the mid 80's now, topping out at 86 mph, with more velocity to come but his best pitch is a big, hard biting low 70's curveball that he has good feel for in the strike zone.
- 3B - 2013 - North Little Rock, AR
The 6-0/230 Pinney may end up as a 1B/DH down the road but there is no mistaking his offensive potential. He has a powerful left handed swing that combines contact skills with the ability to hit the ball over the fence.
- C - 2013 - Poland, OH
Andrews is another big, strong catcher whose best overall tool might be his bat and power potential. He has a ton of raw arm strength behind the plate but will have to continue to improve his skills and fundamentals defensively.
- RHP - 2013 - Oak Ridge, TN
The 6-2/160 Lane throws in the mid 80's but has a nice feel and command for his entire three-pitch mix. He works quickly, fields his position and has outstanding pitchability for his age. He should add more velocity as he gets stronger.
- OF - 2013 - Atlanta, GA
Freeman has impact speed and his 6.62 60 could have easily been sub 6.5 under more ideal running conditions. He's a rare right handed hitter/left handed thrower who has the beginnings of some bat speed at the plate.
2014 Top Prospects
- LHP - 2014 - Fayetteville, GA
Avidano is 6-6/190 with a loose and athletic build. He already has good feel for three pitches, including a fastball that topped at 83 mph, and is going to just keep getting better. He's also a two-way prospect as a power hitting first baseman.
- SS - 2014 - Hoschton, GA
Moseley already has advanced defensive tools at shortstop, highlighted by a potential plus throwing arm. He'll also be a potential 2-way prospect as he's already throwing 85 mph off the mound with the makings of a good curveball.
- C - 2014 - Duluth, GA
Helms is a young catcher with a very good combination of strength and athleticism, including 7.09 speed in the 60. He shows some present bat speed with gap power and flexible defensive actions with quick feet.
- 1B - 2014 - Mount Dora, FL
Simmons just turned 15 but has a very projectable 6-1/175 frame that looks even bigger. He generates present bat speed with lift and the ability to pull the ball hard and looks like he could have big-time power in the future as he gets stronger.
- C - 2014 - Marietta, GA
The 6-2/190 Rzudidlo's best tool is his bat, he has a smooth, fundamentally sound right handed swing that promises lots of power in the future. The tools to be a next level catcher are there but the skills still need some developing.
- C - 2014 - Pace, FL
The 6-1/195 Sweat opened eyes with a big home run in game action and has the strength and bat speed to keep developing as a hitter. His defensive tools and skills are also solid for a young catcher.
- MIF - 2014 - Charlotte, NC
Kennedy has very quick actions in the middle infield and runs a 6.97. He has a nice left handed swing and a good feel for hitting. But most of all, Kennedy plays like a gamer, with good instincts and plenty of energy on the field that will maximize his tools.
2015 Top Prospects
- OF - 2015 - McDonough, GA
Mike Cameron's son has all the tools you'd want to see in a 14 year old high school freshman. He runs under 7.0, already has some outfield arm strength and already shows gap power with wood despite his age. He's going to be a good one.
- OF - 2015 - Griffin, GA
Fuller's 6.54 on a very slow 60 track as a 14 year old is an eye opener, but speed isn't the Georgia native's only present tool. He's 6-0/170 with some developing strength and the ball is already coming off his bat hard.
