2011 Midwest Underclass Showcase






2013 Top Prospects

Austin Verschoore - OF - 2013 - O'Fallon, MO
Very talented, very versatile. Does everything on the diamond well, bat is best tool, projects to be high level OF prospect who can also play anywhere else if needed. Good tools across the board.

Matthew Johnson - 3B - 2013 - Ankeny, IA
Strong lean athletic build. Good hitting mechanics, projects for power, quick fluid swing. Up to 84 on the mound with good curveball.

Nick Kanavas - SS - 2013 - Brookfield, WI
Impressive arm strength from 3B and good power at the plate. Impressive round of BP, played well in games, sound INF actions. Looks the part.

Colton Lee - RHP - 2013 - Kenosha, WI
Solid two-way player, strong OF arm, up to 84 on the mound, good hitting tools. Has shown rapid improvement, projects to continue.

Mitchell Moser - MIF - 2013 - Atkins, IA
Has developed since we last saw him at the Spring Top Prospect Showcase and is becoming a high level hitter. Showed well defensively in games and is becoming more consistent. Up to 82 on the mound and showed some improvement with his curveball.

Ryan Colombo - SS - 2013 - Topeka, KS
Good defender up the middle, quick actions at 2B, good hands, arm works well. Simple swing with some present strength at contact, bat projects. Also up to 81 on the mound with good arm action.

Hayden Willner - RHP - 2013 - Watkins, MN
Showed improvement from the Spring as a pitcher (up to 83) but bigger jump as a hitter. Impressed with the bat in BP and in games, has become a good two-way prospect with quality offensive tools.

Travis Neubeck - RHP - 2013 - Hugo, MN
Tall slender athletic build projects well. Showed good two-way ability from both sides of the battery. Popped a 1.91 (79 mph) and touched 86 on the mound with a good three pitch mix. Switch hitter who is good from both sides, though still a bit more polished from his natural (right) side.

Tyler Mougin - MIF - 2013 - Walford, IA
Loose swing actions, has bat speed, quick hands, drives the ball hard. Light on feet defensively, solid hands, has all around potential. Up to 77 on the mound.

Bradley Margolin - C - 2013 - Northbrook, IL
Arm strength stood out all over the diamond. Future may be brightest as a RHP where he touched 85 with his fastball and showed a hard 11-5 curveball with good tilt. Showed quick hands at the plate with some offensive upside. Very good arm behind the plate, popped a 1.94 and can cut down on release time, arm looked good in OF as well.

Dalton Moats - LHP - 2013 - Kansas City, MO
Long thin build, room to fill. Fastball sat 81-83 with good balance to his deceptive delivery. Throws strikes, good spin on curveball (70) and showed a godo splitter at 78.

Tyler Butz - 3B - 2013 - Walford, IA
Looks the part, has tools to hit, needs to develop skills to match. Has some upside, chance to develop into quality hitter.

Tyler Votroubek - 1B - 2013 - Ely, IA
Big athletic OF, has some pop in his bat. Smooth load, leverage in swing, strong at contact, solid OF actions, aggressive fielder.

Mitch Stickney - OF - 2013 - Marion, IA
Impressive round of BP, quick hands, good bat speed, projects to hit for power. Threw 84 from the OF, moves well defensively, body projects.

Chase Watt - MIF - 2013 - Lee Summit, MO
Good defensive shortstop, aggressive fielder, made a couple highlight plays in games. Switch hitter who projects to develop offensively.

Michael Hayworth - C - 2013 - Overland Park, KS
Smooth hitter, solid LD stroke, loose swing actions. Good arm behind the plate, solid skills.

Mitchell Haug - C - 2013 - Harrisonville, MO
Strong armed catcher, good lateral agility behind the plate, thick muscular build. Solid hitting tools, squares up and makes hard contact.

Glenn Roy Pace - RHP - 2013 - Flower Mound, TX
Small athletic righty with a very quick arm. Fastball sat 83-86 with a lot of movement, good changeup and an 11-5 curveball. Has shown improvement in terms of raw stuff, needs to sharpen command to become high level pitching prospect, which is a likely possibility. Keep an eye on him.

Cadis Chase - 1B - 2013 - Belgrade, MT
A rare prospect from Wyoming, Chase is a bit less polished than some of the other players on this list but he has good upside, especially with the bat. With quick hands and strength at contact Chase looks to be a few tweaks away from consistently driving the ball with authority, quality left handed hitting prospect.

Gage Carpenter - RHP - 2013 - Wapello, IA
Fastball at 80-84, hard slider at 79 with tilt. Switch hitter with some pop in his bat, more natural from right side.


2014 Top Prospects

Alex Lange - RHP - 2014 - Lee's Summit, MO
Tall athletic build, some lean strength, projectable frame. Fastball sat 83-86 with life, loose arm action, well balanced delivery with good leg drive. Works quick, pitches to both sides of the plate. Showed some pop at the plate and defensive ability at SS.

Cody Rutscher - SS - 2014 - Overland Park, KS
Young two-way player who showed impressive defensive actions at shortstop and some promise on the mound. Smooth swing at the plate, solid present hitter with projection to improve.

J.T. Sole - C - 2014 - Cedar Falls, IA
Young offensive minded catcher. Solid arm behind the plate some projection, quick hands offensively with surprising strength.

Jaylen Yarbrough - OF - 2014 - Richton Park, IL
Young athlete with very good speed and quick all around actions. Covers good ground in the outfield, projectable hitting tools.

Toran Shahidi - C - 2014 - Ames, IA
Polished hitting mechanics for a 2014 grad, clean load, line drive swing plane with good extension. Solid defensive tools behind the plate.


2015 Top Prospects

Joshua Stowers - OF - 2015 - Westchester, IL
One of the youngest players in attendence, Stowers showed very good potential across the board. Though he is a young player who is still learning the finer points of the game, Stiwers has the raw talent and athleticism to develop into a high level ballplayer if he is willing to put in the work to develop. He will be fun to watch over the next few years.
