2014 Florida Underclass Showcase
2016 Top Prospects
- OF - 2016 - Miami, FL
Soto is a very versatile athlete who finished close to the top of the leader boards at multiple positions defensively and took one of the better batting practices of the event as well.
- SS - 2016 - Orlando, FL
Benitez' whippy right handed bat speed really stood out in the games, as he drove the ball hard to the alley's. He's very athletic with nice physical projection.
- 3B - 2016 - Debary, FL
Harkcom is present strong with lots of right handed bat speed. He also has a strong arm at third base and should end up being a solid defender at that position.
- C - 2016 - Fleming Island, FL
Sarsen is a very polished defensive catcher for his age and stands out for his quickness and athleticism behind the plate. He swings a good right handed bat, too.
Juan Francisco Teixeira
- OF - 2016 - Cooper City, FL
Tiexeira has a nice loose athleticism that plays well on defense in the outfield and also translates well into his right handed swing.
- 1B - 2016 - Davie, FL
Rivero has a slender, projectable young build and a fastball that has been topping out in the mid-80's all summer, including here in Fort Myers.
- OF - 2016 - Ormond Beach, FL
Marlatt needs to get stronger but he graded out the highest of any outfielder at the showcase defensively and has a loose right handed swing that projects.
- 1B - 2016 - Miami Lakes, FL
Blanco is a bat-first athlete with lots of power in his 6-foot-4, 190 pound build, especially if he learns to hit taller at the plate and use all his leverage and strength.
2017 Top Prospects
- C - 2017 - Boca Raton, FL
Rothenberg is a 6-foot-3, 190 pound switch-hitting catcher, which says plenty right there. His defensive tools were polished for a '17 and his right handed swing was especially good at the plate.
- LHP - 2017 - Katy, TX
Armistead was up to 83 mph from the left side but might be a better position prospect. He took the best BP of any Underclass hitter and hit well in games as well.
- C - 2017 - Jupiter, FL
Doolittle is another very young catcher with a projectable 6-foot-3 frame to build on. He has quick hands at the plate and projects lots of power.
- MIF - 2017 - Elko, GA
Brannen stood out for his quickness and athleticism defensively, while his left handed swing is just some strength away from really being able to drive the ball.
