2008 Top Prospects

Justin Koehler - RHP - 2008 - Atwater, CA
Talented two-way prospect, showed an 88-91 mph fastball and hammer curveball on the mound; strong bat and arm that both profile well at 3rd base along with some speed.

Adam Salazar - C - 2008 - Riverside, CA
Stood out as a hitter, defensive player, and pitcher; middle of the order bat with high level receiving, blocking skills, good catch/throw ability; 87-89 mph fastball and hard curveball.

Steven Keller - C - 2008 - Agoura Hills, CA
Talented and athletic bodied switch-hitting catcher showed power from the right side and a good left handed stroke; good catch/throw, receiving and blocking skills and has field presence.

Josh Gray - OF - 2008 - Thousand Oaks, CA
Lanky bodied with fluid athletic actions and what might be a quickly developing skill set; showed excellent bat speed and an aggressive nature; strong ball hawking skills and a good arm.

Ryan Remlinger - 3B - 2008 - Fullerton, CA
Physically projectable 3rd baseman showed strong lateral defensive skills, soft hands, quick release and a nice arm; line drive hitter with good hands a chance to hit for some power.

Paul Politi - 3B - 2008 - Los Gatos, CA
A well-rounded and talented ballplayer, he stood out in both halves of the game; line drive hitter with gap power and a hint of more to come; has good hands, a strong arm and a nose for the ball.

Christopher Curtis - SS - 2008 - Vacaville, CA
He is a ‘ballplayer’ with skills all over the field; good hands and feet with a quick release and strong arm; good bat speed with gap power; also has 85-87 mph fastball and downer curveball.

Chadd Krist - C - 2008 - Petaluma, CA
All around contributor from the catcher position with a bat that is an asset; good catch/throw skills and an excellent receiver he also has a quick bat and the ability to drive the baseball to all fields.

Kyle Shipley - RHP - 2008 - Albany, CA
Performance is often discounted in a showcase but 10 strikeouts in four innings cannot be ignored; best pitch is a 12/6ish yakker curveball which complements a sneaky 83-85 mph fastball.

Jeff Phillips - 3B - 2008 - Dinuba, CA
One of the more accomplished hitters in the event and looks like he will continue to hit well at the college level due to a nice stroke and strong barrel awareness; smart player plays defense with feel.

Harmen Sidhu - RHP - 2008 - Martinez, CA
Sneaky and deceptive are two words for his stuff and arm action; easy arm provided low effort 84-87 mph fastball (T 88) complemented very well by a big, late, frisbee curveball.

Corey Carma - RHP - 2008 - Salinas, CA
Though he is an average bodied right-hander, he does have a nice quick arm and good stuff; has an 84-87 mph fastball with some sink to go with both a curveball and slider that are out pitches.

Steven Messner - LHP - 2008 - Victorville, CA
Nice looking left hander with an strong build and quality stuff that will keep improving, including a fastball up to 86 mph and feel of a rainmaker curveball that gets below bats.

Sean Bignall - OF - 2008 - Brampton, ON
Power packed body and good offensive tools including a quick bat and at times a swing that plays quite well with his 6.87 speed to create some havoc; can handle the fastball.

Brian Baumgarten - OF - 2008 - Bellaire, TX
One of the more talented hitters in the showcase, he showed the ability to handle the fastball though he did struggle with offspeed stuff; ran the bases hard showed a solid outfield arm.

2009 Top Prospects

Matthew Moynihan - OF - 2009 - San Diego, CA
Rates as the most physically talented player in the event with a body that clearly passes the eye test; has impact speed and contact hitting skills that allow him to utilize that speed; will be really really interesting when he learns to drive the baseball.

Patrick Stover - OF - 2009 - Rocklin, CA
Raw power is what is most attractive about him, that and a body generally found on young players with plus power potential; already has the ability to consistently make HARD barrel contact.

Nolan Clark - C - 2009 - Mission Viejo, CA
Future position is TBD but he already shows hitting instincts and raw ability of a young impact hitter; a strong arm fits all over the field and he touched 87 mph on the mound.

Aaron Northcraft - RHP - 2009 - Newport Beach, CA
Pro body and a long easy arm stroke should have him sitting in the upper-80s soon though he topped at 85 mph; his distinctively high leg kick can be distracting to hitters.

Trevor Penny - C - 2009 - Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
There is some powerful leverage in his swing and his strong build contributes to his power potential; has solid catch/throw and defensive skills.
