At last: A look at the Area Code Games

I wasn’t at the Area Code Games in person (that job fell to colleague Jesse Sanchez, but I am equipped with opinions from scouts. In a future post, I’ll talk about some cool new performance analysis type things done by Trackman, a Danish company that started in golf but has been making a splash in baseball of late.

First, here are some names mentioned by scouts in attendance (by no means exhaustive):

Phillip Bickford, RHP (Oaks Christian HS, Calif.)
Cavan Biggio, INF (St. Thomas HS, Texas)
Ian Clarkin, LHP (Madison HS, Calif.)
JP Crawford, SS (Lakewood HS, Calif.)
Jonathan Denney, C (Yukon HS, Okla.)
Stephen Gonsalves, LHP (Cathedral Catholic HS, Calif.)
Jeremy Martinez, C (Mater Dei HS, Calif.)
A.J. Puk 1B/LHP (Cedar Rapids HS, Iowa)
Chris Rivera, SS/OF/C (El Dorado HS, Calif.)
Corey Simpson, 1B/C (Sweeny HS, Texas)
Dominic Smith, 1B/OF (Serra HS, Calif.)
Kohl Stewart, RHP (St. Pius X HS, Texas)

Overall, scouts were a little more enthusiastic than they were earlier in the summer about the crop. Still no jump out at you elite talent, but some decent depth to look at for next year.

Standout performers at East Coast Showcase

Sorry for getting this up a bit later than planned, but I wanted to get up my list of the top players at the recently completed East Coast Pro Showcase. Meanwhile, the Area Code Games are on-going in Southern California.

I talked to several scouts who were in attendance and came up with a sort of hybrid list. Some of it is based on performance at the event, some of it based on a more long-term evaluation of tools. In other words, some guys are on this list who didn’t necessarily do anything special in Suracuse over the four days of the event, but are high schoolers who should be watched for next year’s Draft. This is also a list of 2013 guys, so there may have been a 2014 guy or two who was deserving that I left out. Without further ado:

  1. Robert Kaminsky, LHP
  2. Trey Ball, LHP/OF
  3. Oscar Mercado, SS
  4. Austin Meadows, OF
  5. Clint Frazier, OF
  6. Nick Ciuffo, C
  7. Chris Oakley, RHP
  8. Justin Williams, OF
  9. Brett Morales, RHP
  10. Zack Collins, C
  11. Hunter Harvey, RHP
  12. Jacob Heyward, OF
  13. Mark Armstrong, RHP
  14. Connor Jones, RHP
  15. TJ McDonald, RHP
  16. Thomas Milone, OF
  17. Joe Dudek, OF
  18. Hunter Green, LHP
  19. Carson Sands, LHP
  20. Chris Okey, C

Day 2 at the East Coast Pro Showcase

Three more games are in the books here in Syracuse and there were some solid performances once again at the East Coast Pro Showcase.

There are still two days to go, but it’s hard to imagine that anyone will have a better showing here than LHP Robert Kaminsky. The southpaw from New Jersey (St. Joe’s) threw three outstanding innings, hitless innings to be precise. While this Draft class may not have any of those huge power arms that blow you away, there’s no question Kaminsky knows how to pitch.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of stuff there. Kaminsky was up to 93 mph and, outside of two walks, located his fastball well. He threw a number of simply outstanding curve balls and mixed in several changeups as well. It’s not often in showcases like this that you see a pitcher mix three pitches so effectively. Kaminsky struck out the side in his first and second innings. Then he struck out the first batter he faced in his third inning of work. Even with his velocity dropping a touch in the last inning, his other stuff was so effective it didn’t matter. He got his last two outs on ground balls.

He got strikeouts with all of his pitches. He froze two batters in his first inning with the changeup, then got the last batter of that frame with a fastball. He used all three of his pitches in inning No. 2, striking out a batter each with the fastball, curve and changeup. As one scout put it, “He has moxie.” Moxie is a scouting term, by the way. Kaminsky does go right after hitters and has no fear. He told me after the game that he likes pitching inside.

While Kaminsky was clearly the star of the day, he wasn’t the only lefty who stood out. Scouts had good things to say about Trey Ball as well. Ball hails from Indiana (New Castle High School) and he threw well in the first game of the day. He doesn’t throw as hard as Kaminsky, but he was 88-90 mph consistently with a very free and easy delivery. What makes Bell interesting is that he’s a two-way player. Most high school players who pitch also hit at that level. But while it’s obvious that a player like Kaminsky will definitely be a pitcher at the next level, the jury is still out on Ball. He also hit well in Thursday’s game. Oh, and he ran a 6.82 60 on Wednesday. Tall and very lanky, he could easily add 20 pounds to his frame in the future. On both sides of the ball, scouts like his actions. Everything he does “looks right,” as one scout put it. He does things easy, as they say.

Scouts continued to like Oscar Mercado, pointing to him as a potential top of the first round type talent. He absolutely smoked a ball back up the middle in the last game of the day on Thursday and shows very good actions at shortstop. He’ll need to add some strength, but true up the middle guys always get a lot of attention.

Some things are more important than baseball

Don’t worry, I’ll get back to talking about prospects, the Draft, the East Coast Pro Showcase, you name it. But I’m hoping you’ll forgive the tangent here as I felt this was important enough to talk about.

As readers of this blog and my stuff on mlb.com know, I spend all of my time covering prospects — pro and amateur alike. We’ve expanded our coverage quite a bit over the last couple of years and our Prospect Watch section has 700 or so players on it. We take great pride in it.

From time to time, I’ve given a shout out to “behind the scenes” folks. None do more than my co-worker Jason Ratliff. Everything looks as good as it does largely because of his herculean efforts. But I’m  not writing about him to thank him for that (though he deserves it). I’m writing about another project that he’s headed up that has nothing to do with baseball.

Without getting into too much detail, Jason’s family has been directly impacted by the cruel disease ALS (most know it as Lou Gehrig’s Disease). As a result of that, he’s organized a 5K run/1 mile fun run and walk event near his family’s home in the St. Louis area. The race is this coming Saturday, Aug. 4.

I want to pass along a few links and I sincerely urge you to consider supporting this important, and heartbreaking, cause.
First, here’s the link to the event’s site: Keep Your Eyes on the Pies!! (A local restaurant has donated some ridiculous looking pies).

Second, a link to the race registration. If you like to run or walk, you can still register to be a part of this fantastic race.

Finally, the link to donate. You can give money to the ALS Association or you can give to the Nancy Ratliff Medical Fund if you want to help the family directly with the round-the-clock medical care costs.

I appreciate those of you who took the time to read this and even more if you took action. I promise a return to prospect talk after this.

 

Day 1 at the East Coast Pro Showcase

Three games, about 15 hours at the ballpark here in Syracuse. That’s what the scouts from all 30 organizations took in on Wednesday, the first day of the East Coast Pro Showcase.

The best quote that sums up what people feel so far about the 2013 Draft class came from one scout who said, “I don’t want to be one of those guys who says a Draft class is weak, but…”

But as they always say, there will be big leaguers from this class, as with every one.
The first day of the East Coast Showcase includes all the position players running 60-yard dashes and there was quite a bit of speed on display. The top times:

Carlos Williams, Covington HS. Tenn: 6.40
Stephen Wrenn Jr.,Walton HS, Ga.: 6.40
Matthew McPhearson, Riverdale Baptist School, Md.: 6.50
Justin Holt, Gulfport HS, Miss.: 6.56
Silento Sayles, Port Gibson HS, Miss.: 6.58
Clint Frazier, Loganville HS: 6.60
Benjamin Dluzio, The First Academy, Mich.: 6.60
Terry McClure, Riverwood International Charter School, Ga.: 6.63
Connor Heady, North Oldham, Kent.: 6.63
Alexander Krupa, Greenwood Community HS, Ind.: 6.64
Austin Meadows, Grayson HS: 6.64

There wasn’t a ton of velocity — no one creating a buzz with crazy radar gun readings, but there were several pitchers who were sitting in the low 90s. The top velo guys:

Clinton Hollon, Woodford County, KY: 93 mph (left in 2nd inning with some elbow soreness, more precautionary than anything)
Connor Jones, Great Bridge HS, Va.: 93 mph
Jordan Sheffield, Tullahoma HS, Tenn: 91 mph
Timothy McDonald, Village Christian Academy, NC: 92 mph
Tyler Danish, Durant HS, Fla.: 92 mph
Chris Oakley, St. Augustine Prep, NJ: 90 mph
Mark Armstrong, Clarence HS, NY: 90 mph

More tomorrow…

And, finally, there were a few guys who’s overall performances did make scouts notice. Here are some hitters who were mentioned by scouts I spoke to:

Austin Meadows, OF, Grayson HS, Ga.
Clint Frazier, OF, Loganville HS, Ga.
Jacob Heyward, OF, Eagles Landing HS, Ga.
Oscar Mercado, SS, Gaither HS, Fla.
Thomas Milone, OF, Masuk HS, Conn.
Joseph Dudek Jr, 1B, Christian Brothers Academy, NJ
