Day 2 at Tournament of Stars

Games began at the USA Baseball complex in Cary, North Carolina on Wednesday. It makes for a long, and hot (high was 101, folks), day for all involved, but it’s also the chance to see all the players at the Tournament of Stars in game action.

Three games are in the books, all six teams in action, starting at 10 a.m. You can check out all of the boxscores on usabaseball’s TOS schedule page. Mike Persinger’s Day 1 Notebook is a good read as well (check out all the game coverage he provides as well).

Rather than rehash that, I want to use this space to pass along what scouts who were on hand had to say. Here’s a list, not exhaustive by any stretch, of players who stood out (in no particular order):

Donnie Everett — Up to 94-95 mph, showed makings of good secondary stuff. Good arm.

Ryan Mountcastle — He can flat out hit.

John Aiello — Good, aggressive at-bats

DJ Wilson — Good swings, aggressive play, ran well down line. Fits leadoff profile

Beau Burrows — 90-93 mph, impressive arm strength

Trenton Clark — Very good feel to hit, with advanced approach. Good K zone knowledge and made hard contact

Chad Smith — Swing bat well, hit 3B off top of right field wall

Daz Cameron — top of 1st round ability, exciting tools

Chris Chatfield — Good left-handed swing with power

Mitch Hansen — great left-handed swing

Cole McKay — 91-94 mph



Donnie Everett up to 95-we’ve seen up to 96 in past
