2021 Grads - Uncommitted

Stats not listed can be found w/in their PBR profile link. The notes, when referring to avg, plus, abv avg, middle of line-up hitter, etc, are relative to D1 baseball. 

Coast Team (Silver)

C Nathan Wood (6'1" 175, R/R), Pacific Grove HS
Among most athletic catchers in CA in the 2021 class, that athleticism plays too. Quick release, plus agility for blocking and bouncing out of crouch. Can POP consistently around 2.0, abv avg arm. Projects to hit as well, w/XBH pop.

3B Jackson Gifford (5'11" 190, R/R), Harbor HS
Hit tool stood out. Quick trigger, short swing produced hard contact w/little effort. Projects to have extra base hit power w/ability to hit quality pitching. Solid avg defense tools, maybe capable of 2B or LF in addition to 3B.

RHP/1B/3B Ben Pernetti (6'1" 205, L/R), Pleasant Grove HS
Physical man-type body, showed 2-way talent though stood out more brightly on mound. HEAVY stuff, zone pounder w/FB 83-88 (max 2305 spin) & potential hammer CB (70-74, avg spin 2431, max 2517). There is some LHH thump here too.

C Joey Lee (5'8" 160, R/R), Serra HS
Consistently showed a hit tool that looks very capable of playing at the next level. Short, compact, quick stroke with outstanding barrel feel. Projects to be able to hit quality pitching. Athletic catcher w/strong receiving/block skills.

1B Ben Singler (6'2" 265, R/R), Sequoia HS
Big football type body, by the frame the expectation would be that he can pound the ball, and he can. Only did the workout portion but put up impressive EV stats w/correlating Blast numbers. Plays 1B w/light feet and an accurate arm.

MIF Philip Penrose (5'9" 160, L/R), Salinas HS
Showed solid MIF defensive skills that project more for the right side of the diamond based on raw arm and range, has soft hands and plays a calm manner of defense. Offensively its a contact oriented approach w/solid bat to ball skills.
