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.

Delta Team (Orange)

C/3B Drake Bicknell (5'10" 185, R/R), Jesuit HS
Has ability to play well abv avg defense at both C/3B, plays calm, has tools, very comfortable w/pace of the game. Displays same traits at the plate, middle of line-up potential, chance to develop into impact player at collegiate level. - Attending College of the Desert

C Joey Adge (5'11" 185, R/R), Del Campo HS
All-around player at catcher position, possesses no less than average defensive abilities projecting to college level, clean catch/throw mechanics, accurate arm, strong bat w/plus barrel feel, went 3-4 (2 1B, 2B) in 4 AB, each ball scalded. - Attending Pima Community College

RHP/SS Fidel Ulloa (6'1" 175, R/R), Lodi HS
Quick arm, clean delivery, athletic on mound like many SS who transition to pitching. Has feel for the CB, gets FB up to 87, attacks hitters. Can't be written off as a hitter quite yet, showed barrel feel w/wood, compact swing and has strength.

RHP/1B/3B Bryce Baughman (6'1" 185, R/R), Placer HS
Low slot RHP reliever profile, pounds zone w/3 pitches (FB/SL/CHG), showed ability to lower his slot even further, low-80s w/projectability for more, middle of field approach at plate, barrel contact w/extra base pop in 4 of 6 plate appearances.

LHP Cristian Machado (5'11" 190), Heritage HS
Have seen multiple times in HS action, including outstanding performances in NCS playoff games, understands/trusts stuff, the raw velo was down in this look (could be lack of summer reps), but still showed pitchability w/full repertoire.

C Tyler Meehleis (6'0" 165, R/R), Lodi HS
Enthusiastic player, flashes projectable tools all-around for the catcher position, a bit more development over the next two years or so and he's got a chance to emerge as an average defensive catcher w/contributing offensive skills.

LHP/1B Hayden Hildenbrand (6'3" 180, L/L), Lodi HS
Rangy projectable body, strike thrower w/full repertoire which projects very nicely given his future size and strength gains. As weekend went on he found feel at the plate, driving the ball gap to gap. Much more development is ahead for him.

LHP Carson Szeder (5'10" 190), Whitney HS
Strong compact body type, has plenty of arm quickness and showed ability to get quality spin on the FB (max 2284). CB flashed quick change of direction, aggressive thrower though feel for the zone was somewhat elusive for him.

OF Colton Smithhart (5'10" 178, L/R), Lodi HS
Athlete who flashes tools that all have a chance to develop into usable at the collegiate level, given some continued years of development and consistency. He's strong, has bat speed, runs well enough (have seen as low as 7.19) & shows arm strength.

RHP Lucas Ringenberg (6'2" 190), Alhambra HS
Consistently has shown the ability to mix his pitches and change speeds within the zone and elicit soft contact. Understands the craft of pitching. If/when the velocity spikes upward, the 'pitcher' he already is will be greatly enhanced.

INF Caleb Wall (5'10" 165, L/R), Lodi HS
Sound stroke, clean mechanics, showed feel for spraying the ball to all fields on workout day, timing issues showed up a bit in the sim-game competition, clean funnel type fielding mechanics w/soft hands, accurate thrower, calm actions.
