12 uncommitted '21s on this team and some are head-scratchers

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. 

North Bay Team (Green)

OF/RHP Eli Rainey (6'4" 190, R/R), Chico HS
Long and lean, highly athletic/projectable talent, displays legit two-way talent, ceiling looks a bit higher on mound where he's up to 87, can rip the slider as a K pitch, easy arm too. Does have range in OF & there is power in the bat.

OF/RHP Jake Hamman (6'0" 170, R/R), Chico HS
Powerful actions, throw & run tools are abv avg (have seen 6.97 60), bat speed is there & power potential is projectable. Could fill any of the three OF spots & play plus defense, outstanding range. Gets on mound & flashes nasty stuff.

1B Ian Avalos (5'11" 214, R/R), Vintage HS
Physical profile suggests most useful tool must be RHH power bat & that's exactly it. Not just a mauler, has the hit tool, routinely makes outstanding barrel contact, present usable power to all fields & there is more coming. Capable defender.

INF Jake Ferguson (5'9" 165, R/R), Tamalpais HS
Appears more physical than the listed size, simple positive comment is that he's good at baseball. Tools aren't exceptional but he's got skill and feel for the game. Gap/gap approach, XBH talent, good infield feet, capable at all INF spots.

IF/OF Justin Sullivan (5'8" 155, R/R), Cardinal Newman HS
Interesting player, multi-position talent, could evolve into true utility man, possesses plus run tool, has feel for bat, can compete vs quality pitching, grinder style of play, could see a role as UTL/PH early in college career then go from there.

RHP/OF Joey Van Dusen (6'0" 170, R/R), Chico HS
Competed as 2-way player w/pitching ceiling/present ability showing stronger. Quick arm, good athlete, spins the FB well which allows for higher projection than the 84 mph he touched. Flashed offensive talent that can blossom.

RHP Dylan Simmons (6'2" 155), Vanden HS
Lean bodied, been steadily getting taller/stronger over last few years. Has always shown attacking-strike throwing ability w/fearless approach and now the velo is creeping up as his arm speed has increased. Good stuff still ahead for him.

LHP Ryan Shimabukuro (6'0" 160), St. Mary's College HS
At first glance, the traditional metrics (mph) don't grab attention, but a look further and the 2431 max spin on the FB, as a lean body LHP who is a ways from physical maturity, paints a more full future picture. The arm works well too.

OF/RHP Ryan Muir (6'2" 160, L/R), Monte Vista HS
Long/lean body, a ways from physical maturity. Showed stronger as a position player, with decent speed, high EV and average arm. Three pitch mix on the mound and a projectable body/arm. Given time to get stronger he can blossom.
