BAWS UNCOMMITTED 2022 GRADS (+ two 2023 grads)

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. Scroll down, the reports/snippets are organized by team (and number order on the roster).

Coast Team (Silver)

OF Will Bowen (5'11" 170, L/L), Serra HS
Flashes three tools that get a young OF on the radar, which when combined with L/L profile on athletic body, make him an interesting junior. The arm and the hit tools show up in workouts/competition, the run tool can improve just a bit more. - Committed to Lansing CC

OF Lou Martineau (5'10" 155, R/R), Burlingame HS
A good player w/a competitive streak in him, there are present tools that will all be enhanced w/some physical maturity. Swing works, covers ground in the OF, throws/runs well. It's simply size/strength that are the key to further development.

INF Christian Galvez (6'3" 200, R/R), St. Francis HS
Type of body and baseball actions, along w/tools that project favorably. Runs well for size (7.01), flashes power both w/EV numbers and ball flight in BP. Soft glove, near avg arm, projects to be a well-rounded 3rd baseman, w/D and offense.

RHP Michael Banderas (6'1" 197), San Ramon Valley HS
Physical/durable type body, workhorse comes to mind. Three pitch mix w/each pitch complementing the other, giving him strikeout stuff. FB peaked at 87 w/max 2504 spin, SL 74-78 mph (max 2382 spin) w/feel of CHG that has late fade in zone.

2023 1B/OF William Ashley (6'2" 165, R/R), Branson School
Long rangy athlete, the offensive talent shows up now & will shine brighter w/physical strength gains. Drives ball in middle of field while staying short and controlled to contact. Deft defensive skills at 1st base also w/corner OF talents.

Delta Team (Orange)

OF Noe Mora (5'10" 145, R/R), Lincoln HS
Three days of seeing him hit illuminated one of the best RH swings in the '22 class (N CA). Lean/lithe, far from physical maturity, further highlighting how good he can be. The run tool can improve as can the arm/throwing mechanics.

1B Jaxson German (6'2" 208, R/R), Capital Christian HS
Physical presence at the plate, intimidating look in set-up. In multiple looks at him its clear that he has power and will develop more. Some inconsistencies in rate of barrel contact, but when under control and 'small' the ball jumps off his bat.

2023 RHP Kurt Marton (6'0" 155), Oakmont HS
Lean bodied, loose arm, clean mechanics (near 6' extension), focused competitor, repertoire that has strikeout ability, quick FB up to 83 (max spin 2219), usable CB 68-71 mph as his third pitch, best secondary offering is diving splitter.

East Bay Team (Royal Blue)

OF Luke Souza (5'11" 165, R/R), Acalanes HS
Young build, fluid actions, hand path at the plate is clean and delivers the barrel on-time with balance. Given strength gains in the coming years he should emerge further as an offensive player. Arm projects fairly (LF), can improve the run tool.

MIF A.J. Bianchina (5'8" 155, S/R), De La Salle HS
Hit-getting switch-hitter, showed ability to slash the ball to LF from LH side of plate, while staying in the middle from RH side w/some XBH ability. Energetic gritty style of play, capable of playing SS though raw arm/range project best for 2B.

2B/OF Kyle White (5'10" 165, L/R), Acalanes HS
Consistently shows LH hit talent that will keep colleges interested in him through recruiting process. Has feel for the bat, shows XBH pop gap to gap, plenty of bat speed w/sound mechanics. Defensive profile is a bit murky, LF/UTL feels right.

C Caovinh Nguyen (5'8" 185, R/R), Mission San Jose HS
Full weekend viewing of him showed a talented and well-rounded ballplayer at the catcher position. Athletic/agile behind plate w/soft strong hands, great energy. Pops/raw arm can improve just a tick. Highly competitive ABs, line-up contributor.

RHP Kolby Calia (6'2" 195), Deer Valley HS
Prototypical body for a college RHP, w/stuff that isn't quite prototypical. Lower-80s velo (w/high spin) should/will tick up and complement his slippery, big biting CB/SL. The high spin and late break give that pitch swing/miss action beyond HS.

3B/1B Jaylen Wise (5'11" 215, R/R), Deer Valley HS
Big body w/athletic actions suggesting that he's got a chance to develop impact bat talent. Has ability to drive the ball now, HR power will come. Defensively shows promise at 3B w/glove though range and raw arm project better at 1st base.

North Bay Team (Green)

INF/RHP Nick Andrews (5'10" 172, R/R), Justin-Siena HS
Intense competitor, chance to hit for sure. Not big of body or w/eye-catching tools, but swing, hands, & confidence show up. Will develop XBH pop, especially on pullside. Profiles best at 2B but only saw him at 3B. Has pitchability on mound.

OF Devin Riley (6'0" 155, L/R), Vanden HS
Lean/lithe bodied, flashes all the actions and glimpses of tools that should blossom w/continued strength gains. Run, throw, and EV numbers all show him on the fringe of avg to abv average tools. Competitive ABs, one to keep an eye on.

LHP Suraj Takhar (6'2" 180), Rodriguez HS
Body catches the eye, has clean delivery, full 3-4 pitch repertoire, strike thrower w/ability to change speeds. Raw stuff will have to tick up quite a bit to start gaining attn from colleges, spin rates on the low end which is an area for him to improve.

INF/RHP Gabriel Henderson (5'10" 180, R/R), McClatchy HS
Baseball skill shows up at the plate and on mound. Raw tools are still in the development stage and should come around with physical maturity. Good bat to ball skills w/some gap/gap XBH potential. Strike-thrower on mound w/attacking style.

South Bay Team (Red)

INF/C Tyson Smith (5'11" 165, L/R), St. Francis HS
The swing is controlled, he sees the ball well, short to it w/some barrel impact that increases each time we see him. Swing plays to all fields, handles velocity well while staying in the middle. Defense profiles best to 2B, can play 3B, receives well.

RHP Jacob Woods (5'9" 160), Monte Vista Christian HS
Not the biggest RHP but size doesn't always indicate stuff. Attacked the zone w/FB up to 81 w/max spin 2133. The CB is a second usable pitch and that max spin of 2290 is a good number. The CHG plays well off the FB, with fade in the zone.

OF/RHP Josh Cantwell-Nahrung (5'10" 160, R/R), Homestead HS
Lean frame, flashes talent both ways to give him more time to develop position or pitcher. FB up to 81 w/avg spin of 2314, a GOOD number for projecting velo gains, flashed feel of CB/CHG. Can improve consistency of contact in game ABs.

RHP Adam Stothard (5'11" 165), Los Altos HS
Strike thrower, athletic pitcher, has feel for his delivery& ability to manipulate the ball. Clean arm action will allow for steady velo gains as he gets stronger. Feel for three pitches (CB/CHG), each w/room for spin development. Competitive!

RHP Danny Peters (6'4" 235), Palo Alto HS
Has look of a country strong, power arm, reminiscent of young Brad Penny type. Given his young age and size he displayed good body control of the delivery, pounded the zone w/FB (84-87, max 2358 spin), also feel of hard-ish CB (75 mph).

RHP Zak Sullivan (6'0" 176), Woodside HS
There is some good stuff here though control of the zone has to improve to see him take the next step. Quick/strong arm, the max 2344 spin of FB up to 84 is a good indication for future velocity gains and he does flash feel of both CB & CHG.

Valley Team (Light Blue)

RHP Kobe Gong (6'0" 160), Westmont HS
Doesn't have big stuff quite yet, may not project all that high with the velocity, was around the zone, showed some spin promise (FB T76) w/quality horizontal movement numbers. CB spin also shows promise (max 2270), w/fading CHG.

INF Aaron Martinez (6'0" 185, R/R), Le Grand HS
Made lasting impression w/bat, which has shown up as an impact tool in multiple viewings. Physical w/plus bat speed and strong barrel awareness. Aggressive stroke w/bat control too. Defensively projects to 3B, where the bat/arm play.

C Derrick Cruz (5'11" 185, R/R), Clovis North HS
Able to participate in workout portion only but showed he's a '22 C to be very aware of. Arm talent shows up (76 mph) and has room to grow. Plays athletically behind plate, w/pops 1.94-2.04. Bat showed power potential and impact talent.

RHP Nick Shows (5'11" 170), Clovis North HS
Three pitch mix, feel of the slider which stands out as his best pitch. The velo of the FB will have to tick up but his stuff does play up due to 6.2" avg extension. Given just a bit more velo and spin (to get more life & bite) and he could pop.

C Conner Smith (6'3" 190, R/R), Capital Christian HS
Strong athletic body. Flashed bat talent & arm/defensive tools that project very favorably for the college game. Arm up to 78 mph in warm-up POPs (2.10 between innings). Made loud barrel contact multiple times, no issue with mid-80s velo.
