Auburn Underclass All-American Games Notable Players
By: Corey Goldfarb | corey@prospectwire.com

Auburn, AL - It wasn't easy for our staff to rank the top 30 players that attended PW's Underclass All-American Games Southeast in Auburn August 9-10. 

There were plenty of players that were close to making the top 30 and we felt like if we didn't mention their names it wouldn't be right or fair to the players. The more we see players, the better we can evaluate them and we may see these players again and see them play better. Sometimes players have an off weekend, that's baseball.

Notable players that caught our eye but didn't make the top 30 (not in any particular order)

Allen Balentine 2017 RHP Muscle Shoals HS - good mechanics, good extension, long limbed, needs strength, more velocity to come, projectability

Baker Weldon 2016 3B/RHP Wetumpka HS - 81mph across the diamond, great athletic frame, some length in swing but has batspeed and timing is ok

Grayson Blackwell 2016 1B/OF Alabama Christian Academy - big league body, bat speed from the left side, tremendous bp, struggled to produce in games, projectability and upside

JT Bernard 2016 1B/LHP Woodward Academy - quick bat, keeps hands inside the ball, uses all fields, doesn't run, ok defensively, effective as a pitcher, got outs

Kyle Jenkins 2015 C/1B Mandarin HS - physical body, quick bat, produces in games, strong arm (80mph) behind the plate (1.97 POP), moves well around the bag, inconsistent catch and throw skills, best baseball is ahead of Kyle

Mason Miller 2015 OF Lee HS - 80 runner, (3.97 sec) down the line from the right side, 40 arm from the OF with carry, raw at the plate but made enough contact, needs as many at-bats as he can get

Matt White 2015 LHP Pleasant Grove HS - quick arm, athletic, pitchability, mixes 3 pitches for strikes, has some deception, ball gets on hitters quick, competes, topped out at 81mph

Myles Mckisic 2016 MIF American Heritage Delray HS - good actions, 74mph across the diamond, needs to lengthen arm stroke, made all the plays, needs strength at the plate, makes consistent contact, loves to play the game

Patrick Irish 2017 C/1B Nease HS - good bat path, batspeed, line drive machine in BP, plays hard, arm strength behind the plate (75mph) and (2.03 POP), moved ok around the 1B defensively, above average arm strength for grad class at 1B (80mph)

Paul Cunningham 2016 INF/RHP Leon HS - projectable, athletic body, potential big time power bat, some length in swing, infield actions a bit stiff, 78mph across the diamond, up to 83mph as a pitcher, has upside as a hitter

Robert Bell 2017 SS/OF Father Lopez - fairly athletic, better from the left side, played better on day 2, ran a (4.29 sec) down the line from the right side, needs strength, wait and see

Steven Hollis 2015 OF Friendship Christian School - can run, (4.19 sec) from the left side, better game speed, tracks balls well in OF, batspeed, athletic, needs more consistent at-bats

Todd Rule 2016 RHP Northern Guilford HS - arm works well, should be mid 80's soon, strike thrower, competes, gets outs

Xavier Taylor 2015 RHP Lee HS - big bodied, strong lower half, whip-like arm, arm drags at times and drops down, when he gets on top of baseball pitches are effective, below average curveball, upside and some projectability, up to 84mph with fastball

Look for Auburn Underclass All-American Games Southeast Top 30 Players next!
