Next Level's Holiday Camp Orange Report
By: Corey Goldfarb | corey@prospectwire.com

Tallahassee, FL - Here are some of the standout players from the Orange team.

Hunter Hubbard, a RHP showed a fastball up to 86mph and a curveball at 72mph. Hubbard’s release point was straight over the top which straightened out his fastball but made his 12 to 6 curveball very effective. Hubbard has a quick arm and his pitches are much more effective when they are from more or a downhill angle. I think if Hubbard gets on a good strength and flexibility program his velocity and movement will improve.

Treymane Holmes impressed again. I hadn’t seen Holmes in a game until the camp but his tools definitely started translating into the games which is what every coach and scout wants to see. Holmes ran a 4.40 down the line from the right side and was slow getting out of the box. In the outfield, Holmes tracks the ball very well with a quick first step and has plenty of arm strength and speed to play in centerfield. I think Holmes hit the ball hard in almost every at bat and on a steal from first to second ran a 3.25 standing up. On the mound, Holmes was low to mid 80’s with his fastball and flashed good curveball with tight spin. I can’t decide whether I like Holmes better on the mound or as a position player. I can see his fastball approaching 90mph in the next year and his speed getting down to a 6.7-6.8 second 60 time with a solid bat.

Adam Asker is a bat I like and with some work I may really like. When Asker learns to shorten his stride and swing to get quicker to the ball I think he’ll hit for average and some power. Asker gets out on his front foot quite a bit and that’s just a part of being an immature hitter which is normal at his age. I think the tools are there for Asker to be a next level hitter if he works on a few things and learns how to be more patient and let the ball travel deeper at the plate. One of his at bats he did show me something I hadn’t seen after battling several pitches he went with the pitch and punched it the other way for a base hit and a productive at bat showing bat control I hadn't seen from Asker before.

Erik Montero is a player I like at the plate but defensively he needs a lot of work. I don’t know if Montero can play third base, first base may be a better fit. Montero has yet to tap into his power but with his bat speed and physical strength, I think with better patience at the plate the power will come in game situations. Montero needs to spend more time working on his defense for now in my opinion. If a college coach can’t find a place for Montero to play defensively it will limit his college options.

Ben Bryan showed a good solid approach at the plate and ran a 5.47 on a slow turn.

Haddix, a RHP from Godby High School showed a 76mph fastball and a 65mph curveball.

Gage West wasn’t allowed to throw as a catcher, I’d still like to see him healthy and evaluate his arm strength. In the games, West struggled to square up pitches getting jammed several times. I think West has some length in his swing that was slightly exposed during the games but it can be an easy fix and I’ll take his bat speed any day of the week.

I didn’t get their names but #3 showed a 67mph fastball and Ryan Day showed an 81mph fastball and a 72mph curveball and threw a ton of strikes.

Tomorrow’s report will be on the Red team.
