Josh Morgan AB Continue to Draw Crowds Of Scouts

Orange Lutheran senior SS Josh Morgan (UCLA commit) drew a crowd for each of his at bats, and was among the most notably difficult to see guys for me along with Braxton Davidson. It seemed like the two of them either walked or got hit by a pitch most commonly. He has an athletic build at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, and appears to have skills to play a variety of spots in the field. He hits from a open stance and makes an aggressive pass, not always getting off his back foot – resulting in some length to his stroke and making for some glancing contact. There are some things to work with here, and in a longer look I think it would become more clear what kind of guy he could develop into.

Much like Evan Dougherty of Bishop Verot, another CF and DI commit, I was intrigued by senior CF Joey Sanchez (Long Beach State commit). I missed his at bats by a single spot in the order several times, but saw enough to like the body and the actions along with the way he tracked pitches. He hit in the bottom of the order, which can be confusing at times, but had the pieces of a guy with a chance to hit in the brief looks I got.

RHP Garrett King Allows Only 2 Hits in CG Gem

Orange Lutheran senior right hander Garrett King, a Univ. of Nebraska commit and 2013 Under Armour Pre-Season All American Tournament participant, threw a complete game gem for the Lancers. He allowed only two hits and issued no free bases, and struck out six over six innings of work. At 6-foot-4 and 175 pounds he has leverage to drive his pitches on a good angle down to the bottom of the zone. A lone earned run was the difference in this pitchers duel between he and Touki Toussaint of Coral Springs Christian. He was efficient and filled up the zone, going right after hitters.
