TOP RAW POWER
Name Bio Remarks
Kevin Barbato C/OF – 2015 – Palmetto Bay – FL Has ability to impact the ball – stroke more suited for line drives now – long levers at 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds – future power
Isaiah Cullum C – 2015 – Bushnell – FL Impacted the ball very well – especially to the opposite field – drove the ball very well from left center around thru right center – climbing backspin after good exit from barrel
Max Guzman 1B/3B – 2016 – Miami – FL Impressive ability to impact the ball – doesn't look to make contact but instead to harm the ball – drove with authority from LF around to RCF
Jonathan India SS – 2015 – Coral Springs – FL Power is generated as byproduct of hard line drives from gap to gap – more suited for doubles than to get the ball up in the air and out of the ballpark – though he is certainly capable of that as well
Julian Infante 3B – 2015 – Cutler Bay – FL Got the ball up in the air easily – drove quite a few a long way to pull side in both BP and also in game at bats on day two – makes a full move with speed and strength applied thru contact
JP Lagreco C – 2015 – Pearl River – LA Got the ball up in the air with ease to the pull side in BP – made good passes against good stuff in game at bats – power appears to be usable – strong with broad shoulders – projectable power
Desmond Lindsay 1B – 2015 – Bradenton – FL Combination of speed and strength thru contact allowed him to drive the ball a long way to CF and RCF – hit a couple of opposite field HR and drove it off the top of the fence just to RCF side of batters eye in a big ballpark (400+ feet with wood bat) – put on a truly impressive display of power to a rarely visited part of the field for a right handed hitter
Angel Lopez C – 2015 – Canovanas – PR Hitting ability appears to be ahead of raw power – able to drive balls past CF to both gaps – backspin line drives that travel
Hernen Sardinas OF – 2016 – Miami – FL Easily drove balls out to pull side with wood bat – has ability to impact the ball – strong thru contact
Bryan Scheker OF – 2015 – Clermont – FL Best power may be to right center field – have seen it from him several times now – loose and easy thru contact to create backspin – generates power without changing regular approach
Zachary Zubia 1B – 2016 – Richmond – TX Ball jumped off bat – drove easily from gap to gap
