82 Hunter Bowling LHP – 2015 – Lake Worth – FL Late two plane action in low 80's – appeared to be just about handing it to the catcher with the long limbs of his 6-foot-7 inch frame
81 Andrew Cabezas RHP – 2015 – Miami Gardens – FL Sharp 11-5 action – around plate – 78-81 mph
71 Julian Infante RHP – 2015 – Cutler Bay – FL Spun it as well as anyone – really snapped a few – feel and consistency along with added velocity could come with more time on the mound
78 Cameron Kremers LHP – 2015 – Beeville – TX Threw upper 60's curve and upper 70's slider – had feel for both but slider had better depth and shape
75 Ryan McKay RHP – 2015 – Merritt Island – FL Depth to near 12-6 action in mid 70's from high slot
73 Philip Sieli RHP – 2015 – Wellington – FL Usable pitch he was able to throw in the zone – 11-5 shape with depth in the low 70's
73 Zachary Zubia RHP – 2016 – Richmond – TX Arm stroke has future power – curve had depth to 11-5 shape in low 70's – FB up to 84 but projectable for much more
