The Sophomore Fall Classic gave us an early look at an exciting 2020 class in the state. This article includes reports on some of the standouts and gives a sneak peak at some of the top prospects in our soon to be released 2020 rankings. As always please keep us posted on any commitments/news via email at banfield@prepbaseballreport.com or DM on Twitter at @PBRArizona

Carson Tucker SS / Mountain Pointe, AZ / 2020

5-foot-11 160-pounds. The sophomore makes everything he does on the baseball field look easy. Possessing soft hands and advanced actions, Tucker is already a very solid defender at SS with a chance to get even better as he matures and becomes more athletic. Offensively he has very loose wrists that produce excellent bat speed for his age. There’s tons of room left for physical development and as a senior we could be looking at an elite level national prospect.

 

 

 

 

Tyler Davis RHP / OF / Sunrise Mountain, AZ / 2020

Listed 6-foot-1 175-pounds, but looks closer to 190. Impressive strength for a 2020; projects to be very physical prospect. Shows elite raw power in BP although swing can tend to get a bit long in game action. Worked 86-7 with his fastball on the mound and will be high-level RHP prospect. 

 

 

 

 

Jacob Berry 1B / 3B / Queen Creek, AZ / 2020

5-foot-11 200-pounds. Very strong, physically mature, square frame. Was consistently on time against high level pitching. Showed advanced feel for the strike zone and elite bat-to-ball ability. Showed plenty of present power to be an impact bat at the next level. Defensive ability currently profiles best to 1B/DH. Did not have an opportunity to see him hit from the right side.

 

 

 

Michael Brueser OF / Hamilton, AZ / 2020

6-foot-1 180-pounds. Very well proportioned frame, projects to maintain athleticism as he adds bulk and continues to mature physically.  Balanced athletic setup at plate, loads hands deep and generates good extension with swing. Rangy defender showed well in CF on the weekend.
