We have updated our 2016 rankings based on what we have seen at our PBR showcases, practices, indoor workouts, along with other events over the cold winter months. With the spring season approaching we expanded our player rankings.

We are less than a week away from the start of practice for high school baseball in the state Michigan. The Michigan 2016 class has had made big strides in the off-season. Several pitchers in the 2016 class have seen velocity increases as we enter the spring and you will see the result of that within the updated rankings.

Below we take a look at "What's New At The Top", "The Risers", as well as "The Newcomers".
