TOP MOVERS IN THE RANKINGS

David Garrett 2B / OF / Bentonville, AR / 2023

The Bentonville infielder sees a rise in the rankings to number 81 in the class after a strong showing at the Natural State Games in October.  Garrett shows quick hands through the zone from the left side of the plate with a line drive approach.  Defensively Garret shows active feet and expanded range with a strong feel for glove action.   

 

 

Abe Owen 3B / 1B / Cabot, AR / 2023

The corner infielder from Cabot sees his stock rise after showing his physicality at the plate at last month's Natural State Games.  The right-handed hitter jumped all over balls during BP with exit velocities up to 97 mph with elite bat speed.  Teams looking for a currently uncommitted power hitter should take an extra look at Owen.

Ellison checks into the rankings for the first time after showing a well-rounded game at the Natural State Games back in October.  The Russellville infielder ran a 7.25 60 and showed some strength in the barrel with exit velocities up to 94 mph.  Ellison showed strong overall bat speed and quick hands working through the zone from the right side with natural lift to the swing.
