The event is huge draw for college with many of the top uncommitted players from across the country in attendance. The Prep Baseball Report services are also subscribed by more than 800 colleges and pro scouts.

The following days players will compete in live game setting vs teams & top players from other states.

2023 OF Anthony Diaz JOINS TEAM ARIZONA

2023 OF Anthony Diaz (Catalina Foothills)- 6-foot-2, 170-pounds, long athletic frame with projectable body, has added some lean strength. Baseball in blood, dad is the 3B coach for the MN Twins. Sets up in an athletic base with slightly open stance. Uses a small simple leg lift with repeatability. Loads barrel vertically, slotting as he starts his swing. Showed some ability to drive the ball while working from an inverted swing path Consistently works the ball in the air with middle approach, 92 mph exit velocity via trackman. High upside as a left-handed hitter as he cleans up the path & slots the barrel more efficiently, power potential to come. Has some feel to hit but there is room for refinement and should see an increased ability to find the barrel in the future with his athleticism. Athletic footwork with confident first step, ran a 6.85 60-yard dash at our Top Prospect Games. Creates angles by rounding the baseball. Keeps momentum going with some speed. Arm continues to improve, showing some carry at 82mph. Quick clean transfers & release. Development should be followed closely.
