Everett Bertsch RHP / C / Riverside, BC / 2025

The uncommitted two way out of Coquitlam had one of the better overall days in Vancouver. It started on the mound where he sat 85-86 mph with the fastball that had carry when up in the zone. Mixed in a tight slider with 2-plane break at 74-76 mph that he could spin north of 2300 rpm. He finished it off with a changeup at 77-78 mph with arm side run and late fading action. At the plate, he consistently worked back up the middle maintaining controlled aggression and reaching a max EV of 90.3 mph. Behind the dish, he had the top catching numbers. Collecting a POP time of 1.84 and catcher velocity of 79 mph. Bertsch jumped onto the scene in Vancouver and will be an intriguing follow going forward.

Logan Booth OF / RHP / GW GRaham, BC / 2025

Booth is a very intriguing outfielder product out of the Langley Blaze. With a 6’1 212 lb frame, the lefty bat is built to do damage at the plate. He showcased quick hands and solid torque starting from his lower half. The swing plane proved to be a gap to gap approach reaching exit velos as high as 92.8mph. Aside from his swing, Booth moved well in the outfield with a 7.03 60 yard dash and showed off arm strength at 85mph. Booth will be an exciting player to watch in the upcoming 2024 season. Look for this uncommitted 2025 to make an immediate impact in the Blazes lineup.

Evan Dugdale OF / RHP / Meadow Ridge, BC / 2025

Arguably one of the top two way talents in BC, Dugdale led the way to the top of the ranks in multiple metrics at the Fall ID Open. The uncommitted RHP/OF had the top FB velo (87.3mph), exit velo (94.2mph), 60 yard dash (6.71) and tied Booth for OF velo (85mph). Beyond the metrics, Dugdale moved well in the OF with sound foot work and momentum through the ball. On the mound, the 2025 over the top arm was athletic with quick arm actions. Dugdale’s fastball ranged from 86.2-87.1mph with an average spin rate of 2434 rpm. There was tight sweeping action on his curveball with fade and depth on his changeup. This two way player is a must see in BC and should be very enticing to multiple post secondary programs.

Jake Fehr RHP / Sands, BC / 2025

One of the better bullpens on the day came from Fehr, a Delta Blue Jays product. He started with the fastball which sat 83-85 mph. He averaged 17.8 inches of IVB and added some slight cut to it to eliminate some arm side run and add to the carry on it. Fehr also possesses two effective secondary pitches. The slider, at 72-73 mph, averages -20.7 inches of HB and can spin it 2500+ rpm. The changeup pairs well with the fastball at 73-74 mph and has plenty of arm side run (21.4 inches of HB). It has late depth when down in the zone, inducing lots of ground balls and swing and miss. Fehr has both impressive movement profiles and the ability to spin the ball which projects well as he continues to develop.

Maddock Day RHP / OF / École Salish , BC / 2024

Although Day won’t blow you away with velocity, it’s his pitch profiles that are the most impressive. His fastball, at 78-79 mph, has 22.7 inches of HB and just 4.2 inches of IVB. The changeup profiles similarly with slightly less HB at 18.1 inches. The curveball has two-plane break (-10.0 inches of IVB, -14.9 inches of HB) and plays well off the fastball out of the same arm slot sitting 67-69 mph. Mixing these 3 offerings effectively at the bottom of the zone will allow Day to generate weak contact and plenty of swing and miss. The Cloverdale product has jumped onto the scene and will be an intriguing follow and he heads into the offseason.

Nicklas Ohman LHP / 1B / Oak Bay, BC / 2024

An uncommitted 6’4 LHP product from the Victoria Eagles showed promising tools on the mound. Ohman filled the zone with a FB, CB, CH mix. His fastball was 82.1-83.9 and topped 84.6 with a 2249 rpm spin rate. The arm side run on the fastball was complimented well with his sweeping curveball low and in the strike zone. The curveball sat 70-73 with a 2409 rpm spin rate. Lastly, Ohmans changeup proved to be an effective ground ball pitch spinning at a 1692 rpm. His changeup sat 75-77, a 5-8 mph dip in velocity off his fastball. The big lefty had major success this fall and is trending in the right direction. Strong outings with positive results are imminent for him this upcoming spring season with the Eagles.
