The Uncommitted Spotlight Series continues as we have started the '24 CIF High School baseball season Prep Baseball California is now highlighting some of the top uncommitted class of '25 athletes. The players featured are pulled directly from our '25 Class Rankings. These JR year players are ones that college coaches and fans should be keeping their eyes on over the coming months.

We invite you to get to know them through the eyes of our Prep Baseball California staff of scouts and the data-backed numbers collected at our events with our partnered companies. TrackMan, Blast Motion, Swift Performance, and Visual Edge provide comparable data to project and evaluate players. All of these systems come together to give a clear picture at what colleges will get when a players steps onto their campus.

Today, we put the spotlight on a SoCal '25 C/3B Arthur Chavez from Redlands East Valley High School. Chavez checks in with a strong 6'2 185 lbs and shows the actions behind the plate to stay there long term while adding in a quality LH bat which shows potential. With a quick LH swing that shows torque in the turn of the swing with a rotational acceleration metric up to 18.9 G's flashing solid bat speed at 74 MPH with quickness in the hands at 23.4 MPH the overall swing has quality metrics. Chavez showed solid raw power at the Prep Baseball California Future Games Tryout in 2023 with a max exit velocity at 91.1 MPH while averaging 86.2 MPH with a max distance of 332'. The arm works behind the plate with quickiness in the transfer and 74 MPH C arm velocity while showing a 2.02 pop time with accuracy to the bag, but still needs to polish how his lower 1/2 works to take his throwing to the next level. Shows moblity in his lower 1/2 to get into a 1 knee down stance with solid glove work and feel to present pitches efficiently. College programs who are looking for LH bats in the '25 class would be well served to add Chavez to their board for his offensive ability and ability to stick at a premium defensive spot with quality defense.
