Coming in at the No. 5 most viewed profile in 2016 is Cherry Creek HS and Texas Tech Commit OF/RHP Tanner O'Tremba with 1426 views. Here is a look at his current profile.



A 6-foot-0, 210-pound right hand hitter. O'Tremba has a motor that doesn't turn off. In the Top Prospect Games he went a total of 5-6, but what impressed the PBR staff was his hustle double off a routine single. O'Tremba ran a 6.9 laser timed 60, the 3rd fastest time at the event. At the plate he hits from a slightly open stance and uses a leg kick for timing now to come square.  He shows extremely quick hands to the ball, and good hip rotation at contact.  He registered a showcase best 96 MPH exit velocity (We have had at 97 in past events). In the field he is smooth through the ball and has a good over the top delivery. Ranges very well going back on ball stealing what looked like a no-brainer double.  He had an 84 MPH arm velocity from . O'Tremba is one of the top players to follow in the 2018 class. 


The No. 1 overall 2018 Otremba has taken Cherry Creek and put them on his shoulders. He has been a one man wrecking crew at the plate. In the 5A district playoffs the weekend before O'Tremba helped Cherry Creek win both district games by going 5 for 7 with a double, HR, and 4 RBI's. The homerun in the first inning was off an 87 mph fastball and set the tone against the No. 2 overall seed Regis Jesuit. Cherry Creek won both games 11-0. O'Tremba carried his momentum to this past weekend by going 5 for 9 with 6 RBI's and another homerun to lead Cherry Creek to the 5A Final Four. Currently O'Tremba is hitting .496 on the season with 34 RBI's and 6 homeruns.


A 6-foot-0, 210-pound right hand hitter who ran a 4.18 home to first, 4th fastest of the showcase.  At the plate he hits from a slightly open stance with a small stride to come square.  He shows quick hands to the ball and good hip rotation at contact.  He registered a showcase best 95 MPH exit velocity.  In the field he is smooth through the ball and has a good over the top delivery.  He had an 81 MPH arm velocity.


6-foot, 210 pounds. Bats and throws right. O'tremba is a very explosive player. Looks like a full back and plays the game extremely hard. O'tremba uses a slightly open stance and has an explosive swing. He can keeps his hands back, and also turn on a fastball. Has a big load, and uses leg kick to start a swing that is explosive on contact that generated an impressive 97 mph exit velocity off a tee. Has gap to gap power. In the outfield has a lot of speed for his size, and proved it with a 6.87 60 time. Strong arm at 84 mph. On the mound was consistently 85-86 mph with a high of 88, and he just chose to blow his fastball by the hitters this weekend. In games in the spring we have seen curve ball with 11/5 shape at 67 mph. Hides the ball well, and is square to the plate then falls off towards first base side after landing with strong leg drive. Very high player to follow.


No 28 Overall 2018. 5-foot-11, 200 pounds. Bats and throws right. Slightly open stance, right handed hitter.  Has a big load, powerful leg kick.  For a freshman he flashes exceptional hip torque on swing.  Quick hands to the inside pitch but also shows the smarts to get his hands to and through an outer half pitch, taking it to the opposite field.  Has good power for a freshman and has the potential to become a consistent big threat at the plate these coming years.  When I watch Tanner he is a raw and rugged throwback player.  Not concerned with looking good, just makes the plays and plays hard.  Noticed he likes to swing at 1st pitch fastballs often.  He made a notable highlight gem of a catch on a short fly ball.  Full head of steam coming forward had to slide to make the catch, then had the awareness to come up and fire the ball to 1B doubling up the runner. Is hitting .400 on the season with 21 RBI's and 5 homeruns.


Shows advanced bat-speed for a freshman.  Bats and throws right.  Is hitting clean-up right now for the Bruins. Starts with a slight crouch, open stance. Gets money's worth at the plate. Hit bases loaded single up the middle to put the game out of reach. Came into pitch and was throwing 85 mph topping out twice at 87. Good velos for a 2018. Threw k's and hides the ball well. Square to the plate then falls off towards first base side after landing. High player to follow.
