Scouting Report

8/22/21
One of the top 2024 prospects in the state of Colorado and Athan didn’t disappoint. Great composure and repeatable delivery. Fastball ranged from 81-85, topping out at 86.1. Strike thrower with high ¾ release gives opportunity for arm side run and he has feel for off speed. Very high ceiling and projectability.


1/20/22
Kroll is one third-ranked 2024 in Colorado and came in at No. 350 in the national rankings following his commitment to Dallas Baptist this past December. The 6-foot-3, 170-pound right-hander impressed over the past year with a fastball that sat comfortably in the mid-to-low 80s. It's a high ceiling from Kroll and our staff is excited to see how he looks next month for the first time in the 2022.
