Updated Colorado 2020 Rankings


John Cackowski
Director of Scouting

 

In the winter of 2016 PBR Colorado released our first ever 2020 rankings which consisted of 40 players. In the past two years Prep Baseball Report Colorado has had the opportunity to cover amateur baseball like no other organization has ever been able to do before in the state of Colorado. Between scouting numerous games last spring and summer, and having a great opportunity to see more 2020 grads at the Underclass Invitational in January, and the Top Prospect Games last summer, and also while scouting spring and summer games, including our first year of our Colorado Summer Scout League.  We were able to move our 2020 ranking list to 140 players. 

 

JACK MOSS3B / RHP / CHERRY CREEK, CO / 2020

Committed to Virginia. 6-foot-4, 185-pound left hand hitting 1B/3B. Balanced setup, smooth load, short stride and maintains balance through contact. Compact, fluid, repeatable swing, creates bat speed, consistent hard contact; 90 mph exit velocity from a tee. Defensively, moves well left and right.  Shows quick athletic actions and funnels into exchange, ¾ arm slot, throws topped at 79 mph. Great presence and footwork in the field and around the bag. Moss last spring hit .297 last spring driving in 22 runs wit 8 doubles. Moss also contributed 28 innings on the mound going 3-1 with a 2.97 ERA in 28 innings. 

 

 

 

 

 

COLBY SHADEOF / OF / FORT COLLINS, CO / 2020

Committed to Virginia. 6-foot-1, 165-pound right hand hitting OF. Fast-twitched player. High hips stood out, looks like there is a lot more room to grow. Probably will end up 6-foot-4, 190 pounds.  Very athletic. Lower half is solid through the zone. Pull-side power right now. Gets good extension through the ball and after. In the field he glides to the ball, he is aggressive fielding through the ball and delivers an on target throw. Very athletic and uses his speed to close the gap on balls. Arm is accurate to the bag. Helped lead Fort Collins to an upset win against a good Douglas County team in 5A District play with a game saving throw from CF in the bottom of the 7th inning. Recently at the Top Prospect Games Shade posted an exit velo of 93 mph, and an arm velo of 86 mph. Most impressive was his 6.6 60 time. Last season hit .339 with 20 stolen bases. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jenner Kehe RHP / SS / Lakewood, CO / 2020

Uncommitted Kehe recently came off an impressive Future Games for Team Select striking out the side in his first outing with an athletic delivery and loose arm. His fastball lived 85-87, and created a buzz in the stands. With his thin, wiry frame, everyone can see how much more there is to come. His curve sat 71-72 mph, and threw an impressive chance with arm side fade. In game 2 Kehe would enter the 4th inning, and pitched another clean inning living 85 to 87 again with the fastball. Kehe throws a change with same arm speed as fastball at 74 mph with late fade. Kehe on the weekend pitched 2 innings striking out 3, and only gave up one hit without giving up a run. With Kehe's body frame showing more to come, expect him to have multiple options and offers from Power 5 schools. 


 



 

 

 

 

 

 

Declan Wiesner C / OF / Valor Christian, CO / 2020

Uncommitted. Wiesner wrapped up a successful 2018 Future games. An athletic catcher at 6-foot, 190 pounds, Wiesner has advanced bat speed offensively, which was evident at the Future Games with a 94 mph exit velo. Wiesner, does a good job controlling the game behind the dish. Wiesner has soft hands receiving behind the plate with good ability to block from both sides. Also demonstrates the ability to be a good field general. Arm velo down to 2B is 80 mph. Also impressed with a 6.98 60 time for a catcher at the Future Games. Last spring Wiesner hit .302 flashing gap to gap power to help lead Valor Christian to their 3rd consecutive 4A state championship. It's a matter of not if but when Wiesner chooses from multiple options to go D-1 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LUCAS QUEZADARHP / 1B / HERITAGE HIGH SCHOOL, CO / 2020

Uncommitted. 6-foot, 180 pounds. Bats left, throws right. Closer to 5-foot-10, but everything is super effortless, and he repeats it in an advanced manner given his age. Arm is quick, and he painted his fastball from side to side down in the zone. Fastball is 85-87. Stays linear. Throws a straight changeup with fastball arm speed for strikes and a slurve that has 11/5 shape at 72-73 mph, but is still developing. Change is 74-75 mph. Last spring helped lead Heritage to the 5A state championship game going 2 and 1 on the mound throwing 22 innings.
