By Rob Sidwell

Chet Lemons Juice winter camp was not only full of young middle infielders but also showed some talent in other positions. There were also several young two way talents. The following notes were from the rest of the 2016 class:

+ 3B/RHP Garret Milchin (West Orange HS, 2016) is a 6-foot-4, 175 pound third baseman and pitcher with a young tall loose lean athletic very projectable body. Has loose actions at third base with soft hands and the quick first step needed for that position. Shows plenty of arm strength and the ability to throw from different slots. Loose quick bat with a very good path. Stays inside ball well. Has wiry strength and leverage. Can drive ball to both gaps. Has power now with big power to come when that young body fills out. Ran a 7.1, 60 yard dash. Will be a 2016 draft.

Milchin is also a prospect on the mound. Has a high 3/4 slot with good downward tilt to the fastball and occasional sink. Has a loose easy working arm with a lot of upside. Delivery is in line. Takes ball out in line and lands in line with good extension out front. Fastball is 86-89 and occasionally touches 90. The curveball is 75-77 with 3/4 tilt and good depth. Very good rotation. Has feel for changeup at 81-82 mph. Commands the fastball now and throws secondary stuff for strikes. Stuff will improve with physical maturity. Very high ceiling. This kid will be a Major League prospect as a right handed pitcher and as a third baseman. Son of Mike Milchin, former major league pitcher. 

+ 3B Rigby Paxton  (Lake Brantley HS, 2016) is a 6-foot-3, 180 pound third baseman with a tall lean athletic projectable body and strong lower half. Decent actions at third base with enough arm. Good left handed swing with some power now and more power to come. Has looseness and quickness in his hands with a good path. Stays inside ball and keeps barrel in the zone. Corner bat. Good student. Son of Brad Rigby, former ML pitcher.

+ 1B Bernard Gilot (Apopka HS, 2016) is a 6-foot-1, 230 pound first baseman with a big thick wide strong body. Moves around bag well for big guy but limited to first base. Has good bat strength and bat speed for young guy. Shows average to above average major league power now. Shows power to both gaps with a good path and good approach. Stays inside ball with good hand eye. Is a home schooled kid.
