Underclass Games - Outfield Analysis

By: PBR Georgia Staff

PBR Georgia hosted the annual Underclass Games at LakePoint Sports in Emerson, Ga. on June 7th. This yearly invite-only event for the top uncommitted 2024-2026s in the state brought together over 100 prospects for a pro-style workout and live game play. This event has historically acted as a gateway to the PBR Future Games, and 2022 was no different.

In the days following the event, we produced a number of stat based post-event analysis that included a look at the traditional stats measured within our Stats Story piece, in addition to leaderboards for the various TrackMan metrics collected during batting practice and gameplay.

We began our post-event scouting reports yesterday with the catchers. Today, we continue to work our way around the diamond with individual reports on the outfielders. In the coming days we will release the infielders and pitchers, followed by a listing of the top overall prospects. Keep reading to see the top-11 outfielders plus reports on all the outfielders in attendance.

Top Outfield Prospects

Owen Anchors, Dunwoody (GA), 2024
Positional Profile: OF/1B One of the top left-handed bats in the state, high level defender at 1B, enough athleticism for CF.
Body: 6-foot-3, 180-pounds. Long and strong frame with athleticism and room to add on
Hit: LHH. Wide setup with relaxed hands, keeps it simple, mostly static, smooth load back coupled with a short stride, great balance and consistency. Short path with a heavy barrel through the zone, gets extended and lifts the ball with present power, ball jumps off bat, real power to all fields.
Power: 99.2 max exit velocity, averaged 86.6 mph. 353’ max distance. Big power potential
Arm: LH. INF - 81 mph. OF - 83 mph. Short, loose arm action to a high ¾ slot, some carry, accurate.
Defense: Fields somewhat upright fielder, supremely confident with glove hand at first base, attacks the ball in the outfield, quick and clean with exchanges, athletic feet.
Run: 7.12 runner in the 60.

Marquis Mitchell, Georgia Premier Academy (GA), 2024
Positional Profile: SS/OF Elite athlete who has rare traits - bat speed, athleticism, separation timing, aggressiveness. Raw but very timed up and hard to beat with FB's.
Body: 6-foot-1, 160-pounds. Slender frame, lean twitchy muscle, long levers.
Hit: RHH. Tall posture, feet and knees angled inside a wide base with a steady, vertical barrel, hands set just below back shoulder with very quiet but twitchy movement in one spot.  Poetry in motion as hips start swing. At the exact time they touch & go off the backside, it signals a perfectly timed separation as the barrel slowly tilts into launch position. Gets optimal stretch from core & chest rotating gradually to back hip in stride. The timing of this stretch at landing creates unreal torque. Some sweep in path to contact due to slight arm bar, but hands are so fast he gets away with it easily. Small adjustment, front elbow just needs to gradually bend as he throws hands and through the path. Back elbow tucks in sequence, strong thru contact.
Power: 92.5 max exit velocity, averaged 87.6 mph. 322’ max distance. Standout juice to the pull-side with optimal trajectory. oppo pop
