Looking at the roster, there will be plenty of players making this event their first Prep Baseball Report showcase. Of the players we have seen in the past, there should be a number of players to keep an eye on.

Jimmy DeAngelo (Hall, 2019), a 6-foot-3, 210-pound, two-way prospect, showed well at the Class of 2019 showcase this fall and is currently ranked No. 83 in the class. DeAngelo ran his fastball up to 86 mph and showed some strength in his right-handed bat.

Some other 2019 arms to keep an eye on will be Gavin Wahlbrink (Chatham-Glenwood), Ryan Rhoda (Prairie Central) and Andrew Pogue (Dunlap), among others. Reports have had Pogue up to 87 mph as of late.

There are a number of others who are poised to emerge at the event.
