By Sean Duncan
Of the six primary shortstops at the 15th Annual Super 60, Ontario’s Dondrae Bremner and Indiana’s Adisyn Coffey were clear standouts for different reasons. Coffey showcased electric tools across the board, while the left-handed hitting Bremner put himself on the national draft radar with his easy athleticism and high-ceiling potential.
Here’s an in-depth look at all six shortstops who performed on February 5 at The Max in McCook, IL, listed alphabetically:
Dondrae Bremner, SS, Bill Crothers Secondary, ON
Cincinnati recruit. 6-foot-2, 175-pound left-handed hitting shortstop; rangy athletic build with wiry strength, overall high level of projection in the frame. Of all the talent at the Super 60, Bremner may have walked away the biggest winner of the event, chiefly because few outside of Canada knew about his abilities and upside. Has has showed steady development over the last three years, and it all came together at the Super 60. Offensively, he has loose, athletic hands, generates easy bat speed with a simple, repeatable swing and advanced pre-pitch rhythm while maintaining balance through contact. Easy line-drive approach with power potential as he physically matures; registered 89 mph exit velocity with wood. Athletically, he’s a fluid strider, ran a 6.78 laser-timed 60, looks like a trained track athlete in his movements. Natural athleticism shined defensively, showing excellent range and hands, capped by a highlight-reel sliding play up the middle in which he popped up and fired a strike to first base. Has all the requisite skills to stick at shortstop. Was clocked at 85 mph across the infield. ...
