Ronald Sims
Mississippi Scouting Director

The 2017 Prep Baseball Report Future Games has come and gone, as 3 uncommitted underclass prospects for the state of Mississippi descended onto Grand Park in Westfield, IN for the annual, prestigious event. Over 250 college coaches from across the country were on-hand to watch the top uncommitted prospects in the Prep Baseball Report coverage area compete over a 4-day span.

Over the course of the last few weeks, our scouting staff has compiled complete analysis of the 3 Mississippi prospects who represented the state on the national stage the Future Games created.

Today, our scouting staff wraps up the 2017 Future Games coverage with a final recap of each player's performance, including video from the weekend in early August.

Video & Player Analysis

Landon Rascoe RHP / SS / Hattiesburg , MS / 2019

Athletic 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame. Long, loose, quick arm action from a high-3/4 arm slot.  Strong at balance position, working in-line and downhill with dominate front side, some effort and good finish to the plate. The baseball jumps out of his hand, sitting 88-92 mph with late life and deception to his fastball. Secondary stuff is still developing, but he flashed the ability to spin a tight breaking ball at times, with 11/5 shape and depth at 70-74 mph and a change up with occasional sink at 75-77 mph. Slider was 77 mph with good spin.



Turner Swistak RHP / 3B / Oak Grove, MS / 2020

Lean, athletic 6-foot-2, 170-pound frame. Right-handed hitting third baseman that hits from wide and balanced setup. Loads with a subtle shift of weight, dead hands and short stride with a line drive approach and slight up-hill path, recording an 86 mph exit velocity. Defensively showed fluid footwork, decent hands, occasionally fielding on heels while working through athletically. Short arm action into high-3/4 release with accuracy on throws, posting a positional velocity of 81 mph. Ran a 7.63 60-yard dash. Right-handed pitcher with short arm action into high-3/4 release, quick arm speed and normal effort. Solid rhythm, level shoulders, in-line direction, and finishes athletically.
