Updated Class of 2024 Player Rankings (August)

The 2024 class in New England is loaded with talent. Numerous players are off the board already but many still are left to be seen and evaluated. This spring and into the summer is a crucial time for this up and coming class. We look forward to see them progress.

Below we will take a look at “Who's At The Top”, "The Risers", "The Sleepers" and "Top Uncommitted By Position".

Covering six states, New England is a prime area for legit baseball talent and now we would like to bring to you the 2024 Player Rankings.

What's New At The Top?

  • Gabriel Tirado remains our #1 ranked prospect in the 2024 class as he just finished up putting on a show at the Underclass Area Codes.
  • Ryan Puglisi, the third-ranked prospect is a two-sport star, shows feel and arm speed on the mound.
  • Anthony Ruggiero, has moved up in the rankings to #5 as he showed well at the Future Games.
  • Jaden Novak, the seventh ranked prospect is a polished catcher, can really throw it, with gap juice.
  • Jack LaRose, is the eighth ranked prospect. LaRose is a left-handed hitter, super smooth swing, can really swing it, its to all fields.
  • Beau Elson, the 10th ranked prospect, is a left-handed pitcher with a huge upside. He displays a power arm with the makings of a plus slider.
  • Drew Smith, right-hander out of Maine comes in at #11, continues to impress on the summer circuit. All of these young men have moved up within our rankings, deservedly so.


  • Tommy Mitchell, big and long left-hander prospect.He had a big time summer and polished it off with his commitment to Elon.
  • Fletcher Waterman, right-handed hitting catcher. Showed extremely well at the event. His defense is outstanding and the bat has strength in it.
  • Owen Tahnk, quick armed right-hander who showed well at the Future Games and is committed to Harvard.
  • Jake Hajdu, one of my favorite players in the class. He can flat out play.   Whomever gets him, will be lucky as he is presently getting overlooked. He does everything above average on the field.
  • Eliot Medlock, had a ridiculous showing in Atlanta as he went off with the bat.
  • Cameron Papetti had a really big summer, as the bat really made a significant jump.
  • Colin Crowley, left-handed hitting middle infielder showed very well at the Future Games.
  • Chase Mendela, another left-handed hitting infielder, little undersized, put on a show in game play at the Future Games.
  • Gabe Tanous, a right-handed hitting middle infielder, shows plus actions and can really run.
  • Andrew Rondini, a right-handed pitcher, pitched extremely well at the future games, a three pitch pitcher.

The SleepERS

  • Jake Cullen, long and durable right-hander, his best days are in front of him. He showed very well in Atlanta.
  • Cole Taylor, thick and durable right-hander has plus stuff and a bulldog mentality.
  • Jake Zawatsky, ultra quick arm and good feel for what he is doing. 
  • Hunter Kingsbury, left-handed hitting infielder whose bat is very established.
  • Will Cooke is another infielder who hits from the left-side. The bat is above average and the glove plays.
  • Matthew Wood, a left-handed pitcher, showed very well at 2 events this summer, fastball up to 85 mph, with heavy action.
  • James Faganant, a left-handed hitter, comes from great stock, can really swing it from the left side.
