PBR Nevada ProCase Preview: Alumni


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

We are less than a week out from the second annual PBR Nevada ProCase, taking place at the College of Southern Nevada this upcoming Sunday. This event is designed to create a hyper focused opportunity for the top prospects the Silver State has to offer in the 2022 and 2023 classes with a majority of Major League Baseball teams committed to attend.

The Class of 2022 features a handful of premium level prospects highlighted by Nevada's #1 ranked player, Justin Crawford, who is set to attend Louisiana State University next Fall, but is projected to be a potential top round pick in the 2022 Major League Baseball Draft. Following him, is a pair of SEC commits in McQueen's Robby Snelling and Basic's Mason Neville that have also produced significant Summer performances with their Draft stock continuing to parallel that rise. Reno's toolsy two-way standout and reigning Northern Nevada Player of the Year, Greyson Grinsell, has also seen his stock trend in the right direction after a successful Area Code Games to go along with his PBR Verified present tools that make him a very intriguing follow heading into the Spring. To round out the Top 5 in Nevada's 2022 Class, you have Georgia Tech commit, Demitri Diamant, who has seen his game take off over the past year both on the mound, where his has been up to 93 mph, and at the plate, where he has seen his projected power turn into present power throughout the Fall season.

Along with the highlighting the top 2022 prospects, this event also features the top 2023 prospects, providing on opportunity for the MLB Scouts to get a preview of what is to come in the next year. Nevada's 2023 Class is a notably deep class with prospects well beyond the Top 10 ranked players. Headlined by Uncommitted two-way, Zane Kelly, and followed closely by recent UNLV commit, Gunnar Myro, this event will feature a majority of the states top 2023 prospects. St. Mary's commit, Kamdyn Perry, Nevada's top Uncommitted right hander, LJ Mercurius, and athletic Long Beach State commit, Jet Gilliam, round out the stacked Top 5 2023 prospects set to attend the PBR Nevada ProCase and are looking to solidify themselves as legitimate projected professional prospects. 

Today, we begin our PBR Nevada ProCase Preview with the Alumni from last year's inaugural event.
