With the Top Prospect Games quickly approaching, we will be taking a look at a number of players to watch in the Prospect Preview leading into Nevada's largest event of the summer hosted Las Vegas Ballpark. This event will features some of the top players from the 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024 classes who will be analyzed and assess with the help of the most advanced technology in baseball, TrackMan and Blast Motion. Day 1 will feature a Pro-Style workout where players will be running a Laser Timed 60, Batting Practice session using Blast Motion to analyze In-Swing Data and TrackMan to assess Post Contact Metrics, Outfield Evaluations, Infield Evaluations and Catcher Evaluations. Day 2 will include Live-Streamed game play that will allow some of the top arms in the state to showcase their abilities against some of the best bats Nevada has to offer. 

Brandon Escobar

Escobar comes into the Top Prospect Games as one of the top prospects you may not know about. After transferring to Green Valley following his freshman year at Slam Academy, he we not able to play at the varsity level until his junior year which was unfortunately taken away. The middle infielder was one of the few 2021 prospects to make the Dodgers Scout Team last fall and made the most of his opportunity by racking up quality at-bats against the nationally recognized pitching staff at the College of Southern Nevada. The scrappy, left-handed hitting prospect continued to make strides through this summer, adding some polish to his game while playing the Midwest and South for a talented D-Backs Elite 16U team. This is a prospect who may not be on the board much longer and we are looking forward to him putting his confident play on display at the end of the month.
