Joe Dattoli
West Coast Director of Operations

Before the new year, many PBR states take the time to highlight the most viewed player profiles during the previous year from their respective areas. These views can come from scouts, coaches, players, family, etc. Coaches & scouts even have the ability to do advanced searches for players from our dashboard using key metrics & parameters. PBR has the ability to track how many views are going into each profile for personal use. Before the new year, we will be highlighting the Top-10 most view player profiles of 2020.

Today, we highlight the No. 5 spot on our list for Nevada:

Scouting Report

 

Arizona recruit. Listed at 6-foot-4, 190-pounds, Whitaker has a lean and athletic frame, and remains compact throughout a polished, repeatable delivery. Exit velocity topping out at 103 with a smooth swing. Whitaker possesses a flat through the zone bat path and an average bat speed of 73.5 mph. Combine that with a 6.5 sixty time, and Whitaker has tools to be a dominant gap to gap hitter at the next level. Defensively, he can project well in both OF and INF spots. He has the ability to read balls off the bat well and compliments it with a strong 93mph arm. In the INF, Whitaker has a good understanding of varying arm angles to make a good throw.
