NYS Games: Team 3 Preview


Jared Carrier
Scouting Director



Catchers

Tyler Holmes C / 3B / Fairport, NY / 2019

Frontline catcher on both sides of the ball. Consistent sub 2.0 pop time with an arm that holds it's carry; power/average potential at the plate. Future middle of the lineup player. 

 

 

Andrew Sanchez C / Rush-Henrietta, NY / 2019

High end offensive player who has improved each time out behind the plate. Open stance with some juice through the middle of the field to his pull side. Solid all-around athlete who runs a 6.92 60.

 

 

Jordan Maher C / OF / Midlakes , NY / 2019

Open setup at the plate with some pre-pitch action; line drive approach with hard pull-side contact. Looking for him to pull it all together behind the plate as the tools are there to succeed. 

 

 

Benjamin Beauchamp C / OF / McQuaid Jesuit, NY / 2019

Great athlete with high-end offensive capabilities. Can pound the pull side gap and be an overall tough out. Arm strength and footwork are solid behind the plate; also very comfortable in the outfield. 

 

 

First Base

Josh Van Bramer 1B / LHP / Fairport, NY / 2019

6-foot-1 195 pound L/L who is an active defender around the bag. Aggressive, attack mode at the plate with middle of the field line drive results. Will work in the 80-82 range on the mound; arm-side run to FB with late fading change up. 

 

 


Keith Murphy 1B / RHP / Sweet home , NY / 2019

Solid frame at 6-foot-0 210 pounds. Bats Left/Throws right; sweeping swing through the zone with an 89 MPH exit velocity. On the mound the RHP works from a 3/4 slot with a 12-to-6 CB; FB range in early March was 77-79 MPH. 

 

 


Middle Infielders

Noah Campanelli SS / 2B / McQuaid Jesuit, NY / 2019

High end defender with plus+ lateral range; can make the play on the move and throw from multiple angles. Arm strength (89 MPH) and foot speed (6.93) both made significant jumps over the winter. Clean stroke into the zone with an elevated 2-hand finish. 

 

 


Casey Saucke II SS / RHP / Greece Athena, NY / 2021

Highly athletic 2021 grad who projects as a legitimate dual position prospect. Runs a 6.98 60 and shows a strong left side arm (88 MPH). Open setup at the plate with a toe-tap; quick hands middle in. On the mound he'll work in the mid 80's with an above average change up.

 

 


Jim Marasco  SS / Webster Thomas, NY / 2019

Wiry strong middle infielder with a short, line drive stroke. Repeats efforts at the plate. Active defender; no panic approach. Works in the upper 70's with a late action slider at 71-72 MPH. 

 

 


Santino Rosso SS / 2B / Victor , NY / 2019

High energy, fast twitch player with some zone acceleration at the plate (switch hitter). Soft actions with the glove, stays active with footwork. Clean release and easy arm that has room for more. 

 

 


Third Base

Gage Ziehl 3B / RHP / Penfield, NY / 2021

Burst onto the scene last summer and upped the ante this winter on the mound. Offensive player at 3B; open stance with consistent hard contact. Easy left side arm from 3B. On the mound Ziehl is a bulldog with above average velocity for his grad year in the mid 80's, touching 87 MPH in February. Easy repeatable deliver, gets over front side. 

 

 


Ryan O'Mara RHP / 3B / McQuaid Jesuit, NY / 2019

Physical 6-foot-4 210 pound frame; stays in the zone forever with power potential. Looking forward to seeing how he has progressed at 3B. Will also see time on the mound where his ceiling is through the roof. 

 

 


Daniel Tirabassi 3B / 2B / Rush-Henrietta, NY / 2020

Quick whip like action through the zone with the hands; line drive approach. Hands work out in front, soft through the ball. 2B/3B projection. 

 

 


Outfielders

Danny Stapleton RHP / OF / Penfield, NY / 2020

Lean, wiry frame with some bat whip through the zone. Low slot RHP with some arm side life to the FB at 77-78 MPH back in February. Breaking ball more slurve like; some feel for change up. 

 

 


Brendan Miller 3B / OF / Penfield , NY / 2020

2020 grad with the speed tool. Showed an 80 MPH from the OF. Balanced approach at the plate; stays behind the ball with an aggressive lower half. 87 MPH exit velocity.

 

 

 

2021 Michael Sirota
OF/MIF 
The Gunnery School (CT)
Athletic with above average speed, can hit to both gaps, and is sound defensively. Will workout at the MIF and OF at the NYS Games. 

2021 Carlos Pena
OF/RHP
Salisbury (CT)
Lean and wiry build (6-foot-2) and fundamentally sound. Low mid/80's already on the bump. Excited to see him perform in three weeks. 
Pitcher Only

 

Cole Hedden RHP / 3B / Niskayuna, NY / 2019

Last saw the landy lean RHP back in Sept. where he was impressive. 80-82 with the fastball and expect to see that a tick better come his outing. 

 


Will Hearn LHP / 1B / St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute , NY / 2019

Well built LHP from the Greater Buffalo area. Up to 82 with the fastball back in Feb with signs of a two-plane changeup. Excited to see him compete at the NYS Games. 

 

 


Joseph Dell'Oso LHP / OF / Starpoint, NY / 2020

Wiry, lean and athletic lefty from the greater Buffalo area. This past Feb. he was 78-80 with the Fastball with no restrictions in the arm, high ceiling from the 2020 graduate. Wouldn't be shocked to see him in the low 80's during the NYS Games. 

 


Dylan Crowley LHP / OF / Hamburg , NY / 2019

Lean and long LHP from the greater Buffalo area. Reports on Crowely have been positive with a FB in the mid-80's.
