OTHERS TO WATCH:OF Jase Bowen (Central Catholic HS) made a name for himself at the Super 60 and has intrigued scouts with his athleticism. Bowen runs a 6.47-second 60-yard dash, has shown 95 mph arm strength from the outfield and is up to 92 off the tee. The athleticism shows in all facets of his game and he’s a two-sport star committed to Michigan State for football and baseball. Another prospect who used the Super 60 to raise his pro stock is Christian Lothes (Lakewood Hebron HS, OH). The southpaw has been up to 91 mph with his fastball and shows a slider with potential. A bat to look out for is OF Morgan Colopy (Centerville HS, OH). The power is real and he has put it on display throughout the spring. RHP Nate Stahl (Walsh Jesuit HS, OH) has made a late push, running his fastball up to 94. He has size, pitchability and solid stuff. RHP Owen Recker (Kalida HS, OH) has also offered intrigue with his size and velocity, standing 6-foot-5 and running it up to 93 mph.
