MVP of the Fall:

Blayne RobinsonBlayne Robinson, 1B/LHP, Defiance, 2019
Fall Report:
A 6-foot-5, 185-pound very projectable frame. Unusually athletic for having that frame at his age. Creates a ton of energy with his lower half through an efficient loading sequence and aggressive stride. Takes a slightly uphill path to the ball with impressive bat speed. Swings with the intent to do damage. Has gap to gap pop at this stage with power to come as he fills out. Defensively he is a plus defender at first base. Glove works and he has feel for the position. His athleticism and well above average arm would indicate he would be able to play the outfield as well.

 

Position Player of the Fall:

Tyler ChumitaTyler Chumita, SS/2B, Hilliard Darby, 2018
Fall Report:
An athletically built middle infielder that is a solid all-around player. The most impressive thing about Chumita is his knowledge of the game. In the infield he consistently reads swings and repositions himself based on the situation. At the plate he has advanced feel for the strike zone and rarely chases. On the base paths he is always looking to take an extra base and was automatic on ball in the dirt reads. His ability to work counts and finds the barrel consistently make him an ideal top of the lineup guy. Tools are there as well. Glove works and footwork is textbook. Arm is fringy for the left side at this stage but makes up for it with quick transfer. At the plate he has above average bat speed with a compact, level swing.

 

Pitcher of the Fall:

Jake ManciniJake Mancini, LHP, Circleville, 2018
Fall Report:
A 5-foot-9, 185-pound strong build. On the mound the southpaw has smooth tempo to his low effort delivery. Arm action is loose and clean. Mechanically efficient. Advanced pitchability showing the ability and confidence to use any pitch in any count. Uses his secondary stuff to set up his fastball which will be anywhere from 74-76 mph. His 1/7 shaped breaking ball has big, early break. His changeup has run and sink to it while maintaining fastball arm speed. Consistently produced weak contact, often early in the count.
