PBR Spring Training: Day 5-7 Quick Hits II

PBR Canada Staff

PBR Canada Spring Training has now come to an end and it couldn't have been a better or more fun seven days down South for our staff. We got an early look at hundreds of Canadians and it was first major event that will help our staff begin to narrow down players who will eventually compete for the PBR Canada Selects teams at several marquee PBR events in the U.S. including the Future Games, Junior Future Games and the West Coast Games.

Stay tuned over the next week as we continue to break down everything from PBR Spring Training including All-Tournament Teams, top players at the event and statistical stories and breakdowns.

We had full staff on hand from Canada and Florida throughout the week with five active fields filled with 230+ Canadian prospects. We had 8 total games played on Sunday among eight different Canadian squads from the Ontario Giants, NRS Academy, Canes Canada, Whitby Canadians, Etobicoke Rangers, Ontario Prospects and PBR Canada Selects.

Below, we continue to break down everything with video and scouting notes on seven more standouts from the final three days of the event.

Kian Salehi OF / Richmond Hill, ON / 2025

Salehi was one of the biggest surprises on the 16U Prospects squad this weekend. Hitting at the top of the lineup, he set the table with multi-hit games all week long shooting the gaps. HE patrolled a good CF showing good route running/tracking ability. Good overall showing from Salehi these past couple of days.

Alex Landry RHP / OF / Bill Crothers, ON / 2026

Landry continued to show his upside on the mound during his second outing at Spring Training. He sat mostly 77-79 with some cut to it working downhill and attacking the zone. It’s a mature, physical frame with good mound presence. He mixes in a 2-plane CB and a CT with late break. There is a lot to like about Landry, we will have a close eye on him as there is plenty more velocity to come.

Carter McGee LHP / OF / Bowmanville High School, ON / 2025

McGee was one of the biggest surprises on the mound for team PBR Sky, as he was good once again in his second outing of the week. A long and projectable 6-foot-2, 155-pound frame immediately stands out on the mound from the left-side. He continued to show good FB command down in the zone and getting swing-and-misses. He shows some feel for the CB, being able to throw it for strikes. Added strength will be key for McGees development going forward.

Brody Clark OF / RHP / Innisdale Secondary, ON / 2025

Clark’s bat really came alive the last couple of days of Spring Training. He used the big part of the field with a line-drive approach hunting FB’s early in counts. It’s a flat swing path and when timed up, flashes some juice. There has been good off-season development since Barrie Scout Day last fall, and Clark’s game is trending upwards after this week in Florida.

Evin O'Reilly C / 3B / Waterdown District, ON / 2024

Evin had himself an impressive week behind the dish. Advanced ability to  block pitches in the dirt and throw out runners trying to snag the extra base. Showcased high IQ and leadership manning the plate, consistently communicating and positioning players for situational plays. When he is on the offensive side of the game, looks comfortable in the box with a simplistic approach. Slight leg lift in his load that translates to explosive hip engagement and hand speed.

Owen Ellis RHP / 3B / Pineridge Secondary School, ON / 2024

Ellis saved his best outing for the last day of Spring Training down south. Impressive control on the hill, punching out nine batters in just over four innings of work. Keeps batters off balance and uncomfortable in the box, averaging 12.5 pitches an inning and allowing just one hit. Fastball isn’t overpowering but makes up for it with the ability to consistently throw strikes. Curveball has some movement with upside to becoming a go-to swing and miss pitch.



Andrew Thalleen RHP / 1B / Academy at the Lakes, FL / 2026

Thalleen had a standout pitching performance earlier this week. Repeatable delivery that works downhill well. Pitching mechanics are clean that automatically stood out from the right-handed underclassmen. Fastball was living in the low 80’s with command. Movement has arm side run that generates lots of swings and misses. Standing at a 5-foot-11, 175-pound frame, Andrew has plenty of room to mature on the bump and increase velocity as he develops.
