The Ontario Big Board: Top Uncommitted Underclass Middle Infield Prospects


By Chris Kemlo
PBR Ontario Scouting Director

Throughout the month we look to highlight some of the top uncommitted talent. Below we would like to showcase three uncommitted 2016 middle infielders for everyone. 

Top Uncommitted 2016 Middle Infielders


Elliott Curtis, Ontario Terriers, 2016 

Yet to find a home in the field, has seen action at third base, shortstop, and second, as well some time in the outfield. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound left-handed hitter has a strong athletic frame with added projection. Line drive type hitter who can leave the park from time to time. Hits in athletic position, generates good bat speed, involves lower half. Defensively showed good athletic actions, hands and feet work. Arm strength is there, can play all over, projects to be a third baseman with pop from the left side. Ran 7.19 60-yard dash. Top follow for 2016 class.

Adam Hall, Great Lake Canadians, 2017

The 5-foot-10, 160-pound 2017 grad has established himself as one of the best infielders in Canada right now. Hall has a live lower half with good body control. Is alert and agile in the field, good instincts and can move side to side. Arm strength is there, loose, quick release. Plus speed, ran 6.5-sixty yard dash. Short, compact swing at the plate. Small load, short stride, hands are quick through the zone. Able to barrel up balls and produce consistent, hard contact. Will be one of top recruits coming out of Canada for the 2017 class.

Dondrae Bremner, Toronto Mets, 2017

Left-handed hitting short-stop with lean, athletic build with room for projection at 6-foot-1, 160-pounds. Defensively shows athletic actions in the infield, hands are soft with good transfer and release. Lower half works, proper footwork around the bag, agile and flexible. At the plate creates good rhythm and timing, starts hands up, in good position to hit. Wirey strength at the moment. Strong fluid actions all around, with continued improvement should be one of the top middle infielders in Ontario for 2017 class.
