On deck preview

Creed Erdos C / RHP / Seneca Valley, PA / 2024

What to Expect: The sturdy 6-foot, 185lb backstop features a physical lower half and advanced blocking feel to both sides. Pop times have been under 2.00 consistently with carrying arm-strength while the bat has made steady gains from a gap-to-gap approach.

What We'd Like to See: There's another step to take offensively, as he continues growing into some additional power. We want to see continued extension at the front of the plate.

Peyton Ford SS / OF / Pine-Richland, PA / 2024

What to Expect: The lean, highly athletic defender can handle multiple positions with 80+ mph arm-strength from each. Run times have been down below 7.00, as an offseason full of lifting has seen exit velocities continue to push into the mid-90's.

What We'd Like to See: Allowing the back shoulder to work through from a higher slot should increase his line-drive percentage during BP, becoming more consistent swing-to-swing.

Ryan Petras SS / 2B / Bethel Park, PA / 2025

What to Expect: A staple this fall under the "Friday Night Lights," Petras has already received college interest on the gridiron for his twitchy, quick burst movements, which he also carries to the baseball diamond. Plus runner who dominates hard contact with plate coverage and an inside attack angle.

What We'd Like to See: Continuing to pack on muscle to fill out the frame. The ability to show in-game is already there, so we would like to see the measurables follow suit and keep rounding out.

Date Attended: 2/6/21, Preseason All-State Southwest

Performance: The hulking right-handed hitter was among the bat-speed leaders and posted a 103mph exit velocity with a 92% hard hit rate. One of the more impressive BP rounds of the entire year.

Recent: Kegerreis is a now a true Freshman on the Delaware University baseball team.
