2020 ProCase Evaluations: Position Players
February 25, 2020
Prep Baseball Report of North Carolina has quickly become the most trusted independent scouting source in North Carolina, and across the country. Each of the past two years, PBR of NC has hosted 20-30 of the top draft prospects in North Carolina as part of their ProCase. On February 9th, PBR of NC continued the tradition with 24 players performing in front of over 20 MLB Teams at Diamond Xtreme in Kernersville, NC.
Pitchers and catchers were up first. Four catchers were able to go through a full defensive workout, throwing through to 2B at the spacious indoor facility. Pitchers threw controlled bullpens, one at a time, for the 20+ teams in attendance. Following the pitchers, infielders and outfielders went through a defensive workout, followed by all of the position players taking live BP in the open atmosphere of Diamond Xtreme.
Located in Kernersville, Diamond Xtreme features a 90'x90' cage that allows for ground balls and throws across the infield. Catchers are able to make full length throws to 2B. During BP, scouts and coaches are able to watch and track the ball off the bat to get a better gauge of each hitter in attendance.
Below we begin to finalize our work from the 2020 ProCase. Full evaluations on the position players from the ProCase include scout notes, stats, and a link to each player's video.
