Midwest Prospect League Scout Notes: 2020 Prospects

By Sean Duncan

Already we’ve rolled out reports on 2018 and 2019 prospects competing in the Midwest Prospect League (MPL) at Grand Park in Westfield, IN. The MPL featured top-level travel programs’ 15U, 16U and 17U teams all at Grand Park’s state-of-the-art complex and some neighboring fields. From a scouting and competition perspective, it was one of the best events I’ve been to in a while, certainly one that will require more than one guy next year. 

Nevertheless, this scouting notebook focuses solely on a handful of 2020 prospects that I saw over the course of two days during the four-day tournament …


SS / EAST TROY, WI / 2020

Louisville recruit. 6-foot-5, 185-pound right-handed hitting infielder with lanky athletic build, wide shoulders and long legs; looks to be still growing into his frame. Overall highly advanced hitter with big future power potential. Barreled up everything thrown his way in two-plus games scouting the Wisconsin Hitters, including smashing a down-and-in upper-80s fastball into the left-field trees for a home run. Also tripled to right field, lined a hanging curveball up the middle, got fooled on a slider and wrist-flicked it up the middle, and rapped two other singles to left field. For his size and swing length, he shows highly advanced barrel awareness.
