New England Insider: Top 2017 Uncommitted Outfielders

With the Summer season coming to an end and the 2016-2017 high school sports season as well as fall ball getting underway, we would like to take a look at some of the top uncommitted prospects at each position.

Today we are look at the top uncommitted senior outfielders in the New England Region. We will look to create a few top uncommitted lists each week, as you can see by our 2017 Player Rankings there are numerous talented prospects available.

Frank DiOrio
Rank: 39th in New England's Class of 2017
Scouting Report: Versatile athlete who can play just about anywhere on the field. Runs it down in the outfield, shows good awareness off the bat. Threw 84 from the outfield with accuracy. At first, he has an excellent glove and handles the position with ease. Ran a 4.63 on his dig to first base, that will need to go back down to where it was last year. The bat has plus life from both side, tee exit velocity of 94 mph from the right side and 92 mph from the left side. The set ups are very similar from both sides. Wide base, slight bat wrap and quick hands. The path is flatter from the right side as opposed the left side. Shows power from the right side as well. On the mound, shows plus stuff. The fastball is 82-84 mph with sink and action to it. The spin pitch is plus, with depth, sitting at 74 mph. Showed an average changeup at 78 mph, small tweak can fix that up. Good looking prospect.
College Outlook: Better right-handed hitter than left-handed, so he will be mainstay vs left-handed pitching college. Certainly can play the outfield and first base at the next level. I do like, a great deal, on the mound, at worst he is s left-handed specialist as the breaking ball is dirty. With innings, he could develop into a legit two-way player.
Receiving Interest: Army, Penn State, Franklin Pierce

Connor Mulligan
Rank: Ranked 53rd in New England's Class of 2017
Scouting Report: Excellent tools across the board as he showed early in the workout. Had to leave the workout early due to major discomfort in his left hand. Showed life in his body, swing and his arm as he worked out. Ran a 4.21 from the right-side on a dig. Threw 85 from the outfield with carry and accuracy. The batting practice rounds were impressive, as he hits out of a spread out setup with a no-stride approach. The hands are direct to the ball and shows life to the pull side of the field. The head and bottom half have very little movement allowing him to stay in position to handle all pitches. Good looking tool set, keep an eye on this 2017.
College Outlook: Good looking right-handed hitting outfielder who showed plus foot speed, above average arm strength and the ability to swing the bat. Tools are there to be a good college player.
Receiving Interest: Schools in the New England and Northeast regions
