Illinois and Wisconsin Assistant Director

On Sunday, Feb. 6, Prep Baseball Report will host the 20th edition of its prestigious, flagship event: the Super 60 Pro Showcase. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than 300 players have been selected in the MLB Draft, including 25 first-round picks and 26 second-rounders.

We've started our march toward the Super 60 by highlighting the prospects set to join us, shining a light on their impressive player profiles that they've groomed through their high school careers, leading them to this point, vying for the attention of the pro scouting community.

Scouting Report


6-foot-2, 210-pounds; broad-shouldered ultra-physical frame. The right-handed hitter turned in perhaps the most eye-opening round of BP on the day; starting in an open setup, slight knee-knock at times into a coiled upper-half, creating hand-separation at foot-strike while keeping a consistent rhythm. Utilizes controlled aggression through his swing with a max bat speed of 78.6 according to BLAST, uphill path through the zone with intent to lift baseball, produced backspin while routinely making loud contact (71.4 hard-hit percentage according to BLAST; 102 mph max exit velocity and 92.6 mph average exit velocity). Profiles as a true middle-of-the-order power bat with feel to hit. On the other side of the ball, Izquierdo shows natural actions with impressive athleticism, especially given his physical frame; demonstrating the ability to handle errant throws with ease and picking balls in the dirt consistently throughout the event. The Navy commit also showed athletic feet around the base with impressive flexibility on low throws, showing body control throughout all infield-actions. By far one of the day’s biggest winners and is a definite name to know for this coming spring.


Navy commit, currently ranked No. 41 in Illinois. Strong, physical 6-foot-2 200-pound frame. Superior strength throughout frame. Offensively is a catalyst for the Porters hitting in their three-hole. Right-handed hitter, open athletic stance. Features a big leg-kick that helps to keep him in rhythm and on time. Confident and mature presence in the box. Features advanced bat strength combined with a feel to hit. Was on the barrel with authority in two of his four at-bats. Singled hard to right-field and then followed up with a laser into the left-center field gap for extra bases. Also a catcher, Izquierdo spent this game at first base. Frame fits the first base mold at the next level; big target with soft hands. Routinely showed the ability to pick the baseball and handle tough hops. Fluid feet for his size, feel around the bag. One of the top right-handed power bats in the Illinois’ 2022 class. 


Verbally committed to Navy.
