Future Games: Team Tennessee Middle Infielders


Colton Provey
Tennessee Director of Scouting

Team Tennessee's 2019 PBR Future Games experience was a great one, as the 2019 group finished the weekend 0-2-1 with tight games against the top talent from Mid-Atlantic, Missouri, and Kentucky. Although the team didn't get in the win column, Team Tennessee players made some serious impressions on the hundreds of college coaches in attendance at the event (320 to be exact). Over the next few days, Tennessee Scouting Director Colton Provey and PBR Tennessee staff will recap Team Tennessee’s weekend with notes and observations from the prospects in attendance, broken down by position group.

Team Tennessee: Middle Infielders

Riley George 2B / OF / Webb School of Knoxville, TN / 2021

60: 7.15 INF Velo: 79 Exit Velo: 85

 The 5-foot-10, 150-pound utilityman strung together quality at bats all weekend. A lean, quick-twitch athlete went 3 for 6 (2 1B/1 2B/1 BB) in 7 plate appearances w/ 6 quality at bats proving to be a tough out for opposing pitchers.  Short compact swing w/ line drive power and flashes gap to gap power at times.  Top of the lineup hitter that can put pressure on the defense.  Showed good hands and good range while defending multiple positions (2B/OF/3B). Logged personal best 60 and exit velo at event. Needs to develop physically in weight room.  Profile projects to be above average defender at multiple positions and table setter offensively. 

Spencer Williams SS / 2B / Heritage, TN / 2021

60: 7.19 INF Velo: 77 Exit Velo: 86

The 5-foot-10, 160-pound switch-hitting middle infielder went 1 for 5 (1 3B/1 BB) w/ 2 RBIs in 7 plate appearances.  Although the battling line doesn’t jump off the page, Williams was very productive in his opportunities by driving in two runs and scoring another. He continued to show a smooth, quick swing from both sides of the dish w/ slight favor towards the left side. He displayed good gap-to-gap power in both BP & game action.  Defensively, showed solid hands and range w/ short, quick release.  Needs to continue to fill out frame in the weight room.  Profile projects as switch-hitting 2 or 6-hole run-generating hitter w/ solid D at both middle infield positions.  

Cameron Lee SS / 2B / Summit , TN / 2021

60: 6.79 INF Velo: 84 Exit Velo: 90

The 6-foot, 160-pound shortstop showcased a plethora of tools throughout the weekend.  During the showcase, Lee logged the second-best 60 for Team Tennessee and joined the 90-club for exit velo.  In game action, Lee went 0 for 4 (3 BBs) w/ 3 quality at bats in 7 plate appearances. Has some swing inconsistency due to loud stance w/ big leg kick, but ball jumps off barrel when right.  Expect for this to smooth out as he fills out his frame. Defensively, Lee showed good hands and good rhythm w/ long loose arm.  Gets good carry on throws to first.  Profile projects to stay at SS w/ great tools ( + arm, + speed, good pop).  

Cooper Clapp SS / 3B / Hardin County, TN / 2022

60: 7.37 INF Velo: 75 Exit Velo: 85

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound lefty-swinging shortstop was the youngest of his position group.  Clapp went 0 for 4 (2 BB) w/ 3 quality at bats in 7 plate appearances while scoring 2 runs and driving in 1.  Barreled the baseball to all fields w/ gap to gap power in BP.  Showed advanced balanced approach at plate in game action. Defensively, Clapp showed to be a plus defender w/ great hands, smooth movement patterns, and quick transitions. Showed better range than 60 time indicated.  Needs to develop agility to go w/ lean, proportional strength frame. Profile projects to be sure-handed infielder w/ high-ceiling lefty bat.  

Michael Dallas SS / RHP / Briarcrest Christian, TN / 2021

60: 6.92 INF Velo: 88 Exit Velo: 95

The 6-foot, 175-pound shortstop was spark plug of energy throughout the week. During the showcase workout, Dallas shined with the top INF Velo and Exit Velo for Team Tennessee, as well as fourth-best 60 time. During the showcase batting practice, Dallas exhibited a great hit and power tool by driving baseballs to the gaps, and hitting a handful of home runs during his round.  In game action, Dallas went 1 for 6 (1 1B, 2 RBIs, 1 R) w/ 2 quality at bats in 6 plate appearances.  Defensively, showed great hands, smooth transitions, and great arm.  Also had two outings on the mound (FB 84-87, T88). Profile projects as true shortstop w/ ability to change the game offensively and defensively.
