CYPRESS, TX- Throughout the fall, PBR's staff will be on the road covering baseball across Texas. Games, workouts, practices, camps and more.  The "boots on the ground" philosophy of PBR is well represented with the coverage throughout the Fall of 2017. Today we bring you to 2018 graduates that had the best overall performances from Hunter Pence Baseball's Scout Day. 



Recent Texas A&M Corpus Christi commit. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound, left-handed hitter has a strong, high-waisted, athletic frame. He ran a 7.13-second 60-yard dash on a slow track, threw 89 mph from the outfield, registered an exit velocity of 97 mph, and bumped 88 on the mound. Jones has loose hands and easy rhythm at the plate, and consistently barreled up the ball during batting practice.  




RHP / 1B / CINCO RANCH, TX / 2018

Kibbe opened some eyes when the 6-foot-3, 175-pound right-hander pumped 87-88 mph, touching 90 one time. Kibbe works from a high-¾ slot with some funk in his delivery and hides the ball well. Breaking ball was 74 mph, changeup was 77 mph. Also worth noting, Kibbe is a left-handed hitter and showed some strength during BP when he left the yard to right field.





OF / 1B / KLEIN, TX / 2018

Gonzalez is a projectable left-handed hitter with a strong, sturdy frame at 6-foot, 215-pounds. The Texas Tech recruit starts from a tall, open stance. Early rhythm with a reverse leg lift as he triggers his hands back, short stride, lands balanced. Quick hips with fast hands, generates good leverage and lift with a high finish and pull side power and an exit velocity of 92 mph.
