Top Prospect Games: DFW - Quick Hits Part 1

Brandon Gowins
Assistant Scouting Director

FORT WORTH, TX - Last week, PBR Texas had our DFW Top Prospect Games at TCU and it was one of the more impressive rosters that we have ever had.  This event was invite only and for 2023-2026 grads. With as much talent as there was, we will break the Quick Hits into a few installments.  Tonight we take a look at the first 10 players that stood out on Tuesday Night.





Gavin Gomez OF / RHP / San Marcos, TX / 2023

One of the standouts from the Top Prospect Games was Gomez.  The true two way player stood out on both sides of the ball.  He started his day posting a 6.97 60 and throwing 93 from the Outfield.  He had a nice LD hit from the left side in the game as well.  After showing out Offensively and Defensively, Gomez hopped on the mound and was equally as impressive.  He  had a Fastball that topped out at 90 and comfortably sat in the upper 80’s. He has a simple delivery that he repeats well with a quick arm.  His Changeup seemed to be his best pitch on this day, but he also threw a curveball that had good shape and generated a few swings and misses as well.   

Easton Tumis RHP / SS / Friendswood, TX / 2023

Tumis got the game portion of the event started off with a bang. He came out filling the strike zone with a low 90’s fastball and a true slider that he throws in the 81-84 range and spun it up to 2771 RPM’s.  He even flashed a  power Changeup in the 85-87 range.  Tumis has an extremely projectable frame that makes you believe there is more in the tank.  He has an athletic delivery with a loose long arm action. Tumis has firmly put himself on the map as must follow as he rolls into his Senior Year.

BARRETT JOHNSON 3B / RHP / Johnson, TX / 2023

Johnson has quickly become a PBR Texas staff favorite.  He plays the game with an intensity and sense of urgency that you don’t always get anymore.  He can do a little bit of everything and it was evident at TCU.  He has soft hands at 3rd and can make all the plays to stay at the hot corner.  Offensively, Johnson does a good job of using the whole field and driving the baseball to all parts. He has a good frame and will continue to develop some power at the plate.  Johnson also pitched and looked equally as sharp on the mound.  He has a simple operation on the mound, with short arm action. His fastball topped out at 89 and flashed a breaking ball with good depth that he threw in the low 70’s. He is a defense’s best friend, as he is one of the quicker workers on the mound.  Johnson is a baseball player and makes any team he is on better. 

Caden Orr RHP / 1B / Carroll, TX / 2023

Orr is one of the big pop up guys of this summer for our Staff.  He first made some noise at our DFW Open Showcase a few weeks ago, which earned him an invite to this event.  The physical righty goes to powerhouse Southlake Carroll, so getting innings has been tough to come by.  But Orr has the arm talent to open some eyes in the next few months.  His fastball got up to 91 with short arm action.  The broad shoulder righty should continue to pick up some velocity as he continues to fill out.  He also threw a breaking ball and changeup.  Both flash potential and as he gets more innings under his belt those should become more consistent for him.  In an area that is tough to find pop up guys, Orr has the potential to be the next one in DFW. 

Ethan Farris SS / OF / Cypress Woods, TX / 2023

One of the more impressive players in the workout session was Farris.  The 6’5 210 Farris looks the part of a power hitting Corner Guy.  He had a Max Exit Velocity of 99 and a max bat speed of 79.4. He ran a 7.02 was 94 from the outfield and 88 on the dirt. During the game, he didn’t get a lot to hit, but this weekend in our PBR Texas Summer Championship, Farris punished baseballs all weekend.  He has a short swing for someone his size and impressive barrel control. Farris is a fun player to watch with all of the tools he displays and I suspect he won’t be available much longer. 


Sawyer Farr SS / 2B / Boswell, TX / 2024

Farr showed up on Tuesday with a lot of people excited to get their 1st look at him, and he didn’t disappoint.  First, the frame of Farr is the 1st thing you notice.  The 6’4 sophomore continues to fill out and get taller, but the athleticism continues to get better with it.  He ran a 6.89 60 and was 89 across the infield.  In the game, he 1st smoked a double over the Left Fielders head for a double and then later had a hit and LD out from the Left Side.  Farr plays the game with a good sense of urgency but it is always under control.  The 29th ranked player in the country continues to impress us with every viewing.  

John Cooper Moore 3B / RHP / Tyler Legacy , TX / 2024

One of the players we were most excited to see is Moore. The first thing you notice from the Tyler Product is his physicality. He looks like a future power hitting corner infielder.  Has broad shoulders and a frame that projects.  He also showed good athleticism, running a 6.97 60. Moore had the loudest contact of the night as he deposited a pitch over the Left Field wall at Lupton Field.  Moore also pitches, and has been into the low 90’s.  He is an intriguing 2 way talent we hope to see more soon. 

Jaxon Miller OF / Heritage, TX / 2024

We were excited to see Miller again after he impressed in January at our DFW Open.  Miller was one of the more toolsy players at TCU on Tuesday.  It started with an event best 6.63 60 for the 6’2 Outfielder.  He was 86 from the OF as well.  At the plate, he had some impressive blast numbers with a 75.2 max bat speed and 20.8 on rotational acceleration.  He has a balanced set up and is pretty quiet pre-pitch.  Not a lot of wasted movement and direct to the ball.  Miller has the frame and athleticism to really make some noise the next two years in the metroplex. 

Cody Cashon C / 3B / Southlake Carroll, TX / 2024

The sophomore backstop had a great night on both sides of the ball. It started with a pop time of 2.01 during the workouts. In the game portion, he also gunned down a would-be base stealer as well. At the plate, Cashon has a natural feel for the barrel.  He smoked a LD single to left and is always looking to do damage when he is up.  I expect Cashon to become a hot name with college coaches this summer, as it is hard to find a good defensive catcher with the offensive potential that Cashon brings. 


Robert X. Mitchell OF / LHP / Naaman Forest, TX / 2025

The JFG alum had a great night on Tuesday. The LHP/OF is a very mature player and has some polish on the mound for a kid his age.  He had a good night at the plate, with multiple barrels and competitive ab’s.  But where MItchell really shined was on the mound.  His fastball was up to 86 and he showed the ability to pitch to all 4 quadrants of the strike zone, especially to the inner half to righties. He also throws a changeup and breaking ball that he can throw for strikes.  He has a clean delivery that he repeats well. Mitchell has plenty of projection left in his frame and as he gets stronger he could see some serious velocity jumps.  The Lefty pitched a lot of big innings for his HS this past spring that should serve him well moving forward.
