Semler's Prospects to Follow: 5.6-5.11

Max Semler
North Texas Scouting Director

Over the course of the season, North Texas Scouting Director, Max Semler, has been out scouting some of the top prospects in the Lone Star State. Semler has served as an area scout for four major league teams spanning the last 30 years and now joins the Prep Baseball Texas Staff. Today, we look at some of Semler's reports on the prospects to follow that he sawe last week.

High Follow: scout this player. Present tools are there, he can enter pro ball and hold his own. 

Low Follow: some present tools with a lot of projection or with college players limited upside. This does not mean this player is not a prospect, not a priority look to start the year. 

Pocket Follow: no carrying tool presently to go out and play professionally or at a Major D1 program. But, does things on the baseball field that attract your attention. This type of player needs strength, needs to mature physically or with a pitcher…velocity needs to take a jump.

High Follow 

Strengths: Athletic infielder with quick twitch. Physically has good build to add strength. Plus quickness shows on the field defensively. Plus runner. Solid actions, range present both sides. Agility and body control present. Solid set up with good load. Bat quickness present. Line drive, pull hit approach. 

Weakness: Pull hitter now, needs to develop more of all field approach. Don’t see power as his game in future. 

Summation: Athletic with build to add strength. Quick twitch present. Shows range on defense with actions. Bat speed present with line drive contact.  Plus runner with quickness and speed to steal bases. Reminds me of Tre Richardson in HS. Interesting player for future, will be good see him during the summer getting more AB’s.
