Super 60 Spotlight: Payton Gubler

EVENT INFORMATION

This is the 20th Annual Super 60 Pro Showcase.

This prestigious, invitation-only event features only the top draft prospects in the Prep Baseball Report’s expansive coverage area. Over the last 19 years, the Super 60 has become the most heavily scouted preseason event for potential draft picks. The primary purpose of the Super 60 is to give professional area scouts, cross-checkers and scouting directors a head start to the high school season. The event is for draft-eligible Class of 2022 prospects. 

The Super 60 Pro Showcase has hosted some of baseball's top prep talent while serving as the first stop along the year's MLB Draft circuit. Last year’s draft was a banner year for former Super 60 participants, as C Henry Davis (Fox Lane, NY) was selected No. 1 overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Davis attended the 2018 Super 60 showcase, alongside RHP Ryan Cusick (Avon Old Farms, CT), who also heard his name called in the first round of the 2021 MLB Draft. Additionally, four Super 60 alumni were drafted within the first three rounds of this year's draft: SS Noah Miller (Ozaukee, WI), RHP Spencer Schwellenbach (Saginaw Heritage, MI), C Carter Jensen (Park Hill, MO), and 3B Alex Binelas (Oak Creek, WI).

In total, the Super 60 hosted 29 players who were ultimately selected in the 2021 MLB Draft. The '21 draftees soon joined the likes of Gavin Lux (Kenosha Indian Trail, WI), Evan White (Gahanna Lincoln, OH), Jarred Kelenic (Waukesha West, WI), and Alek Thomas (Mount Carmel, IL) as former, recent Super 60 participants who have since begun to thrive in the pro ball setting.

The Super 60 will be held on Sunday, February 6.

Scouting Report

11/21/21

Gubler has squarely been in the top 3-5 players in the class for the past year and is now in the #2 spot, thanks to abv avg athleticism, a smooth glove and abv avg arm strength. Gubler, a legit two way player, has starred as an up the middle player since his freshman year, when he committed to BYU playing for one of the top travel teams in the country, Team Utah ‘22. A 6.8/60 runner with near 90 mph throws across the INF, and also shows EV’s of up to 102 mph. Also is a star on the mound, as the 1st Team All-State arm and Area Code alum can generate FB’s from 90-95 and sits 92-94 in short bursts, with one of the better CB’s 82-84 in the country. The pitch has tight downward biting depth and gets ugly swings when on, which is most of the time. Look for Gubler to do as he did as a junior in Region 10 and miss bats at a high rate and have his way with HS competition.

12/01/20

A two way multi faceted “baseball player” that can beat you 3 ways as an amateur, with his glove, his arm and the bat. The Desert Hills SS also takes his turn in the rotation and has created a name for himself over the past year, playing for the powerful Team Utah ‘22, and the Mets Scout Team ’22 in AZ. Gubler showed at the Fall Prospect ID, why he will be a very strong player at the next level. A recent BYU commit, Payton had the 2nd best exit velo in his class at 95.4, and produced another at 95.1 and 94.3. A strong BP session, with a classic RHH stance and starts with the bat at a 45, and rocks back to load and fires his hands in a short compact manner, with length out front and whips the bat into a strong and high one hand finish. At SS, he showed dance to his educated feet, and showed actions and is fluid in his approach to the baseball. As he gathers and separates the hands, he gets his arm up quick and gets off a strong and accurate throw across the diamond. An all around player that also produced 90 MPH FB’s in his pen session, Gubler profiles in the MIF, but could be a strong two way type at BYU and provide roster flexibility for a nationally ranked program. Doesn't show big tools, but is schooled in the fundamentals and knows how to play the game. A sum of all his parts type, which is what a “baseball player” is. Plays the game the right way!
