Madison Preseason I.D.: Outfielder Analysis


By Wisconsin Staff

On Sunday, March 15, the PBR Wisconsin team hosted its final showcase on its winter calendar, the Madison Preseason I.D., at GRB Academy in Windsor, Wis. In the days following the event, we published rapid analysis on the day’s top performers inside our Quick Hits and Statistical Analysis posts.

Yesterday, we broke down the day’s catchers, and we’re onto the outfielders today.

We ranked the top-five outfielders from each of the graduating classes in attendance, from 2021 to 2023. Ranked highest among the juniors at this event: Tanner Marsh, from Mondovi. Marsh is also one of the top uncommitted prospects in the state, regardless of age or position. He’s a left/left athlete who can do it all, as a 6.60 runner who can also strike the ball with authority. We also got a couple of great looks at on-the-rise 2021s Trace Kirchberg (Columbus) and Max Bredeson (Arrowhead).

The 2022 group ranked below further illustrates just how deep this class is in the state, led by LaFollete’s Cuyler Zukowski. And Dylan Questad (Notre Dame commit) has quickly established himself as one of the state’s top freshmen for his premium arm strength and athleticism, with supporting evidence featured in his scouting report.

We have reports on each of the outfielders who took reps in Madison last March and you can find them all below. Stay tuned tomorrow, when we take a closer look at the day’s infielders.
