6-foot-3, 165-pounds with long levers and a frame that oozes projection. Fastball plays with arm side run and sits 75-76 mph, T77 mph. Spun a breaking ball at 68-69 mph that plays with 11/5 shape and a changeup at 67-68 with fading action.

Brock Gauthier, UTL, Bay Port 2026

Athletic frame with a strong lower half. Present physicality in the right handed batter’s box. Uses strong hands to manufacture bat speed with ease. Consistently found the barrel at MATC, knocking a pair of hits and a loud out.

Layten Gerdes, INF, Minonk (IL), 2026

Tall and skinny frame with athletic movements. From the right side, he has a tall setup in the box with active hands pre-pitch and uses a leg lift stride for timing. Consistently found barrels in his at-bats and hits the ball to all fields. Also shows discipline at the plate and the ability to not chase pitches out of the zone. Defensively, he is rangy for a 3rd baseman and has clean actions when fielding the ball paired with a strong arm to make throws across the diamond. Gerdes was 1-3 with an RBI double and a walk against GRB Rays MKE Green.


Hayden Adamowicz, Hoffman Estates (IL), 2027

Built at a large 6-foot-1, 190-pound frame, Adamowicz emerged as a name to follow over the next few years. Playing up a year, Adamowicz sat 76-80 mph (T81 mph) with his fastball that he was effectively wild with. He also flashed feel for a 1/7 breaking ball. Adamowicz seems to be a step ahead of the rest of the people in his class, and despite being raw he is a name to know in Illinois’ 2027 class.
