SS Sam Silas (2023) is a prospect that we’ve grown very familiar with over the past couple years as he’s attended numerous PBR events, with the most previous one being the Preseason All-State event this January. Listed at an athletic 6-0, 165 pounds, Silas handled the bat well and played a clean shortstop for the Bulldogs on Monday. At the dish, the sophomore shortstop is a hitter that is being relied on in a large capacity in 2021. Hitting in the leadoff spot, Silas recorded a single, drove home three runs, walked and was hit-by-pitch in this contest. Keeps his weight back and uses a small, quick leg kick and gradually shifts his weight forward with a level bat plane to hit for line drives consistently. Showed no issue going the other way when he handled an elevated fastball over the plate and drove it right field to drive in two of his three runs on the day. Keeps the hands close and stays short throughout contact. Quick hands and efficient footwork up the middle, and should stick at shortstop in the future.

6-foot, 160-pound athletic frame. Recorded a time of 7.25 in the 60-yard dash. Advanced during batting practice, Silas had an exit velocity of 89 mph. Started in an athletic stance with a slow load, then used a leg kick. Bat speed was above average, had upward swing plane and good extension on his finish. Found multiple barrels with tons of loud contact. Gap to gap approach. Above average while in the infield, recorded position velocities up to 79 mph; shows sure hands, consistent feet, and a quick exchange. Glovework was used out front. Had an-over-the-top slot and a consistent arm action. One of many uncommitted talented middle infielders in the 2023 class across the state.

Young ‘23 grad that starts with the hands set back in the stance from a slightly open stance. The front side is simple and he shows some present strength in the hands. He was very impressive with the finish of the swing staying on pitches with some middle of the field juice. The field worked well at SS and he showed really nice lateral range with the glove. No questions about the glove action and the arm also shows some strength for such a young player. The skills should continue to develop as he matures which makes him an interesting ‘23 to follow.
