Hit: Right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced setup. All the physical tools you could ask for. 6-foot-4 with bat speed (79.6 mph) and obvious strength. Turned on a few balls with authority in BP, leaving the yard in BP. As impressive as the current skill set is he is only going to get better as he fills out that frame. Huge get for Cedarville.
Power: Legit pull side power.
Offensive Projection: Middle of lineup.
Max BP Exit Velocity: 99 mph
Max BP Distance: 384 ft
Field: Ideal frame for the corners. Moves light on his feet with overall above average athleticism for position profile.
Throw: Serviceable strength.
Defensive Projection: 3B/1B.

An absolute man child physically with surprising athleticism at 6-foot-4, 210-pounds. The righty swinger has a powerful stroke through the zone with a ton of jump off the barrel when he connects. Still has some unlocked pop in there as swing movements become more efficient. Rice has all the physical ability to hit for real power someday. Glove works at third base. Coming off arm injury so expect easy velo gains in the near future.

Very projectable 6-foot-3, frame with room to add. Fluid, efficient delivery that requires some effort. Fastball will stay mostly true through the zone at 80-83 mph. Can easily see him adding mphs down the road. Go to secondary offering looks to be the 11/5 shaped breaking ball. Showed solid feel for the offerings that has both depth and sharpness to it. Also flashed a changeup that looks to be an above average offering as well. The pitch shows some dive to it at 75-77 mph.  A right-handed bat that starts in a balanced stance. Hands stay quiet during leg kick timing trigger. Balanced swinger with a nice, level path through the zone. Hands offer speed through and strength through. Swing is a bit unique but the tools are obvious. Ball comes off well. Landed on a few ball in BP. A third baseman with the frame for the spot. Fluid, easy actions with above average ball skills for class. Arm plays at the position. Solid defender. Legit two-way prospect.

Really physical prospect for his class at 6-foot-3, 190-pounds. A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced setup. Hands stay quiet during leg kick timing trigger. Physical kid with a ton of juice for class. Ball looks different off his bat. Advanced strength to hands with above average bat speed as well. Swing has loft allowing him to lift the baseball without sacrificing natural tools. Shows all the signs of a future power bat down the road. In the infield he looks comfortable and plays with obvious confidence. Third baseman frame with well above average ball skills, With his frame and arm he likely ends up at third base in college.Also impressed on the bump, running it up to 83 mph with an above average breaking ball. Promising young talent. D1 Follow.

Didn’t throw at the event because of weather but it’s worth noting him under two-way guys because the freshman had an outstanding year for Blanchester this season. As a position guy he stands out immediately for frame, not looking like an ordinary freshman. At the plate he has some room to clean up movements but when he connects the ball looks different off the bat. Generates easy gap pop with emerging power to pull side. Mashed a triple in game. Obvious strength, ball jumps off his bat, interesting, one of the louder BPs of the day.

The freshman more resembles a junior at 6-foot-3, 186-pounds. On the mound he shows nice rhythm to a drop and drive type delivery. Has some counter rotation during the leg lift. Shows good direction in the stride landing closed at foot contact. Uses a long arm action though a ¾ slot. Fastball is easy of out the hand sitting 76-79 on a downward plane. Only secondary offering was a 11/5 breaking ball with developing depth. Rice shows good feel for that pitch at 62-63 MPH. Rice should be a candidate for a velocity jump this spring/summer. Two-way prospect. Physicality shows at the plate, showing advanced pop for class. A high upside bat who has potential to be dynamic as bat speed catches up to strength. Defensively he showed middle infield hands with a third baseman’s frame. Showed above average abilities at both with high ceiling likely at third base.

On the mound, the 6-foot, 165-pound righty has an uptempo pace to his low effort delivery that he is able to repeat. Arm action is long and loose with above average arm speed. Sat 74-76 mph with his fastball that showed run at times. Much more velocity to come. Is able to maintain fastball arm speed on his 65-68 mph changeup. Still developing feel for the pitch.  Breaking ball showed solid depth on an 11/5 plane. Has solid feel for the pitch that showed signs of sharpness at  62-66 mph. A righty swinger that uses a leg kick to initiate loading sequence. Hands stay simple during his stride. Swing is compact on a level path. Bat has some quickness to it. Contact type guy. Would like to see him get more out of his upper half load. Impressive pop to pull side. Defensively, he shows advanced actions for his age. Plays from his toes and comes through the baseball, keeping it at his glove side. Uses a crow hop with long arm action. Above average arm strength for his age. Likely projects as a corner guy, but plenty of time for additional development.

3/19/16

5-foot-11, 120-pound prospect. Long arm action through high ¾ arm slot. Tendency to wind up in his exchange. Top velocity of 68 mph with some carry to his throws. Needs to play through the baseball as he has tendency to be flat footed and quicken his exchange. In the outfield he uses athletic footwork to get to the ball in a timely fashion. Is able to maintain momentum into his throws and showed loose arm action while reaching a top velocity of 67 mph to home plate. Ran a 7.85 60-yard dash. Uses the same motion each time pounding the strike zone from a high ¾ arm slot and quick arm speed. 67-69 mph heavy fastball has a good late cut action, 11/5 54-56 mph curve shows good early break, and a deceptive change up that sat 62-65 mph. Tall stance, hits the ball hard consistently. Takes the ball the other way.  Registered a top exit velocity of 65 mph.
