2019 PBR ProCase Evaluations: Dual Pitcher / Outfielders


Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting

Sunday February 10th saw 25 of the top players in the 2019 and 2020 classes in North Carolina converge on Kernersville, NC and the Diamond Xtreme athletics facility.  In front of over 25 professional scouts, each player had his chance to show his skills in the pro-style workout.

By any measure, the 2019 ProCase was a huge success for all involved.  Three dual outfielder / pitchers went through the workout.  Each showed a high ceiling with some upside on the mound and in the box.  While Xander Hamilton and JD Brock are committed, Zack Michael remains uncommitted and began pitching this winter, working to take advantage of his athleticism and arm speed. 

Below are the complete evaluations and video from each player's day at the PBR Procase.  We will continue posting the evaluations in the coming days of the top players in North Carolina who attended the prestigious PBR ProCase.
