FL JUCO Top 25 Prospects


Doug Freeman
Florida Scouting Director

Florida Junior College is well known for producing impact talent, whether in the Division I, II or MLB ranks. The 2017 MLB Draft was a banner year for NJCAA Region 8, which consists of 23 Florida Junior Colleges. Led by the 2017 National Champion Chipola College, who had 10 players taken in 2017, the second-most by any college at any level in the country. In all, Region 8 has 39 players drafted over the three day, 40 round draft.

Today we take a look at our first rendition of our Florida JUCO Top 25 Prospect list. As with any top prospect list, it will be constantly evolving through the spring, but junior college also has another exception. The winter break is prime time for mid-year transfers, some who could make an impact to the list and are not currently listed. For now, we take a look at evaluations and videos on the Top 25 Prospects in Region 8.

 

 

Tyler Keysor RHP / Easter Florida State College, FL / 2018

Miami commit. At 6-foot-6, 210 pounds, he has a lean, strong frame that could fill out a bit more. He works with low effort, from a simple delivery and a 3/4 to low 3/4 slot. He shows a feel to pitch with the fastball working 91-93 mph with much more in the tank. He also showed a feel for a downer slider at 75-78 mph and a changeup at 80-82 mph. The present stuff along with the upside and feel to pitch has him as the top prospect in the Florida Junior College ranks.
