Mack Draft: – Cody Glenn, Daniel Norris, Nick Martini, Brett Harrison, Riccio Torrez

Player spotlight: Cody Glenn – An LSU commit, Glenn’s biggest asset right now is his easy arm action and big projection. Already producing a loose 90-91 mph out of his 6-foot-4, 180-pound frame, it’s easy to envision the lefty adding a few ticks to his heater as he continues to mature. Generally under control, the Houston prepster can fall off to third at times, causing him to lose precision with his fastball. He throws all three of his offerings out of a semi-low-three-quarters slot, creating a tough trajectory, particularly with his two-plane 72-75 mph curve. His change is a solid third pitch, coming with some fade. Glenn’s stuff doesn’t jump out yet, but the smart money is on his continuing growth and quick arm leading to a bump in pitch grades across the board. He has a confident demeanor on the mound and is not afraid to attack hitters. http://diamondscapescouting.com/rankings_2011_preseason_top300_pt2.html

 

LHP Daniel Norris Science Hill HS, Johnson City Tenn 6’2 190 – quality lefty with arm strength and arm speed from upper 3/4 slot, also one of top HS QB’s in state, tends to open early on occ causing elbow to get under pitches, fb velocity ranges from 88-94, most are 90-91, cb true 2/6 downward plane action and throws strikes but pitches up more than he needs to which could hurt him in pro ball. Pro instruction will be needed to help him repeat his delivery to be effective in pro ball. Stamina also a concern, but has shown 93-94 in 7th inning before on occ. His team has a matchup vs Nick Delmonico/Pfifer in May. Stay tuned http://xmlbscout.angelfire.com

Nick Martini – Kansas State – With the success of teams like Texas and Oklahoma last year, it may surprise some to hear that Martini in the reigning Big 12 Player of the Year. Martini has been a big straw that stirs the drink in K-State’s unprecedented success in his two years in Manhattan. He hit .336 with four home runs, a team-best 17 doubles, 19 stolen bases, and 50 RBIs to earn Freshman All-American honors in 2009. He also tied a school record by playing in all 62 KSU games that year. Martini took his game to another level last year, batting a Big 12 best .416 with four HR, 17 doubles, 19 stolen bases and 59 RBIs. He had a 1.086 OPS with 41 BB and just 21 K in 231 at-bats while earning Second Team All-American honors Martini has helped Kansas State to the only two NCAA Tournament appearances in program history in his two years in a Wildcat uniform. – http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/02/07/top-college-baseball-outfielders-to-watch-in-20116

 

Brett Harrison , SS , Green Valley, Henderson, NV – Not a fast player but he handles short well with very good actions. He has an average arm that may play better at 2B. He has the quick first step needed to be a good SS. His bat is light, so sticking at SS would help him in the long run. – http://www.mlbbonusbaby.com

•Riccio Torrez had a good hitting night going 4-5 with two homers and driving in five runs as Arizona State cruised to a 8-2 victory over New Mexico. Brady Rodgers started for the Sun Devils giving up only two hits in his five innings of work while striking out five batters – http://www.collegebaseballdaily.com/2011/02/19/foleys-thoughts-from-feb-18th
