Andrew Wright (LHP/OF) - IE Boxers
College Commitment: Pepperdine
Andrew Wright is a 2013 LHP/OF with a 6-4 195 lb. frame from San Diego, CA who attends Cathedral Catholic. Wright has a large frame with an athletic build and room to fill. He pitches from a 3/4 arm slot with a long arm action and arm speed. He pitches downhill well with some life on his fastball. He gets good armside run on his fastball and sinks it occasionally. Wright throws a change up with good fade to it. He throws a curve ball with short break to it at 74 MPH. Wright pitched well getting all ground balls or strikeouts in his outing. Defensively, Wright has solid actions in the outfield with an easy arm action. He uses a Moises Alou style set up at the plate with developing bat speed.
Andrew Dunlap (RHP) - Bulldogs
College Commitment: Rice Univeristy
Andrew Dunlap is a 2013 RHP/C with a 5-11 215 lb. frame from Houston, TX. Extra strong broad shouldered build, fairly mature physically. Slow paced delivery, simple mechanics, full fast arm action, effort on release causes inconsistency, throws mostly from the stretch and has better stuff and command from the stretch, high 3/4's arm slot. Consistent plus fastball velocity, lots of 93 and 94's, topped at 96 mph, fastball heavy down in the zone, will lose command at times and miss high arm side. Hard curveball spin with sharp bite, lacks command of curveball at present but is a promising pitch, rare change up. Very limited pitching experience, formerly a highly ranked catching prospect with big right handed power. Not playing high school baseball this spring after exhausting his eligibility. Arm strength is extremely impressive, can't help thinking of 5-11/205 Craig Kimbrel, who was a primary third baseman in high school.
Philip Prendergast (OF) - Okeiki Warriors
