2011 Draft: - Javier Reynoso, Austin Hedges, Henry Owens, Adam Eggnatz... and Gavin Cecchini

Javier Reynoso:

6-28 from: - link  – I do believe one of the one's you know will sign will be LHP Javier Reynoso in Brooks-Debartolo HS in Tampa. I liked the way he hustled and sprinted out to the batter's box yesterday in the Gold Medal game when it was his AB. I also believe Javier throwing 91MPH after standing out there in 100 degree heat showed me something special, as well. He probably would have hit 93MPH yesterday if he was the starter.

Austin Hedges:

6-27 from: - link   - Day two at TOS - C, Austin Hedges, 5'11 160, R/R, Jserra HS, San Juan Capistrano CA, nice little receiver with plus release and ML arm strength, a tad better than ave, bat will come, there is bat speed but upper body still not fully developed and he receives well. Handled Owens well on the 3 inning stint by the lanky lefty.

Henry Owens:

6-25 from: - http://www.baseballrumormill.com/  - The Tournament of Stars - a showcase event for USA Baseball held every June in North Carolina - is designed to be a forum to compile an 18-and-under team to represent the United States in the IBAF 18U World Championships this July. Keith Law from espn.com recently filed two reports from the event. Here are some highlights from Keith's reports. - •Law was very impressed with LHP Henry Owens noting that "Hitters didn't get good swings off him at all."

6-27 from: - link  - Day two at TOS - LHP, Henry Owens, 6'5 plus 185, lanky and loose with arm strength and live two seamer with sink down in zone, was mostly 88-90, topped 91 a few times, also back door cb that's a slow roller compared to fb velocity, also teased a few str chg on the way. Projectible and had to change uni numbers to fit his size.

Adam Eggnatz:

6-28 from: - link  – On a side note, Adam Eggnatz who also played for Legion in the Gold Medal game, had one heck of a tournament! He had a "bunch of knocks as a switch hitter" and played incredible defense to help get them to the finals. WOW would be my best description of his hard-nosed play in the USA Tournament of Stars in Cary, NC.

Gavin Cecchini:

6-27 from: - link   - Day two at TOS - 3b, Gavin Cecchini, 2012, needless to say, good bloodlines and young, shows pop in his bat, good fundamental approach to the game and lots of physical maturity left in him to follow, in Louisiana.
