11-23-13 – Michael Gettys - Body:  Strong Athletic body with sloped shoulders.  He has a muscular but lean frame.  He has a long limbs and a very strong lower half. Swing:   Gettys’ stance starts slightly open with his hands above his shoulders.  His stride is about a 65 degree stride that helps him keep his hips closed.  He has a shoulder rotation trigger in which he closes up his front shoulder.   This will help him keep his hands back on off speed pitches.  He has a very short swing that is direct to the ball with a high finish giving him lift.  He shows above average to plus bat speed.  He does show very good pitch selection. He could hit for avg and power at the next level. Base running:  Plain and simple, Michael is a burner.  He has been clocked at 6.42 in the 60 yard.  He gets a very quick step out of the box.  He shows very good instincts on the bases and the ability to read pitchers to get a good jump. Defense:  Gettys has good instincts in the field and shows good routes for his age in CF.  He also shows good reactions on his first step.   All that being said, he has a canon for an arm.  He throws 94 off the mound and shows an even better arm from the OF hitting 100mph. Summary:  Michael Gettys is a two way player, but I think his futures is roaming CF and terrifying pitchers at the plate.  Gettys is a toolsy player and still has some refining to do which is going to just make him even better.  For me Gettys is a top 10 pick and maybe even a top 5 if everything comes together. http://bigleaguefutures.net/1/2013/11/23/scouting-report-michael-gettys-of/

11-22-13 - We continue the countdown today with number 65, Cal State Fullerton infielder Matt Chapman. In his sophomore season with the Titans, Chapman started in 53 games at third base. During the 2013 season the infielder batted .285 with 53 hits, 41 runs scored and 37 RBI. His success on the diamond got Chapman named to the Fullerton All-Regional Team as well as the Big West Conference Second Team. The 6’2” third baseman was a permanent fixture in the three spot for the Titans due to his raw power and confidence at the plate. The Victorville, CA native attended El Toro High School where he was a three-year letter winner for the Chargers. The two-time South Coast League honoree hit .422 with 39 hits as a senior and was named MVP as well as earned All-CIF First Team honors. http://ht.ly/2BGRtA
