18 Jan Baseball America’s 2023 Top 100 Prospects
Four BHSC clients were recently named to Baseball America’s Top 100 Prospects. Those players include:
No. 3 | Jackson Chourio | OF | Milwaukee Brewers
According to Baseball America: “The biggest breakout prospect of 2022, Chourio boasts some of the loudest tools in the minors with prodigious power, speed and athleticism to go with advanced hitting ability and instincts. He’s on the fast track after reaching Double-A as an 18-year-old and has a chance to be the face of the Brewers franchise.
Tools: Hit: 60 | Power: 70 | Run: 70 | Field: 55 | Arm: 50″
No. 40 | Mick Abel | RHP | Philadelphia Phillies
According to Baseball America: “Abel is a tall, athletic righthander with a deep arsenal of average to plus pitches. Abel sits mid 90s on his fastball, touching 99 mph at peak with ride and late, explosive life. His plus slider is his best secondary, while his above-average changeup and average curveball round out an effective mix of offerings.
Tools:Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 50 | Slider: 60 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 50″
No. 52 | Carson Williams | SS | Tampa Bay Rays
According to Baseball America: “Williams showed tremendous gifts on both sides of the ball in his first test in the full-season minors. He’s an outstanding shortstop with plenty of power but a bit more swing-and-miss than you’d like to see. Williams also has above-average speed and instincts on the bases. He spent half of his first full season at 18 years old and helped lead his team to a league championship.
Tools: Hit: 40 | Power: 60 | Run: 55 | Field: 60 | Arm: 70″
No. 99 | Cole Young | SS | Seattle Mariners
According to Baseball America: “Young is a silky-smooth hitter with a shot to hit .300 while providing some extra-base pop as well. He faces more questions about his range defensively, but he’s a reliable defender who makes the play on most everything he gets to at shortstop.
Tools: Hit: 60 | Power: 45 | Run: 55 | Field: 50 | Arm: 55″
