Baseball America took some video of several top 2011 high school prospects at some recent summer showcases, so here is your first look at a few of them.
The first is lefthander Daniel Norris from Science Hill High in Johnson City, Tenn. At the Perfect Game National Showcase, Norris was 92-94 mph with his fastball and showed a nasty, 73-75 mph curveball.
Next is Joe Ross, a righthander from Bishop O'Dowd High in Oakland, Calif. Joe is the younger brother of Tyson Ross, a rookie righthander for the Athletics. Joe throws his fastball in the 91-93 mph range and shows a 78-80 mph curveball and an 82 mph changeup.
Finally, there's Bubba Starling, an outfielder and righthander from Gardner Edgerton High in Gardner, Kan. Starling is also a highly-touted quarterback and it was clear from watching him at USA Baseball's Tournament of Stars that he could be successful in either sports. Starling has a very athletic, 6-foot-4, 180-pound frame and has the potential to be a five-tool player.
