Jason Pridie, rhp

School: Prescott HS. Class: Sr.
Hometown: Prescott, Ariz.
B-T: L-R Ht.: 6-1 Wt.: 180 Birthdate: 10/9/83
College Commitment: Vanderbilt.
Scouting Report: The athletic Pridie is one of the few high school position players in this year's draft with five-tool ability. He is a good lefthanded hitter with power potential, though he has a hitch in his swing that will need to be corrected. He runs a legitimate 6.7 seconds in the 60 and his speed plays well on the bases. He also pitches up to 92 mph, evidence of his arm strength. His outfield skills are solid. None of his tools may be as impressive as his instincts for the game or his versatility. He is ahead of the game for his age and can play almost anywhere on the field. He almost singlehandedly led Prescott High to the Arizona 4-A title this year, pitching the last three innings and winning the game in extra innings with a three-run homer. One of the few players to elude Arizona State, Pridie committed to Vanderbilt. Pro ball is an attractive option as his brother Jon is a rising prospect in the Twins system and has extolled the virtues of signing out of high school.
