    One of the best all-around players in the Tampa area, Barger has solid tools across the board but didn't have a single plus tool until his arm strength improved this spring. It's a 60-grade arm currently, but Barger gets the most out of the rest of his toolset as a sure-fielding shortstop with plus bat speed and feel to hit that gives him average raw power. Barger makes all the routine plays at shortstop and should do enough to stick at the position until someone with more tools comes along and pushes him to second base. He's a smart player who understands the game and makes adjustments at a level that encourages scouts about his on-field makeup. There's not a ton of upside with Barger because of his lack of any plus tool, but scouts have compared him to the Logan Warmoths of the world--someone who could end up at college and drastically improve his prospect status. A Florida commit, Barger has no real holes in his game and a hit tool that drives mid-90s velocity with regularity.
