Gunner Leger, LHP, Louisiana Lafayette Leger is a perfect example of a pretty common type of lefty, the 87-88 mph lefty who can succeed because he locates and has a quality changeup.
Hunter Kiel, RHP, Louisiana State Kiel was a 29th-round pick of the Diamondbacks last year out of Pensacola State (Fla.) JC. He was awful for the Tigers (0-0, 18.47 with 8 walks in 6 innings) but he has the arm strength to get drafted.
Hunter Feduccia, C, LSU-Eunice Feduccia, an LSU signee, hit .394/.514/.606 this year for LSU-Eunice.
Jeffrey Elkins, OF, St. Thomas More Catholic HS, Lafayette, La. Elkins has surprising power potential in his 5-foot-10, 175-pound frame. He shows average bat speed and can loft the ball for pull-side power. He'll need to work on his pure contact ability and non-offensive tools.
2024 Players Who Impressed At The WWBA Championships
Breaking down the 2024 players who made a name for themselves at the WWBA underclass and sophomore championships in Fort Myers.
Kevin Rosario, SS, LSU Shreveport Rosario could get some late-round interest as a senior sign middle infielder who has hit (.391/.441/.599) for LSU Shreveport. The college shortstop may be stretched to stay at the position as a pro, but he has the hands to be a defensive asset at second base.
