Throughout the week during USA Baseball's National High School Invitational, Baseball America took a look at the players who stood out from a tools and skills perspective. However, with the tournament completed, it's time to point out the players whose performance stood out.

Tools are obviously important for the draft and for projecting players, but when you're trying to win games, performance tops all. Here is our 2019 NHSI stats leaderboard for both hitters and pitchers:
