Baseball America’s 2019 Top 300 MLB Draft Prospects List Features Six 2018 International Week Alums

March 29, 2019

The most recent update to Baseball America’s Top 300 MLB Draft Prospects List features six alums from the prestigious 2018 New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series Powered by Program 15 International Week event, which was held at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona.

Kyren Paris (pictured) made the biggest jump, with the Cal commit climbing 21 spots up to #73.  Known for his slick work in the field, Paris drew a walk, stole two bases, and drove in a run with a sac fly during International Week.

Also featured are No. 10 Daniel Espino, No. 107 Dasan Brown, No. 115 Glenallen Hill, Jr., No. 297 Aaron Roberts and No. 299 Tyler “T.J.” McKenzie.

Espino only allowed one of the ten batters he faced to reach in his Game 2 start — he retired the first eight men he faced — and racked up a tournament-high seven strikeouts along the way.

Brown reached base four times at the event, and contributed a big, two-run triple in Game 1; he was also the No. 10 prospect at the 2017 installment of the 2019 Grad Class Tournament, and No. 2 prospect at this year’s 2020 Grad Class Tournament.

Hill reached base three times and stole a tournament-high five bases; he was also the No. 2 prospect at the 2019 Grad Class Tournament.

Roberts was limited at the International Week event, but did record a strikeout on the mound.

McKenzie racked up two stolen bases and two hits during the three-game series, including an RBI infield single in Game 1; he first caught the eye of P15/NBBFSS staff when he starred at the 2017 installment of the 2018 Grad Class Tournament as a member of US Elite, and also played in the inaugural International Week event.
