Naylor is a potential first round pick, while the others are all expected to go in the top ten rounds.  Pipkin faced ten batters in his outing at the event, and didn't allow a base hit.  Naylor, however, did draw a walk off of him in a battle of two potential top 100 MLB Draft picks at the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series and Program 15 event.

Ronan, who also pitched in the 2018 grad class tournament as a member of US Elite, recorded a strikeout over the course of his outing. Tosti was injured at the time of the event, but still took batting practice. Hill struck out four of the ten batters he faced. Guilbe hit a long, memorable homer…

Gil recorded two hits, while Lleras racked up three strikeouts.
