Numerous Future Stars Series Players Listed In Baseball America’s 2021 MLB Draft Rankings

October 10, 2019

Updated just after the conclusion of the most recent International Week event that saw Baseball America on hand at both McCoy Stadium and Fenway Park, the publication has included numerous Program 15 alumni in their 2021 MLB Draft rankings for high school players.

Players from both International Week and the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series national tournaments in Cypress, Texas are prominently featured.

Braylon Bishop (7), Anthony Solometo (35), Ian Moller (38), Connor Simon (50), Josh Pearson (85), Gavin Ochoa (91) and Brandon Clarke (95) are all listed among the top 100 high school prospects in the nation.

Bishop made his NBBFSS debut at the 2019 national tournaments as a member of Sticks Baseball, and followed that up at 2019 International Week by boosting his stock thanks to reaching base seven times during the event, including a two-run single and RBI double.

Solometo dazzled scouts with his unique delivery as a member of Zoom Baseball during the 2019 national tournaments, while Simon stood out as a two-way star with the Sheets Shock program back at the 2018 nationals and Ochoa performed well on the mound as a member of NorCal at the most recent national event.

Like Bishop, Clarke debuted at the 2019 nationals, but as a member of the Dirtbags, and earned an invite to International Week through his performance there.

Moller and Pearson both played at International Week; Moller stood out despite limited playing time, while Pearson got at least one hit on each day of the event.
