2023 Top 10 Baseball Prospects in Arizona

The Arizona Top 10 Prospects for the class of 2023 is an interesting group of talented athletes who have shown us eye popping athleticism and versatility. We are extremely excited to watch this group continue to develop as they approach their draft year.

  1. Grant Smith (RHP/1B/OF) Pinnacle

Smith is exceptionally strong and athletic for his age. Long and loose arm action on the mound, H 3/4’s arm slot, easy well paced delivery, low effort out front with a very loose wrist on release. Steady upper 80’s fastball, gets nice sinking and running action to his fastball. Strike thrower with both FB and SL. Right handed hitter with bat speed and the ball comes off the barrel hard. Very high ceiling prospect. Uncommitted

  1. Zach Wadas (1B/OF) Hamilton

Wadas has a long and lanky frame with strength and a lot of room to fill out. Primary first baseman who has good accuracy around the bag and moves athletically. Secondary outfielder who charges the ball well and above average arm. Left-handed with a short swing path with impressive bat speed. Gets extended and drives the ball well with big power to all fields. Committed to TCU

  1. Duce Robinson (OF/RHP) Pinnacle

Robinson is a two sport athlete that’s tall, lean, muscular, fast, and athletic. He displays high-level athletic ability in the outfield along with a plus throwing arm. He has a good swing with tons of pop coming out of the big frame. The approach at the plate is advanced, showing he isn’t afraid to shoot the ball to the opposite field. Uncommitted

  1. Derek Shaefer (RHP/UTL) Cactus Shadows

Schaefer has an athletic frame with square shoulders and long limbs, high waist with room to fill throughout. Fastball tops out at 90 mph with downward life resulting in weak ground ball contact. At the plate, he has a simple swing with power potential. Committed to Washington.

  1. Traig Oughton (RHP) Liberty

Oughton has an ultra-projectable and carries a confident presence on the mound. His fastball sits in the upper 80’s and has late sinking life to run into RH hitters. He compliments the fastball with a swing and miss slider. He does get stacked well in his back leg and has a clean arm path, so there is more in the tank for him in the future.

Josh Tiedemann has a large frame with a lean build making him projectable. Primary Shortstop, he works athletically to the baseball. Arm strength is beginning to develop along with accuracy.
