J.D. Gregson, C/1B, Wakeland HS, Frisco, Texas (Baylor Commit)
Gregson led all hitters in a 4-3 game that saw his Rangers team top the Nationals, going 2-for-3 with a pair of hard-hit balls. He hit a line drive single to left field (94 mph exit velocity) in his first at-bat against a 76 mph curveball and then turned around a 91 mph fastball in his second at-bat—good for a 102 mph single up the middle.
Dylan Campbell, SS, Strake Jesuit HS, Houston (Texas Commit)
Listed as an infielder, Campbell got the start for the Rangers in center field on Wednesday and looked like a natural at the position. He made a particularly nice play when a ball was hit high and deep over his head to straightaway center. Campbell got a good jump on the ball and tracked it well, doing a nice job to flip his hips during the middle of the route and make a small course-correction to get back on line and make a solid running catch. Diving catches are nice and show off athleticism, but small adjustments and body control like this displays a feel for the smaller, more technical details of outfield defense.
