  1. 15 Nelson Rada VenezuelaOF Notes: Born: Aug. 24, 2005. B-T: L-L. Ht.: 6-0. Wt.: 168. If Rada had been born eight days later, he would be in the 2022-23 class instead, so he is one of the younger player in the upcoming 2021-22 class. Rada stood out playing for Venezuela at the U-15 World Cup Americas Qualifier in Sept. 2019 in Mexico. He was 5-foot-9 early on, but he's the son of a former professional basketball player in Venezuela and has grown a few inches leading up to his signing date. He's an instinctive player, especially in center field where he gets good reads off the bat with a quick first step and at least solid-average speed. Rada has a fairly short stroke from the left side with a good eye for the strike zone and mostly gap power that has trended up as he's gotten stronger. He trains with Felix Olivo, who also had Angels shortstop Arol Vera, and the Angelsare expected to sign Rada as well.
  2. BASEBALL AMERICASCOUTING REPORT Brandon Dufault Representative: NA Signing Scout: NA Dufault was one of the hardest throwers this spring in the Colonial Athletic Association. The 6-foot-5, 195-pound Northeastern reliever posted a 3.71 ERA with 22 strikeouts and 10 walks in 17 innings. Dufault's fastball lives at 93-96 mph and has reached 98. He operates mostly off his fastball, relying on his plus velocity against CAA hitters. His best offspeed is a slider, but it's often a below-average pitch that flashes a tick better at times. Dufault has a changeup, but it's not effective and he rarely throws the pitch. Dufault has a long arm stroke and needs to better sync up his somewhat funky mechanics to improve his control.
