Well deserved recognition from Prep Baseball Report Tennessee for two of Knoxville Catholic’s Juniors. Named PBR #1 Overall Prospect, Kaden Martin (2022) OF/LHP and “Names to Follow” Spencer Margolis (2022) OF were featured in Colton Provey’s November write-up. From PBR:
Kaden Martin, OF/QB1, Knoxville Catholic, 2022
The dual-sport athlete made a lot of noise at the PBR Future Games, leading the event for long distance (412 ft. via Trackman) and one of the top exit velocities at 102.3 mph. Big, physical frame (6-foot-1, 210-pounds) with great explosiveness. One of the premier power lefty bats as he continues to refine his hit tool with more consistency, but the ball jumps off the barrel. Martin committed to rounding out his offensive profile, and made great strides putting together more quality at bats. Picked up two hits, including a deep double into the LCF gap, and drew two walks while scoring once. Good defender at all three OF positions with strong arm and good carry on throws (91 OF Velo). Tossed an inning at Future Games, FB sat 83-86 with more in the tank. Mixed both CB at 69-72 and CH at 75-76, both solid secondary offerings with some upside.
Spencer Margolis, OF, Knoxville Catholic, 2022
5-foot-11, 180-pound outfielder with proportional frame and present strength. At the dish, balanced slightly crouched stance with quick load. Generates good bat speed (72 mph per Blast) and above average rotational data (15.2 G per Blast) while controlling the barrel through the zone. Consistent hard barrels (Avg: 80.1 mph) with some loud contact (Max: 89.4 mph per Trackman) to all fields. Defensively, strong runner (6.83 sixty) and range with solid arm strength.
