Position: OF
Team: Valley View HS (AR)

Slade Caldwell - Prospect Profile

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - March 18th: "Caldwell is going to inevitably be compared to current D-backs star Corbin Carroll given his size, well-rounded toolset and high-energy style of play on the field. The comp is not a perfect one, but scouts have been consistently positive about Caldwell’s pure baseball skills for the last full year or so."

Joe Doyle - Future Star Series - March 18th: "He creates stretch, dragging the barrel through the zone with compact violence. Don't let the physique fool you, he can mash. Pound for pound, one of the more impressive bats in the class and some of the sneakiest bat speed in the class too."

MLB.com - March 8th: "His 5-foot-8 frame means he has shorter levers and a smaller strike zone than most prospects, and he parlays them into a quick left-handed stroke and on-base ability. While he won't be a slugger, he has impressive bat speed and enough strength to provide 15 or more homers per season. "

Keith Law - The Athletic - March 7th: "Why isn’t Caldwell in the top 10, you ask? Because he’s 5-foot-5 1/2, and it’s going to take a GM or scouting director with a lot of job security to take a player this short with their first pick."

Aram Leighton - Just Baseball - February 15th: "His build and skillset reminds evaluators of Jett Williams and he has the patience and feel for the strike zone to back it up. Possessing wiry strength, Caldwell uses every ounce of his frame to generate more impact than many would expect."
