Jeffrey "Chase" Greene
"On the other side of the clover leaf complex was Jupiter High School against West Boca Raton. West Boca’s Chase Greene played center field today, though he’s usually the shortstop. We have Greene ranked as the #50 high school prospect in the state and #242 in the country. Greene is a speedster who probably fits best in the outfield, anyway. He didn’t catch any fly balls when I was watching, but he really scooted to a single that went into the gap.
There are a lot of scouts who question his ability to stay in the infield. I believe he’d have a chance at second base, but he has better upside in center. Though his arm is well below-average, he has a chance for plus range out there. Though I didn’t get a good running time in this game, he would grade out as a 65 runner on the 20-80 scale.
The 5-9, 160 righthanded hitting Greene will have to figure out a pesky offensive game to take advantage of his speed; he doesn’t project as a big power guy or middle order hitter. The bat-speed and raw power isn’t quite there for that. In the two at-bats I watched, Greene struck out and flew out. He didn’t look comfortable against the curveball and that will be something that might come on in the coming years. Greene has committed to the University of South Florida."
