Conner Bock – 1B/OF – Sage Hill HS – Newport Beach, Calif.

- 2014-15 as a junior - .333 BA, .481 OBP with 6 HR, 34 RBI, 31 runs scored and 20 BB in 78 AB in 27 games
- 2013-14 as a sophomore - .456 BA, .563 OBP with 3 HR, 29 RBI and 29 runs scored in 68 AB in 22 appearances
- Named First Team All-Academy League as a junior and Second Team as a sophomore
- 2015 Perfect Game Underclass Honorable Mention
- Scouting Report: Other than Sabouri and Flower, this is the guy I'm most excited about. Not only is he a masher at the plate, but Bock is also a very solid defender, who can move well both at first and in the outfield ... 7.0-second 60-yard dash, which is above average for a player of his size at his positions (corner outfield and first base). While that’s not blazing speed, it was good enough for him to swipe 16 bases this past season in 19 chances ... Very good overall athlete, who pitches ... Went 4-3 with a 2.37 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 38.1 innings as a bullpen lefty, with one save in 10 appearances ... Bock held an offer from UC-Santa Barbara, who offered right before he visited Berkeley, with interest from USC, Cal Poly-SLO and Arizona State ... Adding this kind of lefty power bat to the power from the right side that Flower brings gives the Bears a balanced power profile in the future.

Uses curve and change up as strikeout pitches, very well-developed ... Short arm action needs some mechanical tweaking, but he has good late life thanks to that arm action, so there's going to have to be a middle ground ... Cal was on Horn early, before he'd ever spent any significant time on Varsity, but his projectable frame has certainly blossomed, and now he's got the build of a power pitcher or corner infielder ... Lots of suddenness to his delivery, but needs to hide the ball a bit better.

- Scouting Report: Hesitation in his motion effective at disrupting timing ... Has limited his offseason throwing, saving wear and tear on shoulder and elbow ... From BayAreaWorldSeries.com: “Arman is a very polished left-handed pitcher with a slight build, his fastball was 88 to 86 Mph. He worked it to both sides of the plate with a solid command and was able to cut up hitters with a good down angle and small arms side run he had smooth actions and quick arm. Very deceptive off the mound as he sets up on the third base side and strides towards the left-handed hitters box, creating very tough angles, breaking ball was 76 to 70 for the changeup was a little hard at 80 to 76. Huge upside for this lefty as the suitors will start lining up, very, very soon."
