06/12/2013 - Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Team One Florida Balter has a lean frame with some present strength at 6-foot and 180 pounds. He posted a low pop time of 2.03 between innings, and registered a time of 2.06 in a game - both better than his previous low with us of 2.09. The ball got out of his hand easy, and had carry through the bag. His exchange was simple and clean, and his arm action was compact. He tended to get a little upright, and has room to quicken his feet to improve his pop times even more. He sat well to receive, actions were quiet and target was low. Hands were soft to receive the ball. Moved well laterally to block, got down quick and surrounded balls to his left and right well - blocking in games was better than in the workout, proof of quick and precise reactions. At the plate, he showed hand-eye coordination and strong hands and arms. His head was quiet and his route to contact was good. Tended to slide his hips laterally, and generally was over active with his lower half too soon - didn't allow for full rotation of his core through contact, though he was able to make hard gap to gap contact even despite this. Has natural ability to work with, and still has untapped potential.

01/27/2013 - College PREP - Delray Beach, FL Alex is a lanky, athletic C/OF that will graduate in 2014. Currently, he projects best as a catcher for the next level. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.34 60 time. Feet are active as he works in line through a quick / clean transfer and exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.09-2.21 with accuracy / carry on his throws. Receiving / blocking skills are quality tools that will play well at the next level. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls but needs to work on getting behind balls more to play through and improve defensive grade. At the plate, Balter continues to shine through an athletic setup as he displays outstanding hitting abilities. Hands are quick, generating plus bat speed through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Barrel accuracy is solid with the baseball exploding off his bat when centered. Alex has a ton of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
