Official Scouting Report

  • SSPosition Projection

01/17/2014 - Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament Alika showed good switch hitting abilities as well as solid INF skills during the Pre-Season. At the plate, Alika has a balanced approach, good bat speed, and gap power. He has good barrel accuracy, slid hand-eye coordination, and he swings in good rhythm. At SS, Alika is light on his feet, he has good range, and he fields out front. He has soft hands, a quick exchange, and a fluid arm action to his target.

10/09/2013 - Arizona Senior Fall Classic Alika is a 2-way player as a SS/RHP who showed well in Arizona. Defensively in the INF, he works around the ground ball and shows plus body control through the play. He has a clean exchange and makes accurate throws across the diamond. His athleticism allows him to get to balls hit to his right and left. Offensively, Sakurai shows a crouched/open stance and solid base. He had some quality at bats and battles at the dish. At the event he went 5 for 9 with 4 singles and a double. On the mound, this RHP fills up the zone and throws strikes with both pitches. He works at a smooth tempo, attacked hitters, and got outs. More lower 1/2 drive will help to increase velocity. Alika has skills and should have success the upcoming season.

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 (tools), 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, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
