Official Scouting Report

06/30/2014 - College PREP - Erie, PA Austin displayed solid skills offensively and behind the plate as his last workout in Erie. He is a gap to gap type hitter with simple actions and good bat speed. He shows solid balance, a square stride, and power in his bat. If Austin can liven his hands, improve his timing, and use more lower 1/2, hitting will further improve. Behind the plate, Austin showed well too, with proper footwork, sure hands, and good body control. He blocks quickly, takes solid angles, and throws with accuracy to second base. Catching grades can improve if Austin can quicken his feet and shorten his arm stroke/release when throwing to second base.

07/01/2013 - College PREP - Erie, PA Austin is a talented 2-way player behind the dish as well as in the OF. Behind the plate, he sits in well remaining relaxed with good flexion. He has a clean/quick exchange and gets the ball down to 2nd in as low as 2.07 working in-line toward 2B. In the OF, Austin takes good angles and works to get behind the fly ball. He plays through the ball well and makes accurate throws toward his target. Offensively, Braendel remains balanced and has good rhythm, getting into a solid loaded position. He displays patience tracking the ball into the zone and has the ability to use the whole field. A strong arm, quick exchange, and abilities at the plate make this well rounded ball player one to keep an eye on.

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.
