  • 2B/RHPPosition Projection

01/13/2017 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Austin is a skilled, versatile 2-way player who showed well during his time in Arizona. Defensively, he shows active prep and is aggressive to come and get the GB. He covers ground laterally, makes the plays with soft hands and works through the ball well in-line toward his target. Offensively, he shows a patient approach with centered balance. Hands are quick whipping the barrel on a level path as he squares the ball up and hits line-drives. On the mound, Austin has a repeatable delivery and pounds the zone with strikes. He gets good glove side lead and glove tuck, driving in-line toward the plate. FB now tops out at 81 mph while showing slight tail. Breaking ball has 12/6 shape as he throws it for strikes consistently. He commands the zone and works the ball in and out. Cappas (2019 grad) is a talented player who has upside on the diamond.

12/04/2016 - National Tryout Plus - Sacramento, CA Austin continues to progress as a switch hitting SS and RHP. On the mound he showed best, as he featured a 79-81 mph fastball with late sinking action, a late-breaking 12-6 curveball which projects as a true out pitch and a changeup in the low 70's which is still developing. Mechanics were clean, as he kept his body under control and showed the ability to repeat his delivery well. Offensively, from both sides of the plate, he showed the ability to hit the ball hard to the opposite field, as he loaded his hands on time, separated well and whipped the bat thru the zone with very good bat speed. Defensively, he showed good lateral range to his left and right and impressive glove skills. Only a 2019 graduate, Austin has a bright future in this game and projects very well going forward.

10/18/2015 - College PREP - Santa Rosa, CA Austin continues to show well on the diamond. This versatile 2-way player can make things happen. Offensively, this switch hitter currently shows better from right right side. He works back into a strong loaded position and works to engage his lower 1/2 driving the ball with pop (exit velocity = 84 mph). At SS, Austin has plus lateral range working lightly on the balls of his feet. He makes the backhand play smoothly and has the ability to throw from multiple arm slots. On the mound, this RHP has an effective 3-pitch mix coming from a high 3/4 arm slot. He gets good glove side lead and stays directional toward the dish. Working to finish with more extension on his follow through will help to improve command. Only a 2019 grad - Austin has tools with still a lot of time to develop.

07/24/2015 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 Austin displayed plus ability on all sides of the baseball at the Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City. On the hill, he threw his FB from 75-79 with tail, and spun a 10/4 CB from 70-71. He gathered well over the rubber and exploded down towards the plate with good front side strength and lower half drive. He was loose/clean/free with his arm action, repeated well, and stayed low in the zone. Offensively, he had quick hands to get the barrel through the zone and was fluid throughout the stance/launch/hit sequence. He drove with his lower half to help accelerate the barrel through the zone and worked to stay on a level path with top hand strength. Defensively in the MIF, he had soft hands to make plays with his glove in front and was controlled with his body to have strength through the fielding process. He worked on getting better angles to make plays and worked to be more aggressive to come get. In all - Austin is a rising freshman that has some present tools that play and will look to help his high school this spring.

12/07/2014 - Interactive Video Program - Sacramento, CA Austin is a talented 2-way player as a SS/RHP. With the bat, this RH swing shows a square setup with good balance. He has fluid rhythm to load and waits for his pitch. Swing path is level as he connects and gets extension through his finish. At SS, he hustles around the GB and works low from the ground-up.

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).
