Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • RF/OFPosition Projection

08/06/2012 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 Hillyer showed as a RHP/OF at the event but currently projects best on the mound for the next level. His delivery is sound / repeatable, allowing his arm to work free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 77-79 mph with slight run. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break and shows flashes of being a quality pitch when he stays on top. In the OF, his feet are active as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls but needs to work on getting behind balls more to play through and continue to improve defensive grades. At the plate, Benjamin shows a solid setup with balance. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep his hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Ben is the kind of player any coach would like to have on his team.

03/18/2012 - College PREP - Bowie, MD Ben is an athletic, 2-way player who pitches and plays OF. On the mound, Ben has a loose arm action, level shoulders, and good glove tuck. He hides the ball well, attacks the zone, and finishes in a complete position. Added arm strength and sharper off-speed can help mound effectiveness improve. In the OF, Ben has a low approach, playable feet, and firm hands. He makes plays, uses his hops well, and throws with a short / quick arm with accuracy and life to his target. Working behind fly balls better and not opening his hips can help improve OF skills. Offensively, Ben has a closed set-up and good balance. He has a level swing, barrel accuracy, and he can spray to all fields. Ben swings in good rhythm and with more direct hands to the ball, and more lower 1/2, offensive numbers can spike.

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).
