Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 1BPosition Projection

02/04/2018 - College PREP - Dayton, OH BJ is a tall, solid 1B who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying solid hitting abilities with well above average power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Barrel accuracy is a plus and he has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. At 1B, he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active but needs to attack balls more and play through with his body. Hands are soft / sure and presents well out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. He gets rid of the baseball through a clean exchange with accuracy on his throws but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. BJ has potential with time and room to progress his game.

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.
