05/28/2020 - 2020 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National South Braden is an extremely talented prospect who had an impressive showing at the BF South Showcase. He has an athletic build with big arm strength (97 mph raw velocity) and a pretty swing from both sides of the plate. He shows excellent plate discipline and uses his quick hands to deliver the barrel on time. He showed a bit more power from the left side over these two days, but has feel both RH and LH. Defensively he has confident actions in the OF and moves through balls well. His arm is a weapon as he throws accurately and with serious carry. Braden also hit some balls hard in the live action and continues to prove he is an advanced player with loud tools.

At the plate, Braden loads his hands back into the drive position and stays balanced through contact on both sides. From the right side he keeps a quiet head and attacks the ball with his lower half. On the left side he hits off a firm front side and has quick hands. Braden will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

09/27/2017 - Arizona Freshman Fall Classic Braden continues to show the makings of a special type player with improvements in his baseball abilities. He continues to show as a switch hitter and has improved his hitting / power potential from both sides. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields from both sides through a line drive approach. At the event, he was 2 for 5 with 6 BB as he displays a solid eye and patient approach. In the OF, he displays smooth / athletic actions. He reads balls well off the bat and utilizes his athletic feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. He works behind the baseball and plays through with momentum to his target and gets rid of the baseball quickly. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best he can be.

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).
