06/25/2012 - College PREP - Amelia (Cincinnati), OH Braden is a SS/RHP that will graduate in 2013. Currently, he projects slightly better on the mound for the next level. Delivery is sound / repeatable as he works through a high 3/4 arm slot. Fastball shows a range of 73-75 mph on a slight downhill plane. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with slight break. Command/control is a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches, locating to both sides of the plate. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as more arm strength is developed through a long toss program. At SS, feet are active and he shows clean hands. For defensive grades to continue to improve, he needs to attack ground balls more, play through, improve foot speed, and present hands more out front. At the plate, Scott shows a balanced approach and makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. He needs to work to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields, and use his lower half more to improve hitting / power grades. Braden has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
