01/18/2019 - 2019 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Braxton is a talented outfield prospect who has a long, projectable build. In the field, Braxton has an athletic ready position. He moves with active footwork and agile actions covering good ground. Braxton fields the ball in a square position with a firm glove. He has a clean exchange and throws from a high 3/4 arm slot. His throws are accurate with good carry. As a left-handed hitter, Braxton has an open setup with comfortable hands. He has a small load and lunges with his stride. Braxton shows a long swing path and is developing bat speed. He is a contact type hitter who looks to put the ball in play. Overall, Braxton has skill on both sides of the ball giving him a bright future on the diamond.

08/01/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Braxton is an athletic and talented 2020 OF prospect that made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. In the OF, Braxton takes efficient routes to the ball and makes accurate throws to the bases. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, anticipate balls off the bat, and improve his first step quickness. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Braxton starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back, and hits off a firm front side. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, attack the inside part of the ball, and hunt the fastball. Braxton will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

04/22/2018 - College PREP - Louisville, KY Braxton is a lean, athletic OF who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is superior as indicated by his 60 time of 6.69. In the OF, he displays outstanding defensive abilities and utilizes his quick feet well in his lateral movement as he displays range. He works to get behind balls, playing through with momentum to his target. Reads are excellent as he takes proper first steps, displaying big play potential in the OF. Throws displaying life, accuracy and on line carry (85 mph velocity) as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. At the plate he continues shine, displaying well above average hitting abilities with solid power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work to and through a short / direct / level swing path, creating extension. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. With 2 years to further develop, Braxton has the makings of a special type player and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.

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).
