09/30/2015 - Arizona Freshman/Sophomore Fall Classic Brooks continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities with a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times showed in the mid 2.20 range with accuracy and carry on his throws. Time will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Receiving / blocking tools show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, he continues to shine showing improvements through an athletic setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing with baseball jumping off the bat when centered as he works to stay inside the ball to utilize all fields. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and a leader behind the dish.

He can work on his transfers and exchanges around the bag at second. Behind the plate, Brooks has an athletic setup on the balls of his feet and he is sure handed receiving the baseball. He anticipates how certain situations will play out and reacts instinctively which is the sign of a smart catcher.

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.
