07/12/2013 - Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Team One South Chase showed good offensive and defensive skills during his workout at Team One South. Offensively, Chase has good balance, nice barrel accuracy, and power to all fields. He hit at HR is live play and he gets down the line quickly. At 1st base, Chase presents his glove well, his hands are soft, and he fields out front. He moves well around the bag, and delivers the ball with accuracy to his target.

06/02/2013 - College PREP - Atlanta, GA Chase is a 1B with a solid body - 6'3"/215 lbs. The R/R defender is sure handed and has good range.

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).
