Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • OF/RHPPosition Projection

03/21/2010 - National Tryout - Carson, CA Christian continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities, now a class 5 type player. Foot speed continues to improve as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.35 runner. He utilizes his quick feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down fly balls as he works to get behind to play through. Offensively, hitting grade has improved as he displays a short, compact swing path through a solid, sound approach. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to utilize lower half more efficiently through the swing. Currently, he only projects in the OF for the next level.

12/27/2009 - Under Armour Recruiting Classic 2009 Gurrola improved his 60-yard dash time by over two tenths of a second, down from 7.72 to 7.50. In the outfield, he reacted well to balls off the bat and did a good job of charging the ball. His exchange was solid, as were his crow hop mechanics. His arm was accurate, and he did a good job of staying on top of his throws. Can work to quicken his feet and actions, and needs to work on using his lower half more to generate arm strength. At the plate, he stood in well during his at bats. He can work to widen out his stance a bit, needs to reach a more athletic position at launch - will help to work on getting stride foot down earlier. In addition, he can work to stay level with his shoulders and use more top hand in his swing. On the mound, he threw his fastball between 66 and 70. He threw two different breaking balls - both his curve and slider had good rotation and sweeping action. His arm stroke was short and quick from the glove, which offered some deception to the hitter. His direction was good, which allowed him to throw strikes for the most part. Needs to work to lengthen his arm action, and will need to work to get his delivery in synch with his arm accordingly in order to generate more arm speed and velocity. Overall, projects better as a position player.

09/13/2009 - College PREP - Azusa, CA Christian is a young, lean two-position player who projects best as a position guy. On the mound we saw a 1-plane fastball that topped out at 71. Showed an average 11/5 breaking ball and an average feel for a changeup as well. Repeatable delivery and good rhythm, but lacks arm strength and has a short arm stroke. Tends to throw across his body as well. In the outfield, Christian's arm plays a bit better. His footspeed and footwork need to quicken and his angles to the ball need to improve as well. Lacks polish in general out there. At the plate, he gets loaded up well and he is soft to his stride foot. Needs to widen out his base to use his lower half more effectively. Batspeed needs to improve, and better use of lower half will make a big difference. Has two springs to improve and gain strength.

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).
