Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • C/RHPPosition Projection

01/18/2019 - 2019 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Chris is an athletic C/RHP prospect who showcased his skills during his time at the Under Armour All-American Pre-Season Tournament. Behind the plate, Chris presents a good target to the pitcher and receives with soft hands. He gets into a square secondary stance and replaces his feet when throwing. He makes a clean exchange and gets rid fo the ball quickly, keeping his throws on the 1B side of the 2B bag. Chris moves efficiently to block and covers up well. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He gets his hands activated on time and drives through well with his lower half. He takes a smooth swing with fast bat speed, leading to consistent contact and solid pop. On the mound, Chris gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a clean arm and stays inline towards the plate, finishing with his chest over his front knee. Chris shows a two pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 85mph with good arm side run. Breaking ball sits from 66-67mph with sharp 10-4 break. Overall, Chris is a talented two-way prospect who will be one to follow going into his sophomore season.

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.
