07/03/2019 - Under Armour Firecracker Classic 18U, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Clayton continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a tremendous future on the diamond. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 89 mph. Fastball shows a range of 84-89 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with late / sharp break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup and shows a plus feel for pitch with arm side run and sink. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches that will get outs at the next level. He has a big upside on the mound and will get looks from the top collegiate coaches with his abilities on the bump.

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.
