Official Scouting Report

  • 6Class Rating
  • OF/LHPPosition Projection

08/20/2018 - College PREP - Philadelphia, PA Colby is a thin, athletic, 2-way player who plays OF and LHP. Defensively, Colby has quick feet, he attacks the ball aggressively, and has good range to the baseball. He fields athletically in a square position, has a clean exchange, and throws with accuracy from a quick/short arm action to his target. Added arm strength and working behind the ball sooner will help defense improve. On the mound, Colby has good balance, nice lefty arm side run on his FB, and he lands in a square direction with a proper length stride. Mound effectiveness can improve if Colby can loosen his arm action, get more extension, and finish in a more complete position. At the plate, Colby has a crouched stance, a short stride, and good balance. He swings aggressively, has a direct barrel to the ball, and he gets his lower body through the zone. A looser grip, smoother actions, and added bat speed will help hitting grades spike.

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.
