07/21/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Colton continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 69 mph. Fastball shows a range of 67-69 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Stock to the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength and works to throw more strikes. At the plate he continues to shows as a switch hitter with similar abilities from both sides. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. At 1B, feet are active as he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. He works to square ground balls up, displaying clean hands as he makes the routine plays. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he increases foot quickness. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.

12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Colton is a talented 2025 2-way prospect that worked hard and made several adjustments throughout the week. At 1B, Colton is on time with his prep step, he has a quick first step to the ball, and has a clean exchange on double plays. He picks the ball well but needs to improve his range on both sides of the ball. At the plate, Colton starts in a tall stance, creates rhythm in his hands, and gets his front foot down on time. He his off a firm front side, gets extension through contact, and shows pull side power. He needs to continue to keep a quiet head, stay balanced through contact, and creates backside drive with his lower half. On the bump, Colton shows good mound presence, gathers over the rubber, and has an athletic delivery. He needs to continue to separate on time and work north to south in his delivery. His best pitch is his fastball but he needs to continue to develop the change up before he continues with his curveball. Colton is eager to learn and will continue to improve with experience.

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.
