Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • SS/RHPPosition Projection

07/01/2013 - College PREP - Erie, PA Colton is a tall and thin SS/RHP who can swing it. Offensively, he shows good balance and patience as he tracks the ball into the zone. He makes hard contact and uses the whole field. Driving his backside lower 1/2 will help to increase power at the plate. At SS, he is sure handed and makes the plays. Colton works to get around the ground ball and into a square fielding position. Presenting his glove out in front will help to avoid getting the in-between hops. On the bump, Messina has a 3-pitch mix. He is long and free toward the plate working in-line and downhill. He keeps the ball down in the zone and finishes out over his front side. Off-speed are best pitches as his CB shows 11/5 shape while CH has sink. A long toss program and more lower 1/2 drive will help to increase FB velocity. Colton has solid tools and will only continue to get better as he is a 2015 graduate.

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.
