Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • RHP/3BPosition Projection

12/27/2009 - Christmas Camp and Tournament #2 Mellinger continues to show steady play in his baseball abilities, especially at the plate where he was 4 for 11 at the event. He makes solid adjustments and will use the entire field, displaying patience. In the IF, he showed the ability to throw from all angles as he displayed range. On the mound, fastball showed good sinking action. Breaking ball displayed a 12/6 shape with early break with changeup maintaining arm speed with sinking action. Craig through a total of 6 scoreless innings in two outings during the tournament.

10/11/2009 - College PREP - Baltimore, MD Craig is a two-way player on the mound plus at 3B with a long, lean body that shows projection as he continues to physically mature and fill out. Foot speed is near below average as he must get on a speed / agility program to improve foot quickness for the next level. Feet are active but needs to be more aggressive in coming to get, playing through the baseball with his feet / hands. Hands are soft, clean, and sure but he plays high as he needs to get his glove down on the ground out front. Defensive abilities are average at 3B with slightly above average arm strength as he needs to get on a strict long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength, raising velocities. At the plate, hitting abilities and power are slightly above average through a balanced approach. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing the entire field as he shows a feel for the barrel. Power numbers will continue to increase as he learns to utilize his lower half more efficiently through the swing. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 74-77 mph. Breaking ball is best off speed pitch displaying 12/6 shape with tight spin and late breaking action. Slider shows 11/5 shape with short, tight break. Changeup is average, needing further development. With 2 years to further develop, Mellinger has abilities with time and room to improve.

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 (what he can do today), 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. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
