01/17/2014 - Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament McFadden has a solid, strong build at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds. He imparts his strength to contact well, makes an aggressive move to contact and the ball jumps off his bat at times. His route is direct and his stroke is loose and full. As long as he stays strong in his lower half and maintains his connection to the ground from launch thru contact, he has potential to drive the ball with authority. Defensively, isn't as far along. He may be best suited for 1B as he continues. Can work to improve the quickness in his feet, and to get his hands more out front to play the ball. Overall, has ability to hit along with raw power to carry him.

06/05/2013 - Under Armour Southeast Championships, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Dakota is an athletic RHP/SS with explosive bat speed and a strong arm. Defensively, Dakota is a hard-nosed defender that will keep the ball in front and is an accurate thrower with carry. He uses his hands pretty well and will benefit from improving his fielding position to be lower with his hands a little further out front and his fingers down. Dakota showed a lot of versatility by playing 2B, SS and 3B as well as some OF where he also moved to the ball very well. On the mound, Dakota comes right after hitters with a solid fastball and is developing off speed to keep hitters off balance. He struggled with command at times but remained confident and made pitches to get himself out of trouble by pitching to contact and allowing his defense to help. At the plate, Dakota is an aggressive hitter with a ton of bat speed and can hit the ball a long way. Continuing to work on seeing the ball deeper into the zone will allow him to better access the entire field and ultimately will make him more effective. He has a balanced set up and maintains good rhythm and tempo in his load and launch phases, and will benefit from working the drills covered in practice to maximize his offensive potential. Overall, Dakota is a very disciplined young man with great make up and a strong competitive pedigree. He handles himself well in a competitive atmosphere and with continued hard work has the potential to achieve his goal of playing at the next level.

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).
