At 3B, Damian shows efficient footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He gets into an athletic position and fields with soft hands. He makes a clean exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them accurate and on-line to his target. Keeping his glove low on backhand plays can help Damian improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance with center balance. He leads well with his lower half and drives the ball to his pull side. Damian can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. On the mound, Damian gathers over the rubber and works with a loose arm, finishing with a controlled landing. He shows a two pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 59mph with arm side run. Changeup sits from 48-52mph with arm side run.

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).
