Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • SS/RHPPosition Projection

09/01/2019 - College PREP - San Francisco, CA DJ is an athletic SS/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2021. In the field, DJ shows quick footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front of his body. He makes a clean exchange and gets rid of the ball quickly, keeping his throws accurate and on-line to his target. At the plate, this switch hitter shows a solid swing from both sides. He sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He gets into his load well and hits against a strong front side. He barrels up the baseball and drives to his pull side. On the mound, DJ gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and extends through his release, staying inline towards the plate. DJ shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 75mph with tailing action. Breaking ball sits from 62-66mph with 11-5 break. Changeup sits from 67-68mph with arm side run as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Overall, DJ is a solid prospect who has the potential to contribute 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 (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.
