Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • CPosition Projection

10/06/2019 - College PREP - Washington (Pittsburgh), PA David is a solid catcher who will graduate in 2022. is a lean C/2B who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, feet are quick and active as he works in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 2.60 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He tracks balls well and sticks balls in the zone but needs to square up his stance and needs to utilize his body more through the blocking process. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more aggressively. With 3 years to further develop, David has abilities with time and room to progress his game.

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).
