Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 2B/RHPPosition Projection

11/08/2019 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona (Ages 12-14) Donovan is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect that plays the game hard. At 2B, Donovan is on time with his prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and has feel for the position. He has a clean exchange and makes accurate throws. Improving his first step quickness and overall arm strength will improve his game at the position. On the bump, Donovan gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a loose arm action. He has a clean north to south delivery and commands the bottom part of the strike zone. At the plate, He loads his hands back into the launch position, he looks to do damage early, and has a simple middle of the field approach. He keeps the barrel on plane and creates backside drive with his lower half. Donovan needs to continue to use his lower half and keep his head down at contact. Donovan will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

At 2B, Donovan has an efficient prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and has a god first step to the ball. He has a clean exchange, gets rid of the ball quick, and makes strong throws. He needs to learn how to reads hops and play through the ball more efficiently. At the plate, Donovan starts in an open stance, he has a simple load, and good rhythm in his hands. He finds the barrel, has a middle approach, and hits the ball to all fields. He needs to continue to create backside rotation with his lower half and attack the inside part of the ball. On the bump, Donovan has confidence in his fastball and competes on every pitch. He finds a balance point, has a loose arm action, and accelerates over the front side.

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).
