  • OFPosition Projection

11/08/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) DJ continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He has some pop in his bat and finds the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. In the OF, he displays smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to work to get rid of the baseball quicker and build more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard.

08/12/2018 - College PREP - Kannapolis (Charlotte), NC Dylan is a solid OF/2B who will graduate in 2020. In the OF, he displays smooth / clean actions. He utilizes his aggressive feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. He needs to work to get behind balls and play through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At 2B, feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up. Glove action is soft / sure needs to present more out front out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate he shows an athletic, open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive approach. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 2 years to further develop, Dylan has abilities with time and room to improve his baseball abilities.

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).
