  • 1BPosition Projection

06/03/2020 - 2020 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National Florida Evan is a corner infielder who can swing it. At the plate, he has strong/centered balance with fluid rhythm to load. He takes an absolute hack, crushing the ball to the deep parts of the park (exit velocity = 90 mph). At 1B, he has plus lateral range (7.13 60 time) for a big guy, working from the ground-up with smooth actions. Transfer is quick as he fires strong throws zipping (86 mph velocity) across the diamond. A projectable 1B, Evan has a big upside with the makings of a special type player that will get looks from the top collegiate coaches and pro scouts.

01/17/2020 - 2020 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Evan is a tall, athletic 1B/RHP who showed as a prospect at the Under Armour Pre Season All American Tournament. At the plate he shows excellent hitting abilities with pro level power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick, (95 mph exit velocity) generating bat speed to and through a short / direct / level swing path, creating extension. Barrel accuracy is a plus with baseball exploding off the bat when centered with power showing best to the pull side. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Hands are firm and presents well out front. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds of the double play. Range is a plus (7.38 60 time) as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate with on line zip (83 mph velocity) to his target. On the mound, this righty has a 3 pitch arsenal in which to keep hitters guessing. FB shows a range of 75-78 mph with cutting action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with late sharp break and is his out pitch. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run. Control is well above average as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. Evan has a big upside and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues 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).
