09/23/2020 - Arizona Sophomore Fall Classic Gaelen is a coachable 1B/LHP prospect who showcased his skills during the Arizona Fall Classic. In the field, Gaelen starts in a good ready position and shows smooth footwork. He gets into position on time and makes the routine plays. His exchange is clean and he throws with a loose arm, keeping his throws accurate and strong through his target. Increasing his lateral range can help Gaelen make more plays. At the plate, this switch hitter sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He is smooth getting into his load and remains centered in his lower half. He takes a short swing with decent bat speed, leading to consistent contact and gap to gap pop. Gaelen can produce more pop off the barrel by driving his lower half more.

Gaelen shows a two pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 76mph with tailing action. Breaking ball sits at 63mph with 2-8 break.

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).
