09/12/2020 - Fall Pro Training Experience - TX (HS) Garrett continues to show as a prospect on the diamond with improvements in his baseball abilities. At SS, defensive abilities are outstanding as he displays smooth actions. Feet are active as he works to square balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick (86 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 79-81 mph with sinking action. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. Control is outstanding as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.

Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel and makes consistent hard contact (86 mph exit velocity) and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. On the mound, delivery is sound and repeatable allowing his arm action to work well to the plate. Fastball was 80-82 mph. Breaking ball displays 3/9 shape with across break.

At the plate, Garrett starts in an open stance and keeps his hands in a low, attack, position. In game, Garrett has a middle approach and went 2-6. He gets his front foot down on time, gets the barrel flat to the ball, and stays balanced through contact. On the bump, Garrett commands his fastball and isn't afraid to pitch inside. He gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and does a tremendous job of riding his back leg toward the plate. He has a strong glove side and works north to south in his delivery. Garrett will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Garrett has a good foundation and made several adjustments over the weekend at Pirate City. In the OF, Garrett has active pre pitch movement and gets into a good fielding position. He is aggressive to the to the ball and makes accurate throws. Working behind the ball and following through on his throws will allow him to further his skills at the position.

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).
