10/07/2020 - Arizona Senior Fall Classic Gavin continues to show as a top prospect on the diamond. Behind the plate, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest and is a wall. Receiving / blocking skills are outstanding tools that will play well at the next level. Arm strength is strong (84 mph velocity) and is deadly accurate with throws and pop times in the 1.88 range as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Baseball IQ is off the wall and he does a great job of handling pitching staff and will control the game. Offensively, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage, resulting in a barrel explosion (84 mph exit velocity) with the ball screaming off of his barrel. At the event, he was 4 for 8 with a 2B. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and a leader behind the dish.

01/12/2020 - College PREP - Waipahu (Honolulu), HI Gavin showed improvements offensively and defensively during his last workout. He is an athletic catcher with a good stick. Offensively, Gavin stands in athletically, he has a good load, and short stride toward the pitcher. He has explosive bat speed, a consistent/direct barrel, and he has good power to all fields. Behind the plate, Gavin showed a presentable glove, active feet, and a low target. He blocks and receives well, his exchange is clean, and he throws with momentum and accuracy from a short arm action to 2nd base. Continued work on blocking and added arm strength will help abilities behind the plate continue to get better.

01/13/2019 - College PREP - Honolulu, HI Gavin is a tall, thin, catcher who will graduate in 2021. Defensively, Gavin has fluid/active feet, good body movements, and he looks the ball into his glove. He sits in squarely, his exchange is quick and clean, and he throws with accuracy from a quick release to 2nd base. Pop times were as low as 2.08 seconds. If Gavin can sit in lower, get closer to the plate, and avoid reaching, catching skills will further improve. Offensively, Gavin has a tall/open stance, a short/square stride, and good balance. He makes hard contact and uses his lower body. Hitting can get better if Gavin can level off his swing and work on barrel accuracy.

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).
