Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • CPosition Projection

05/12/2019 - College PREP - San Antonio, TX Hudson is a lean, athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying solid hitting / power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works on line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 2.25 range with accuracy and zip (82 mph velocity) on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quickly. He tracks balls well and sticks balls in the zone through an athletic setup. He utilizes his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. With 2 years to further develop, Hudson has potential with time and room to continue 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 (tools), 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, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
