07/25/2014 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City Ian is a two way player who continues to improve at 1B/RHP. On the mound, he displays a good front side and balance point. He can improve his arm extension on his finish. At 1B, he shows good arm strength and very good hands. he can round out his skills with better footwork around the bag and with quicker lateral movement. At the plate, Ian sets up well, has a good load, has good power and understands how to hit. He can improve as a hitter with better balance and letting the ball travel into the hitting zone. A great kid who is very respectful, Ian stays willing to learn and puts in a lot of effort each time out.

03/30/2014 - National Tryout - Washington (Pittsburgh), PA Ian continues to progress on the diamond. With the bat, the RH hitter stands in well with quiet actions and a smooth load. Barrel delivery is level as he squares the ball up and hits it on a line. He is aggressive and is looking to hit when he steps into the box. At 1B, he moves into a square fielding position and fields the ball cleanly. He shows good footwork around the bag and can make adjustments to inaccurate throws. On the bump, Ashby lets it fly from a free/loose arm action. He has a repeatable delivery and fills up the zone, throwing strikes. As only a 2018 grad - Ian has a lot of time to develop his game.

11/14/2013 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City Ian is a two-way player that is a 1B/RHP. Defensively, he showed good footwork around the bag, he fields out in front, and reaches a good position to throw. He can work on playing lower in his fielding position as well as improving his foot speed to increase fielding grades. On the mound, Ian showed a controlled balance point with a smooth delivery and tempo. His arm action is fluid with square soft direction. As Ian learns to use his lower half to drive off the mound he will continue to see improvement in his overall delivery. Offensively, Ian showed a direct/level swing path with good balance and lower half through contact. His load is on time getting his hands back but can work on having better rhythm. Pitch selection is also an area that he can improve on focusing on attacking the ball earlier in the count. Ian is a solid player and displayed tools that will translate at the high school level next year.

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.
