09/02/2022 - Baseball Factory's All-Region Tournament (HS) with Video Showcase Jason is a 2023 2B who showcased his skills at the All-Region Tournament. At 2B, he starts with a good pre-pitch routine and active/efficient footwork. Fields from the ground up, with a low funnel, as he tries to center ball. Fields out front, with a clean transfer, and the ability to throw from multiple arm slots. Made accurate throws to first base with an arm velocity up to 82mph. A right-handed hitter, he starts with an athletic and even stance. Quiet head/eyes enable him to track pitches well. Good bat speed through the hitting zone, with extension out front, and ability to hit balls into both gaps. Reached base multiple times and had a bat exit velocity up to 85mph. With continued growth and development, we foresee him having a bright future on the baseball field.

07/27/2022 - Southwest Championships 17U, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Jason continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities at the SOUTHWEST 17U TOURNAMENT. At 2B, defensive abilities are now outstanding as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft / sure and presents out front. He utilizes his foot quickness in covering a lot of ground in the MIF. Throws are accurate with carry (84 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, hitting / power potential is now outstanding through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

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).
