02/08/2020 - College PREP - Palmyra (Harrisburg), PA Jason ran his fastest 60 to date at 7.44 seconds during his last workout with The Factory. In the OF, Jason has a presentable glove, he tracks well, and he makes plays consistently. He plays through ground balls, his exchange is clean, and he throws with a long arm action through to his target. Quicker feet, playing lower, and added arm strength will spike defensive numbers. At the plate, Jason stands in squarely and athletically, and he loads his hands well. He hits line drives and uses his lower body. Jason can improve hitting with a shorter swing path and work on timing.

02/23/2019 - Mid Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 14-18) Jason is an athletic and talented 2020 prospect that was eager to learn and made several adjustments throughout the weekend. At the plate, Jason starts in a squared stance and gets his front foot down on time. He has explosive bat speed but needs to continue to improve his fastball contact rate in the zone. Creating backside drive with his lower half and keeping his head down at contact can help him stay balanced throughout the swing. Jason will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

07/27/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Jason is a long, athletic OF prospect who is an extremely hard worker and is always looking for ways to get better. He flashes some impressive raw power with the ability to drive the ball into the gaps and project to a potential middle of the order bat. He has strong, short stride that help launch his fast hands and bat through the zone. He stays balanced and back on the ball to use all fields and cover the entire strike zone to make himself a tough out. In the field, he shows feel for the position with good reads on balls off the bat and efficient routes. He can make all of the plays with sure hands and shows off an accurate arm to his target. Speed and agility drills will help him extend his range and become a complete outfielder. Jason is an intriguing, young prospect who we look forward to watching as he continues to improve.

07/17/2018 - National Tryout Plus - Trenton, NJ Jason showed well offensively and defensively during his last workout in Trenton. In the OF, Jason makes plays, he works behind the ball, and he reads it well off the bat. He has a presentable glove, his exchange is clean, and he throws with a long arm action with consistency to his target. At the plate, Jason has an athletic set-up, he makes consistent contact, and he can hit to all fields. He has a direct barrel and uses some lower body.

02/10/2018 - College PREP - Palmyra (Harrisburg), PA Jason is an athletic (6'1"/210) OF who will graduate in 2020. In the OF, Jason takes good angles and hustles to track down the fly-ball. He plays the hops well on the ground ball, has a clean transfer and fires accurate throws into his target. Added foot speed while also increasing his arm strength (long toss) will help to take his defensive abilities into the next level. At the plate, Jason has a tall/square set-up, good balance, and he flashes some bat speed. He has a short/direct barrel to the ball and hits line drives. Jason can improve at the plate with a looser grip, not lunging, and with better timing. Only a 2020 grad, Rankin has tools with upside on the diamond.

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).
