Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft / sure and presents well out front.

At the plate, hitting potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path.

At the plate, Jayden starts in an open stance, stays short to the ball, and makes consistent contact. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, attack the inside part of the ball, and create backside rotation with his lower half. He did a good job using the whole field during the games but he needs to be more aggressive on fastballs. On the bump, Jayden has good mound presence, gathers over the rubber, and separates on time. He competes on the mound and commands his fastball down in the zone. He needs to continue to work north to south and develop a changeup. Jayden will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

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).
