Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • LHP/OFPosition Projection

07/29/2019 - College PREP - York, PA JJ is a 2-way LHP/OF that will graduate in 2021. On the mound, JJ shows a 3-pitch mix with a FB, CB, SL. The FB shows some AS run, the CB has good shape at 2-8, and the SL is a little sharper at 1-7 and 62-63 mph. He gathers over the rubber well and keeps good direction as he works down the mound. JJ pitches out of the LO 3/4 slot showing good command. At the plate, JJ has an athletic stance with a short and square stride keeping his weight centered. He shows good bat speed with a short swing path. His strength is to the pull side but can be more effective by getting more rhythm in his swing. In the OF, JJ shows active footwork with agile range. He presents a strong glove fielding the ball square and makes clean exchanges as he creates momentum towards the target in the infield. JJ has several years to develop, and we look forward to seeing his progress.

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.
