Official Scouting Report

  • SSPosition Projection

08/09/2011 - College PREP - Bear (Wilmington), DE Joe showed similar skills in Bear, DE as he has done in previous workouts. Defensively, Joe showed soft / sure hands, fluid footwork, and he keeps his feet moving. He fields in a low / athletic position, from the right, and he keeps the ball in front of his body. Joe has a clean exchange and he throws with accuracy and carry to his target. An earlier glove and a longer / looser arm action can help defensive numbers improve. Offensively, Joe has a square set-up, a short stride, and good balance. He swings in good rhythm, he has good barrel accuracy, and he makes good use of his lower 1/2. More direct hands to the ball, and spraying it to all fields can help average hitting numbers spike.

09/04/2010 - Accelerated Infield Weekend Klusman continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Feet are active in taking good routes in working around the ball but needs to be more aggressive in playing through with his body. He shows plus body control as he gets his body into a sound fielding position through a low approach. Hands are soft, clean, and sure as he displays quick hands through is exchange in getting rid of the ball quickly. Throws show accuracy but will benefit by using his lower half more and getting on a long toss program to aid in building more arm strength with carry. Overall, Joe showed great footwork and solid approach through the fielding process.

08/11/2010 - College PREP - Bear (Wilmington), DE Joe is a young SS with a thin frame that shows projection as he continues to physically mature, filling out. Feet are aggressive but needs to be more active in coming to get, playing through with his body. He is light on his feet but needs to work on improving his foot quickness through a speed / agility program. Glove action is presented down and out front displaying soft, clean hands. He gets rid of the baseball with hands / feet working well together as he shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds and turns of the double plays. Throws show accuracy, flashing carry but will benefit by getting on a long toss program to further develop more carry and arm strength. Offensively, Klusman shows a balanced approach with hands working through a level swing path. He is a line drive type hitter with power numbers improving as he learns to utilize his lower half more efficiently through the swing. With 2 years to further develop, Joe has abilities with time and room to improve.

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).
