Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 3B/RHPPosition Projection

06/16/2013 - College PREP - Hoover (Birmingham), AL Joel is a thin, 2-way player who plays 3B and RHP. Defensively, Joel has playable hands and feet, and he moves well to the glove side. He has a quick exchange, and a loose arm with accuracy to his target. Defensive abilities can improve if Joel can soften his glove, play more through, and add arm strength. On the mound, Joel has a free Rm action, a controlled balance point, and his shoulders are level. Better direction, not throwing across his body, and eyes on target can help mound effectiveness get better. Offensively, Joel has a square set-up, a proper load, and good balance. He makes contact, and will need to shorten up, quicken his bat, and level off his swing.

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.
