Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 3BPosition Projection

05/20/2018 - College PREP - Gambrills, MD John is a lean 3B who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying well above average hitting abilities with outstanding power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are strong and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields, flashing gap-to-gap pop. At 3B, he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active and displays proper footwork as he plays through balls with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. With 2 years to further develop, John has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.

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.
