Official Scouting Report

  • Position Projection

02/10/2018 - Mid Atlantic Regional Accelerated Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14) John is a respectful and coachable prospect that made several adjustments during the hitting accelerated training weekend. At the plate, John starts in an open stance and recognizes pitches well. He tracks the ball, consistently finds the barrel, and uses the whole field. Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball and using the backside will allow him to stay balanced through contact. Creating pre pitch rhythm and loading his hands back to the launch position will allow him to be on time. John will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

10/07/2017 - FDI Pitching and Catching Accelerated Training Weekend (12-14) John is a RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the FDI Pitching and Catching Accelerated Training Weekend. On the mound, John has a clean, quick arm action and works to keep all of his pitches in the zone. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 59mph. Braking ball sits from 50-51mph with 10-4 break. Changeup ranges from 50-51mph. John can improve as a pitcher by separating his hands later in his motion and by releasing the ball later. With five more years to develop, John has the potential to further progress his skills on the mound.

07/17/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Rindge, NH Johnathan is a SS/RHP who will graduate in 2022. Defensively at SS, he attacks the GB with active footwork. He works hard by hustling on every play and tries to play through the ball towards his target. On the mound, this RHP has a 3-pitch mix and keeps his eyes locked in on the mitt. He delivers from a hi 3/4 arm slot with clean arm action and finishes in line towards home plate. With the stick, Johnathan displays a balanced/square setup. He swings on-plane through the zone and sprays pitches to all parts of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.

1. Lateral quickness
2. Develop soft hands
3. Quick exchange to throw
Pitching
1. Be a strike thrower
2. Strong frontside

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.
