  • CPosition Projection

12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City McDaniel is a hardworking catcher with a positive attitude and loves to compete and did show on the mound for the first time. Currently, he projects best behind the plate for the next level. Feet are quick / active as he works in line to his target through a solid setup and clean transfer / exchange. Pop times where in the 2.00 range with accuracy / carry on his throws as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. He will control the running game with his feet / arm. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, he shows an open setup with balance and an aggressive approach. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed and he has strength in his swing with baseball jumping off the bat when centered, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. At the event, he was 1 for 6 with a 3B. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 76-79 mph. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with gradual break. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength, develops better off speed pitches, and work to throw more strikes.

06/16/2013 - College PREP - Hoover (Birmingham), AL Josh is a solid, athletic catcher who will graduate in 2014. Defensively, Josh has a good set-up, soft hands, and he blocks well. He moves well laterally, his exchange is quick and clean, and he throws with carry and accuracy to 2nd base. Less body sway and quicker feet will only help defense improve. Offensively, Josh has a square set-up, good balance, and a short / square stride. He has fast bat speed, he makes consistent contact, and he gets his lower 1/2 through. If Josh can improve his load, and shorten / level off his swing, hitting numbers will rise.

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).
