Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • LHP/OFPosition Projection

07/29/2011 - Under Armour Southwest Regional Tournament - 2011 Baker continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a well above average runner at 6.93. Feet are active in the OF as he moves well laterally displaying range. Arm strength has improved with throws showing life, accuracy, and on line carry into his target. Offensively, power grades have improved to outstanding as he displays strength in his swing with the baseball exploding off his bat when centered. Hands are quick, generating bat speed through an aggressive approach. On the mound, fastball showed his best velocity as he topped out at 84 mph. Fastball shows a range of 81-84 with late life. Breaking ball shows loose spin with gradual break. Joshua is a quiet leader and good teammate as he plays the game hard.

01/14/2011 - Under Armour Preseason All-America - 2011 Josh is a tall, projectable 2-way player who pitches and plays OF. On the mound, Josh has a quiet head, simple delivery, and good glove side lead. He has a sound, loose arm, level shoulders, and works in good rhythm. Josh commands both sides of the plate and attacks hitters with his FB that has late life. If Josh can drive more with his legs, and continue to add arm strength, mound effectiveness will continue to rise. In the OF, Josh has fluid footwork, sure / playable hands, and takes good routes and angles to the baseball. He works behind the ball well, catches with 2 hands, and follows his throws to his target. Josh throws accurately to his target with life and carry. At the plate, Josh has a good base, quiet load, and a level swing. He has good bat speed and can hit to all fields. If Josh can liven his hands and add physical strength, hitting grades can improve. Minor improvements can result in Josh getting even more looks from colleges in need of a solid two-way player.

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).
