  • RHP/SSPosition Projection

12/10/2021 - Baseball Factory Academic All-American Tournament Joshua is a 2024 prospect out of Katy, TX who continues to show improvements his baseball abilities at the Academic All-American showcase. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At SS, he displays smooth/fluid actions. Feet are active as he plays through it as he attacks balls. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 71-74 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Control is solid as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. We look forward to seeing what the future holds as Joshua enters his sophomore baseball season.

08/08/2021 - All-In Membership - Tomball (Houston), TX Joshua is a SS/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2024. Tall frame with broad shoulders, athletic build and strength present. At SS, he showed active feet and ability to create good fielding angles. Short arm action, with a quick release, and ability to throw from multiple arm slots. Accurate/on-line throws, with good momentum towards target, and an arm velocity of 78mph across diamond. On the mound, he keeps eyes on target and showed ability to repeat his delivery. Some deception to his delivery as he changed arm slots. 4 pitch pitcher who throws a FB that topped out at 74mph with some movement arm side, a 10/4 shaped breaking ball, a slider with 9/3 shape, and a changeup he throws with FB arm speed. CB was best pitch during his bullpen. A right-handed hitter, he hits from an even and athletic stance. He activates his hands, with good balance at contact, and ability to keep his hands inside the baseball. Good barrel control as he sprayed balls to all fields with a bat exit velocity of 80mph during BP. With 3 years of continued growth and development, we see him having a bright future on the baseball field.

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).
