Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • OF/SSPosition Projection

07/27/2021 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (HS) Joshua is a coachable OF/SS prospect who worked hard on his skills during the National World Series at Pirate City. In the field, Joshua shows active footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front of his body. His exchange is clean and he gains ground well on his throws, keeping them accurate to his target. Long tossing can help Joshua build up his arm strength. At the plate, this switch hitter sets up in an open stance with loose hands. He gets into a simple load and rotates his core through his swing well, driving the ball from gap to gap. Joshua can barrel up more baseballs by working through a shorter, more level swing path. Overall, Joshua is a solid prospect who has the potential to further build upon his skills on the field.

06/10/2021 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Irvine (Los Angeles), CA Joshua is an athletic OF/3B prospect who continues to showcase his skills on the diamond. In the field, Joshua shows active footwork and is agile covering ground. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front with soft hands. His exchange is clean and he gains ground well on his throws, keeping them on-line through his target. At the plate, this switch hitter sets up in an athletic stance and takes a short stride. He is fluid to load and drives through well with his lower half. He works through a level swing with fast bat speed, leading to strong gap to gap power. Overall, Joshua is a talented prospect who has the potential to further build upon his skills on the field.

12/18/2020 - All-In Membership - San Bernardino, CA Joshua is an athletic OF/3B who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.39 60 time. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls and works to get behind but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers ground. At 3B, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows as a switch hitter with similar abilities from both sides. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 2 years to further develop, Joshua has 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 (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).
