01/12/2018 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at Historic Dodgertown Joshua is a coachable, hardworking player who is also a great teammate. Behind the plate, feet are active working in line through a clean transfer/exchange. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is clean but will benefit by presenting an earlier/lower target. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to improve flexibility and work to get down sooner. At the plate, he shows a closed setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Fastball shows a range of 48-52 mph with arm side run. Control is a plus as he throws strikes and locates to both sides of the plate. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.

Behind the plate, Joshua has fluid footwork, agile movements, and he sits in low. He has a quick/clean exchange, and a loose arm action with consistency to his target. On the mound, Joshua stands over the rubber well, he has a clean arm action, and keeps his eyes on target. He has a compact delivery, gets good extension on his pitches, and uses his lower body well. At the plate, Joshua has an athletic set-up, good balance, and a rhythmic swing. He separates on-time, makes square contact, and can work the ball gap to gap.

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).
