  • 3B/RHPPosition Projection

09/15/2019 - College PREP - Indianapolis, IN Joshua is a tall 3B/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2021. In the field, Joshua shows efficient footwork and flashes good lateral range. He fields in a square position and makes a clean exchange. He gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them consistently on-line to his target. Presenting his hands to the ball sooner can help Joshua improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance and is fluid getting back into his load. He hits against a strong front side, leading to solid contact. Joshua can improve as a hitter by maintaining center balance. On the mound, Joshua gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and extends through his release, staying inline towards the plate. Joshua shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 70mph with arm side run. Breaking ball sits from 60-61mph with 11-5 break. Changeup sits at 65mph with arm side run as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Long tossing to build up his arm strength can help Joshua improve as a pitcher. Overall, Joshua is a solid prospect who has the potential to further develop his skills on the field.

12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Joshua shined once again at the event in Pirate City. In the MIF, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.

04/22/2018 - College PREP - Louisville, KY Joshua is an athletic OF/3B who has a promising future on the diamond. At 3B, defensive abilities are well above average as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through well with his body. Hands are soft / sure and he presents well out front. In the OF, he displays smooth / clean actions. He utilizes his feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. He needs to work to get behind balls and play through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive approach. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. With 3 years to further to develop, Joshua has a lot of 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).
