Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He has leverage in his swing with the baseball jumping off of his bat when centered, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. At the event, he was 3 for 8 with a 2B.

07/23/2012 - 2012 Team One Northeast Showcase Justin is a tall and athletic right-handed pitcher with some run on his fastball. On the mound, he has a compact delivery with strong direction that allows him to maintain a quiet head throughout his delivery. His abilities on the mound should continue to develop as he gains a better feel for maintaining a strong front side as he makes his move to the plate.

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).
