11/09/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona (Ages 12-14) Kaden is a long, strongly-built 3B prospect who is a great teammate and is always working hard to get better. He does a good job at third making plays and keeping the ball in front, knocking down hard hit balls. He has feel for the position, doing good work pre-pitch to be ready to field down the line or in the hole. He shows a clean exchange on feeds and throws across the diamond to make plays. At the dish, he gets on time with his front foot to launch through the zone. He makes good adjustments from pitch to pitch and is able to put the ball in play consistently. Working on being more direct to the ball will lead to more square contact and base hits. Kaden is a prospect we definitely want to keep an eye on moving forward.

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).
