Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 3B/RHPPosition Projection

11/08/2012 - Baseball Factory Training & Competition at Pirate City Russell showed as a 3B and on the mound for the first time but currently projects best at 3B for the next level. Power numbers at the plate have improved as he displays strength in his swing with the baseball jumping off his bat when centered. Power will continue to increase as he learns to use his lower half more. Hands work inside the ball as he utilizes all fields. At the event, he was 3 for 6 with 2 2B. In the IF, feet are active as he works to square balls up and displays clean hands. He needs to play through while presenting hands more out front to continue to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 65-70 mph with slight arm side run with 10/4 breaking ball.

08/05/2012 - College PREP - Council Bluffs (Omaha), IA Kalob is an athletic, average sized 3B who will graduate in 2014. Defensively, Kalob is aggressive to the ball, he has playable hands and feet, and he fields out in front. He has a clean exchange and throws with a short arm with average strength to his target. Playing more on the balls of his feet, and adding arm strength can help defensive grades improve. At the plate, Kalob has a square set-up, a short stride, and quick hands. He makes contact and stays on top of the ball. Kalob will need to loosen his grip, add bat speed, and work on his timing in order to get better offensively.

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).
