10/06/2013 - College PREP - Trenton, NJ Kevin continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date but will benefit by increasing foot quickness. At the plate is where he has improved the most through an athletic setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with the ball jumping off the bat when centered, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to stay inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. At SS, he works to square balls up and displays clean hands. He needs to attack balls more, play through while presenting hands more out front to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program.

12/19/2012 - Pirate City Christmas Camp and Tournament Kevin is a fundamentally sound middle infielder with a quiet, hard-working demeanor. He showed some improvements since we last saw him beginning with his 60 yard dash. Defensively, his feet get him into the correct fielding position and his hands work properly out in front. Arm stroke is a little long and depending on how his arm develops, he may be better suited for the right side of the diamond. As he gets a little more mature and faster, we expect his range and footwork to improve as a MI. Offensively, he is athletic in his stance and puts the ball in play fairly consistently showing a short stride and good load. He needs to work to stay on the plane with his barrel as he tends to get a little bit uphill with his swing plane. He used the whole field in game at bats and showed some plate discipline. He also showed us a little more power than we saw a few months ago during his first workout. Kevin is a hard worker and is the type of player who takes coaching to hear and pays attention so that he can improve. He should continue to see improvements moving forward that are consistent with his overall gains in strength and athleticism.

11/10/2012 - Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (Commuter) (Ages 14-18) Kevin shows an extremely simple swing, with a square athletic set up, and a simple short stride and load. Kevin uses the body well during the swing and gets the whole back side into the swing, and does it with consistent smooth movements. Kevin also shows the ability to use his hands well during the swing, with good barrel delivery and great extension through contact. Kevin tends to start the swing before the front foot is down, which forces him to rush the swing or slow the swing down in order to make contact. He needs to focus on separating the stride and load from the swing, this will allow him to slow the process down and keep the hands back. When Kevin rushes he lets his hands get outside of the baseball, which will result in roll overs and getting jammed, if he can keep his hands and barrel inside the baseball he will be able to get the barrel to the ball better, and hit to all fields well.

10/07/2012 - College PREP - Mt. Laurel, NJ Kevin is a thin, athletic, SS who will graduate in 2014. Defensively, Kevin has fluid footwork, he presents his glove early, and his hands are playable. He has a clean exchange, and throws with a long arm action with consistency to his target. Playing lower, finishing his throws, and adding arm strength will help defense get better. Offensively, Kevin has a tall / square set-up, good balance, and he makes square contact. He has a level swing, a still head, and he gets his lower 1/2 through. Added bat speed and more lower 1/2 can spike hitting numbers.

09/29/2012 - Infield Accelerated Training Weekend (Commuter) (Ages 14-18) Kevin did an excellent job with us during the weekend. He displayed the ability to be a great shortstop, with a solid glove, and quick soft hands all over the field. Kevin also does an excellent job at attacking the baseball correctly. Some players tend to attack the baseball straight on, but Kevin does it while creating good angles, this allows him to cover the ground a shortstop needs to to be successful. Since Kevin plays on the left side of the infield he needs to work on his arm strength, this can be accomplished with a good long toss program in the off season, while also using a good band program. Also Kevin needs to focus on his back hand, at times he allowed his back hand to take him away from first base, making his throw longer and tougher on his arm. When fielding the back hand make sure to gain momentum towards first by playing through the back hand.

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).
