11/03/2018 - 2018 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures Texas Luke is a powerful backstop with a tremendous future on the diamond. With flexion and good sway he pockets pitches with a soft/sure mitt. Pop times are in the 1.98 range as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with zip (86 mph velocity) on his throws. At the plate, he has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation. Barrel is whipped (84 mph exit velocity) through the zone as he connects with strength. The ball jumps off of his barrel as he crushes it to the gaps. A talented prospect, he will make things happen both behind the dish as well as with the bat.

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).
