01/13/2017 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament The quick-twitch McLain is fun to watch play the game. He plays hard and fast, with an impressive set of tools to allow him to excel. His right-handed swing is quick and compact with good plane. He utilizes the entire field - driving hard line drives in all directions. As a defender he uses his quick feet to get himself into good position on routine balls and to extend his range when necessary. He has plus arm strength across the diamond allowing him to finish plays well. This UCLA commit can impact the game in a number of ways.

09/24/2016 - 2016 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures West Matt is a dynamic athlete with some of the loudest tools in the 2018 class. He has plus arm strength (96 mph) and is a plus runner (6.58 in the 60), and both are useable. His quick first step leads to excellent range and he can finish plays from any part of the infield with his arm. He presents the glove early and moves through balls well. As you would expect he plays low and athletic at all times. As a hitter Matt has an aggressive approach with a simple, short stroke. His present strength leads to lots of hard contact - the ball comes off with authority. He doubled at the event and is constantly putting pressure on the defense. Overall, this is the type of player that can impact the game in numerous ways and is a prospect to follow closely.

07/20/2015 - 2015 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National West Matt McLain is a very projectable sophomore SS that can really play. The 5'9/155 lbs R/R middle infielder has a subtle glove and all the smooth/quality actions you look for in an everyday guy. He was light on his feet and got to balls, making even tough plays look routine with present life to throw. At the plate, he was simple to hit with a solid base and hip/hand coordination. He displayed excellent bat whip through the zone with loose hands and extension out in front. He collected a single and double in his 5 ab's and moved well down the line at a 4.45. Overall - look out for this to be a name with a lot of buzz around the game.

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 (tools), 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, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
