11/07/2008 - Dodgertown Select Training - 2008 Hill lowered his 60-yard dash again, this time from 8.00 down to 7.94. At the plate, he hit from a good base and showed good hands - got some extension through contact. Defensively, his feet worked well around the first base bag. Can work to improve his hands and glove action on balls in the dirt. On the mound, his fastball was 73-76 and he did a good job of staying around the zone with it. His breaking ball was 56-63, but was not thrown with the same arm speed as his fastball - an improvement here will help tighten up the spin and action on this pitch.

07/17/2008 - Cape Cod Training 2008 - Week 2 Hill lowered his 60-yard dash, down from 8.12 to 8.00. He showed strong wrists and forearms at the plate, and the ball got off his bat with good life. He also showed good eye-hand coordination, giving him a chance to hit. Can improve the rhythm in his approach to hit, and needs to work to track the ball better. A decision on whether to switch hit or focus on one side is likely necessary, choosing the natural side and working at it along with help speed his development. Defensively, he was a good target at first base. Can work to get his glove more out front, and really needs to commit to becoming a better defensive player. On the mound, he topped at 76 and did a good job of keeping the ball down in the zone. His delivery was balanced, and he finished well out front. Can work to relax his throwing wrist and arm, and to keep his front side closed better.

05/18/2008 - College PREP - San Antonio, TX Matthew is a tall lefty with plenty of time to improve. On the mound, Matthew shows that he can keep his off speed pitches down in the zone. He needs to work on increasing balance and body control to help with overall accuracy. Also he needs to become a little stronger with his glove side arm to help increase torque. At 1B, Matthew moves his feet well during the play and has good footwork around the bag. He tends to field the ball deep but he made some nice plays during the workout. At the plate, Matthew is a solid hitter from both sides. From the left, his swing is level and takes a nice path to the ball. He should work on his timing and rhythm from the left side. From the right, Matthew has some pop to the pull side and good barrel accuracy. Overall, Matthew needs some fine tuning to increase his ratings.

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).
