USA Baseball 17U Championships Max brings his high level tools and athleticism to the field every day and did show in the OF for the first time at the event. He is natural and quick twitch in all that he does on the field. He has rhythm in his right-handed swing and he generates tremendous bat speed with very little effort. The ball comes off the bat hard (92 mph exit velocity) and he has advanced eye/hand coordination that allows him to square up balls with regularity. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind and plays through with momentum to his target. Arm strength is at a pro level with throws displaying accuracy and on line zip to his target and threw out a runner at the plate. On the mound, he continues to shine. Fastball showed a range of 86-89 mph with late life. Slider is an outstanding pitch with tight spin and late / downward break. Control is a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches and attacks hitters. Mental makeup is outstanding as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be. He has a ton of upside and possesses the skill set that will play at a very high level and possible 2021 draft guy.

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).
