Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • CPosition Projection

07/08/2018 - College PREP - Portland, OR Max is an athletic C graduating in 2020. Behind the plate, Max shows quick feet that allow him to get to his knees quickly to block. He displays an athletic fielding position as he presents his hands early, sticks pitches and makes quick exchanges. He throws with a short 3/4 arm action and releases the ball quickly. Max can improve behind the plate by implementing a throwing progression to improve arm strength and throwing accuracy. At the plate, Max shows a quiet line drive, gap-to-gap approach with good mechanics. He has an open set up with an on-time stride and a good load. Rhythm is fluid as he keeps his balance center and stays through with his lower half. He shows fast bat speed through a short, direct swing path and makes consistently hard contact with the ball. Max can improve at the plate by letting the ball get deeper and by keeping his hands inside. Max is a very talented player with a lot of upside. With more development to his game, he can play at the next level and make an impact.

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.
