Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • OF/LHPPosition Projection

10/06/2019 - College PREP - Spokane, WA Merit is a lean, athletic OF/LHP who has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, defensive abilities are well above average as he displays smooth / fluid actions. He utilizes his feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves his foot quickness. At the plate he continues to shine, through a crouched setup. Hands are quick and work to and through a short / direct / level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 71 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball sits from 62-66 mph with 1/7 shape with gradual break. Changeup sits from 56-57 with arm side run. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. He can improve as a pitcher by long tossing to build up his arm strength. With 2 years to further develop, Merit has a lot of potential with time and room to continue to progress his 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 (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).
