Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 1B/OFPosition Projection

07/15/2013 - College PREP - Plano, TX Merritt is a tall, solid 1B/OF that will graduate in 2014. Currently, he projects slightly better defensively in the OF. He takes proper routes / angles and works to get behind balls well, playing through with momentum to his target. At 1B, feet are active as he works to square balls up and displays clean hands. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to attack ground balls more, play through, and present hands more out front. Throws are accurate with life / carry as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. At the plate, Osment shows a balanced approach with rhythm. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Merritt has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with a lot of room to improve.

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.
