Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 1B/RHPPosition Projection

08/04/2008 - College PREP - Cleveland, OH Mike shows as a two way player at 1B and on the mound. Arm strength is average and he does need to get on a strict long toss program to further develop more arm strength. Glove action is soft and solid. Foot speed is slow and he needs to play more aggressive with his feet in coming to get the baseball. He does show solid foot work on turning the double play. At the plate, Groff shows near average ability with average power. Swing path is level and he does show a feel for the barrel to the pull side. He does need some instruction and work on his approach and mechanics of the swing. On the mound, abilities are below average with his fastball and near average with his off speed. Changeup is his best pitch displaying a good feel with sinking action. He shows good separation / direction and keeps his eyes on his target. He currently does project best at 1B. Mike has abilities with a lot of room to improve.

01/25/2008 - Pre-Season Invitational Tournament - 2008 Groff has some two-way potential. At the plate, the ball got off his bat with good life at times - mostly thanks to an aggressive swing with some bat speed. Can improve his balance and weight transfer through contact to help him drive more balls, must get weight forward to help keep the barrel working through contact more out front. On the mound, his arm worked well and he topped out at 77 mph - two mph higher than we had seen before. His still can improve the athletic positions in his delivery, and can drive to the target better - both should help him generate more from his large frame. Improved his 60-yard dash, down from 8.10 to 7.95.

06/10/2007 - College PREP - Dublin (Columbus), OH Michael has a good body for an '09 grad. Showed the best as a 1B as he showed average ability in all areas. He showed an accurate arm with some carry to his ball. His throwing grade can improve if he becomes more fluid and uses his front side. Defensively, Michael is a little herky-jerky at times, but does have a good approach and average hands. As a pitcher, Groff needs some work with his mechanics, but mostly with his arm action. His grades would improve if he would work on having his arm work back instead of to the side.

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).
