Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 2BPosition Projection

11/15/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) MJ showed at 2B and continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities with a promising future on the diamond. At 2B, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he works to square balls up but needs to attack, playing through more with his body. Glove action is soft / clean presents out front. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turn of the double play. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. At the plate, he continues to show as a switch hitter and how has improved, displaying similar abilities from both sides. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard.

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.
