Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • RHP/OFPosition Projection

12/27/2009 - Christmas Camp and Tournament #2 Mitchel is a young player that participated in Pirate City at both OF and on the mound. He currently projects better on the mound where he has good mound presence and pitchability. Mitchel works quick on the mound and is consistent with his mechanics. He throws a lot of strikes and with more extension and work on his CB, he has time to improve as he continues to grow and mature. In the OF, Mitchel has good arm strength for his age and he works to the ball well. With improved range and a quicker 1st step, Mitchel can further improve his defensive skills in the OF. Offensively, Mitchel has good balance and a tall back side. He is able to hit the ball to the opposite field but will need to avoid diving to the ball and opening his front side. Mitchel is a young player with a solid base of skills. We expect those skills to improve over the next couple of years with normal growth, maturity, and polish.

09/13/2009 - College PREP - Adrian (Detroit), MI Mitch is a young, 2012 graduate that shows as a two-way player on the mound plus in the OF with a solid frame. Foot speed is currently below average and he would benefit from getting on a speed / agility program to improve foot quickness and range for the next level. With that said, his feet are active in taking proper routes and angles in tracking down balls in the OF. He can improve on getting behind fly balls in the outfield to play through with more momentum to his target. He has life in his actions in the OF displaying slightly above average defensive abilities. Arm strength is solid average showing carry on his throws. He will benefit by getting on a strict long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength, raising velocities. At the plate, Claxton has slightly above average abilities with near above average power through a balanced approach. He has strength in his swing as the baseball jumps off his bat when centered. Power numbers will continue to increase as he learns to utilize his lower half more efficiently through the swing. Swing path gets uphill and he needs to work on hitting top half of the baseball. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 78-82 mph on a slight downhill plane creating tough angles on hitters. Off speed pitches are currently average to below average and need further development to be quality pitches at the next level. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with loose spin with occasional bite. With 3 years to further develop, Mitch has potential to be a solid player as he continues 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 (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).
