Official Scouting Report

  • Position Projection

09/19/2015 - 2015 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures East Melendez is an exceptionally talented defensive catcher with potentially unrivaled catch & throw skills in the 2017 class. He posted release times between 1.75 and 1.85 from a traditional release, and was in the low 1.9 range from his knees. His throws had life through the bag following a super quick transfer. He sat very low to receive and showed strong & sure hands to receive along with ability to get down and block balls in the dirt. At the plate, he triggered his swing with a high knee lift and some bat wrap, but he had rhythm to the action and was able to accelerate his hands and wrists to the zone. The route is a little long with the barrel, but he appears to have good enough hands to make it work.

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).
