08/17/2008 - Under Armour All-America Game 2008 Mychal Givens has been on the radar of scouts for several years. Although known as a SS prospect early on, he is now a legitimate 2-way player who could be drafted as either a shortstop or a right-handed pitcher. In recent months, it seems that more teams like his future on the mound due to his electric arm. He throws a tailing FB from a low ' arm slot that jumps out of his hand and has touched as high as 97mph. He comfortably sits in the 92-95 range with a solid change as his second pitch and a sweeping breaking ball that he shows at times. If teams have interest in him on the mound, it is likely in the role of a closer or late inning reliever. As a position player, he shows off his plus arm at SS to go with sure hands. His athleticism is on display everywhere, though he is sometimes more style than substance. He has strength on his frame and a level swing that allows him to spray line drives to all fields. Some adjustments at the plate are necessary to see him as a productive offensive player at the highest level in the future. Overall, Givens is a premium athlete that will garner interest at both positions this spring and should receive first round consideration. Drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2nd round of the 2009 MLB Draft. Currently a reliever with the Orioles.

06/03/2007 - Under Armour Southeast Tournament 2007 - Scouting Mychal is a superb athlete. He is tall and thin with plenty of room to fill out. His hands defensively are way above average as is his range. Arm is ++ with loose athletic actions. Scouts who have seen him on the mound put his velocity in the low to mid 90's at times. Offensively, Givens shows that he can hit the ball the other way with pop and will stretch any sure double into triple with his above average speed. Still young, Givens will be watched closely by scouts during the next two years.

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).
