Official Scouting Report

  • RHP/SSPosition Projection

07/04/2018 - Under Armour Firecracker Classic 18U, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Payton continues to show as a prospect on the diamond. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. He shows good tempo through a strong balance point and creates deception. Fastball showed a range of 80-82 mph with sinking action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break and shows a good feel for pitch. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. At the event, he had 2 solid outings and made good adjustments. He shows good mound demeanor and maintains composure. Stock on the mound will continue to increase as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program At SS, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up but needs to attack and play through balls more. Glove action is soft and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers ground. At the plate, he shows an athletic / squared setup with rhythm. Hands are quick (88 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. Working to get stride foot down sooner will aid in improving hitting grade. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.

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.
