Official Scouting Report

  • Position Projection

06/03/2017 - 2017 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National West Preston is a super talented outfield prospect who has a high ceiling with above average skill offensively and defensively. As a left-handed hitter, Preston has an athletic, square setup with a centered balance. He has smooth rhythm with a good load and on-time, square stride. Preston has explosive bat speed with a direct swing path and strength behind his barrel. He gets good extension at contact to produce hard, consistent contact with the ball jumping off his bat. Preston has plus power and the ability to drive the ball to each gap with home run potential. In the outfield, Preston plays with fluid, active footwork taking the correct angles to cover a large territory in each direction laterally. He plays with rhythm and presents his glove as he fields the ball in an athletic position. Preston has a clean exchange leading into a loose arm action throwing from a 3/4 arm slot. He plays with good momentum through the baseball and his throws are online with good carry at 92 MPH. Overall, Preston is a 5 tool prospect who can be a difference maker at the next level.

09/24/2016 - 2016 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures West At the Under Armour Futures West event Preston showcased once of the most sought-after tools available - left-handed power. In batting practice he showed rhythm in his bat waggle load and the ability to find the barrel. His stroke had leverage pull power and he lofted several balls off the net high above the right field wall. He has the rare type of power that he can slightly mis-hit a ball and it can still carry out of the park. As a defender Preston got good reads and took solid angles to the ball. His 6.86 speed in the 60 and 85 mph arm strength came into play allowing him to close on balls and throw to all bases with carry. Overall this USC commit has the type of LH power that can change games with one swing of the bat.

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).
