  • 1B/RHPPosition Projection

06/19/2019 - National Tryout Plus - Charleston, WV Preston showed some hitting upgrades during his last workout with The Factory. He stands in the box squarely from the left side with good balance. He has active hands, works the middle of the field, and he works the ball gap to gap. At 1B, Preston keeps the ball in front of his body, he works around it well, and he gets rid of the ball quickly with consistency to his target. On the mound, Preston has a loose arm action and he keeps his eyes on target. He has good direction, a controlled landing toward home, and he is around the zone with his pitches.

03/02/2019 - Mid Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14) Preston is a coachable 1B prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Accelerated Training Weekend. At the plate, this LHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a short stride. He is fluid getting into his load and hits against a strong front side. He gets good extension through the ball with decent bat speed, leading to loud contact and line drives. Preston can improve as a hitter by continuing to add strength. With five more years to develop, Preston has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at Historic Dodgertown Preston is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect that made in game adjustments. At 1B, Preston makes the routine play and makes accurate throws. He needs to continue to present a low/early glove, be on time with his prep step, and anticipate the ball off the bat. Building arm strength through his throwing program and improving his first to the ball will improve his overall game. At the plate, Preston has an athletic stance, he attacks the inside part of the ball, and creates backside drive with his lower half. He needs to continue to get his front foot down on time, load his hands back into the drive position, and hunt the fastball. On the bump, Preston shows confidence in his fastball and attacks the zone. He separates on time, has a clean arm action, and works north to south in his delivery. He needs to continue to ride his back leg toward the plate and develop a secondary pitch such as a changeup. Preston has a high baseball IQ and we hope to see his progress in the future.

12/09/2018 - Interactive Video Program - Morgantown, WV Preston is a tall 1B prospect who will graduate in 2024. In the field, Preston fields in a square position and makes a clean exchange, working to keep his throws accurate to his target. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a tall stance and tracks the ball well. He takes a level swing and makes solid contact. Overall abilities can improve with work on the following.

1. Footwork to field
2. Lateral range
3. Field out in front
1. Square stride
2. Smoother load
3. Lower half drive

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.
