  • CPosition Projection

06/18/2021 - Baseball Factory All-State Tournament (HS) Ricardo continues to show shine on the diamond. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 2.25 range with accuracy and carry (80 mph velocity) on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He shows a squared setup and presents a soft mitt out front and utilizes his body through the blocking process but needs to work to get body down sooner to center out front. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact and stays inside the ball through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.

04/25/2021 - All-In Membership - Midland, TX Ricardo is a 2021 C/OF. Primary catcher. Easy sit with a good secondary stance. Beats ball to spot, working thumb under, and presents nice target for pitchers to throw to. Creates solid blocking angles allowing him to keep balls in front and slowing the run game down. Accurate/online throws from a high 3/4 arm slot with an arm velocity of 80mph and pop time of 2.2. Medium frame athletic build with strength present. Secondary OF, starts with active feet in the outfield. Good reads off bat allow him to flip his hips and go get fly balls. Creates good ground ball angles as he fields the ball out in front and works behind/through it. Clean exchange with accurate and online throws into the infield at 80mph. Right-handed hitter, hits from an athletic and open stance. Quickness to hands, with a strong top hand, and good balance through contact. Short/direct path and proper extension through contact. Square contact and ability to spray balls to all field a bat exit velocity of 85mph. With continued growth and development, we foresee him having the opportunity to play at the next level.

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).
