Official Scouting Report

  • OFPosition Projection

12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City Riley showed solid offensive abilities and good overall actions during Pirate City. At the plate, Riley has a good base, he stays back on the ball well, and he flashes good bat speed. He is a patient, 2 strike hitter with great balance, and he stays inside the ball well. He had a couple of clutch hits during the tournament as well. Working to use all fields more and staying on the ball longer will help his already good hitting scores improve. In the OF, Riley has good quickness, he gets in a solid ready position, and his hands are sure. He is aggressive to the ball and throws with fluid actions to his target. Playing lower to the ground, especially on ground balls, is an area he can work on. Riley is a very attentive player and is all around very solid. He will make a great addition to a college program in a couple of years.

07/22/2013 - College PREP - Riverdale (Washington DC), MD Riley is a smooth swinging OF with all-around solid skills. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup and good bat angle. He has smooth rhythm, getting into a loaded position and swings with good bat speed. He squares the ball up consistently and hits line-drives with the ability to use the whole field. In the OF, he maintains quick footwork and moves well laterally to balls hit into the gaps. He works from the ground-up and plays through the ball well. Continuing to increase his arm strength will help velocity to rise and will aid his OF play. As a rising junior, Riley has a solid skill-set and will only continue to improve.

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.
