Official Scouting Report

  • 5Class Rating
  • CPosition Projection

02/17/2019 - College PREP - Dallas, TX Sam is a solid, strong catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line through a quick transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 2.15 range with accuracy and zip (82 mph velocity) on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He tracks balls well and sticks balls in the zone and utilizes his body well through the blocking process, centering balls out front. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying well above average hitting abilities with outstanding power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (89 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball utilizing all fields, and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. Sam has an upside and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.

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.
