  • SS/RHPPosition Projection

07/24/2015 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 Sam is a hard worker who showed well during his time at Pirate City. At SS, he has quick footwork and hustles to the GB. He has athletic actions, funnels smoothly and has a clean exchange to throw. Working lower (from the ground-up) will help to improve his skills at SS. With the bat, Sam shows a balanced approach with a solid base. He swings on a level path and drives the ball on a line. Relaxing/loosening his grip will allow for more bat whip / bat speed which will result in increased pop off of the barrel. On the mound, Sam works to a tall balance point and has smooth separation. He works quickly and drives off of the rubber. FB now tops out at 72 mph while curveball has 11/5 shape with good depth. He hides the ball well which keeps hitters off balance. Finishing with more extension on his follow through will help to improve effectiveness on all pitches. A 2019 grad - Sam still has a lot of time to develop and grow in the game.

He shows off his athletic abilities on his as he attacks balls while playing through well. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he continues to increase foot quickness and presents hands more out front. Throws display accurate as he gets rid of the baseball quickly but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate he shows an athletic setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path through an aggressive approach. He works to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more efficiently. At the event, he was 3 for 9. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 63-64 mph. Breaking ball displaying 11/5 shape late sharp bite. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel but needs to develop more movement on pitch. Control is a plus as he throws strikes with all pitches, pounding the zone. Stock on mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and develops another off speed pitch. Mental makeup is a plus as he plays with a lot of energy and is very coachable, working hard to be the best player he can be with a promising future on the diamond.

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).
