Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • OFPosition Projection

07/18/2017 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Simms continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He reads balls well off the bat and works to get behind balls but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an uphill swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

04/15/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Hattiesburg, MS Simms is a strong, OF/1B who will graduate in 2021. In the OF, he takes active routes/angles as he tracks down fly balls. He fields GB's in an athletic position and comes up with a quick/clean exchange to throw. Over at 1B, he shows good footwork around the bag as he takes quick angles to his backhand side. He gives accurate DP feeds and fires throws that carry to his target. Offensively with the stick, Simms sets up square in the box and strides short to the ball. He swings on a direct bat path as he drives pitches with pull side pop. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.

Infield
1. Lateral range
2. Develop soft hands/glove
3. Smooth exchange to throw
Outfield
1. Use 2 hands to help with exchange 
2. Stay behind the fly ball
3. Play through 
Offense
1. Develop a load
2. Develop rhythm 
3. Lower 1/2 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 (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).
