  • OFPosition Projection

07/25/2018 - Under Armour Southwest Championships 17U, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Tafton continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and he is a top prospect on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a superior 6.50 runner. In the OF, defensive abilities are outstanding as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Range is a plus as reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy and zip (88 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick (92 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable, and plays the game hard.

03/18/2018 - College PREP - Kannapolis (Charlotte), NC Tafton is an athletic and talented 2019 OF prospect. In the OF, Tafton has an active prep step and works behind the ball. He fields the ball in an athletic position and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing to the bases. At the plate Tafton has a closed stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He has smooth pre-pitch movement, keeps as quiet head, and attacks the inside part of the ball. Tafton will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

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.
