Official Scouting Report

  • 1B/3BPosition Projection

09/12/2009 - E-ACR - Maryland 8 Taylor improved to a Class 2 after an excellent workout. He improved every facet of his game. At the plate, showed an effortless swing with excellent power. Demonstrated the ability to keep hands inside ball with level swing thru zone. Centered every ball and they exploded off the barrel as he put on a show during BP with lots of home runs. Utilized lower half properly as he held his ground. At 1B, good athletic actions allowed him to demonstrate good range. Fielded ball out front with sure hands and played thru them aggressively. Balls had lots of life out of hand with good carry. Had proper footwork around the bag and showed the ability to pick balls.

07/12/2009 - Team One South 2009 Taylor continues to show above-average power at the plate and improved his 60-time. At 1B, showed athletic actions as he took decent angles to get in front of the ball. Hands and feet worked well together as he aggressively played thru balls. Had loose arm action on throws for DP. Would like to see him field ball little more out front. At the plate, had a compact swing that was level thru the hitting zone. Generated good bat speed that allowed him to hit line drives all over the field. At times, his front side spins open which made him pull-off balls. When he stays back to let ball travel, he utilizes his lower half

01/16/2009 - Under Armour Preseason All America - 2009 Taylor continues to show steady play in his baseball abilities. He shows well above average power at the plate as the baseball jumps off his bat when centered. Hands are quick and direct, generating plus bat speed through the swing. Foot speed is slightly average and does need to get on a speed / agility program to improve foot quickness for the next level. Arm strength continues to shine but does need to stay on a strict long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength. Hinshaw has an upside at the plate and will catch the eyes of the college coaches with his abilities.

07/05/2008 - Team One South 2008 During the event, Taylor improved his arm, hitting, and power grade. At the plate, had a quiet and balanced approach. Swing was easy with a level path to the hitting zone. Was able to hit the ball to all fields with some pop. Pushed his hands back for a load, showed a high back elbow, and then cut off his swing instead of extending thru. At 1B, kept his body in-line to throw and ball had good life and carry. Made all the routine plays with proper footwork around the bag. Needs to be a little more aggressive when fielding ball instead of staying back. Quicker feet will help improve range and lateral movement.

06/01/2008 - College PREP - Atlanta, GA Taylor is a young player with height and a solid build. At 1B, Taylor shows soft hands that can pick it in the dirt. He moves his feet well and turns the double play. He just makes plays despite fielding the ball deep. At the plate, Taylor has bat speed and excellent barrel contact. Balls jump off his bat and he has power to all fields. He is an above average hitter. Taylor has plenty of potential as he gets bigger and stronger.

01/11/2008 - Under Armour Pre-Season All-America - 2008 Taylor is a young athletic 1B that has time to fill out with the appropriate physical training. At 1B, does a good job of pick all short hops and ground balls. Showed proper footwork around bag but needs to improve onn agility. Would like to see him come get ball instead of ball coming to him. Long toss will help improve arm strength which will improve life and carry. At the plate, generate good bat speed with the use of his quick wrists. Would like to see improve his strike zone awareness. Did not use any of his lower half throughout the swing.

12/27/2007 - Christmas Camp and Tournament - 2007 Hinshaw is a talented young offensive player. His approach is advanced for his age, and he showed advanced power to the opposite field as well. His move through contact was highlighted by good balance and bat speed, allowing him to make a full move out front to drive through the ball. Ability to use the whole field, and to make hard contact doing it, is impressive. Defensive ability at first base was solid, as was his arm action. Has room to improve arm strength. Overall, an offensive prospect with potential to play either first base or even possibly develop behind the plate.

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).
