10/08/2014 - Arizona Senior Fall Classic Zimmerman continues to show as a RHP/1B with solid play at both positions. Delivery is easy / repeatable, allowing his arm action to work quick and free to the plate. Fastball showed in the low 80 mph range with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with tight spin and gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for with arm side run. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as more arm strength is developed through a long toss program. At 1B, feet are active as he shows proper foot work around the bag and is a quality receiver. He displays soft / clean / sure hands and consistently shows the ability to pick balls out of the dirt, saving throws. At the plate, he shows a squared setup with balance. Hands are quick and through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel and makes consistent hard contact, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to keep hands inside the ball to use all fields and create more extension through contact. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, is very coachable, and works hard to be the best player he can be.

05/18/2014 - College PREP - Bel Air (Baltimore), MD Zimmerman continues to show as RHP/1B but currently projects best at 1B where he has really improved his baseball abilities.

08/05/2013 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 Zimmerman showed on the mound and at 1B for the first time at the event. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date; topping out at 80 mph. Fastball showed a range of 78-80 mph with arm side run on a downhill plane.

02/24/2013 - College PREP - Mechanicsburg (Harrisburg), PA Tony is a tall, 2-way player who pitches and catches. On the mound, Tony has a loose arm, eyes on target, and his balance point is controlled. He has good direction toward home, his off-speed are solid, and he finishes completely. More level shoulders and finishing off his pitches will spike mound effectiveness. Behind the plate, Tony has soft / sure hands, playable feet, and he holds a low target. He deadens the ball when blocking, his exchange is clean, and he throws with a long arm action to 2nd base. Catching will get better if Tony can quicken his feet, widen his base, and add arm strength. Offensively, Tony has a square set-up, good balance, and average bat speed. He makes hard contact, uses all fields, and gets his lower 1/2 through. More aggressiveness, better timing, and added lower 1/2 will spike hitting tool grades.

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).
