01/15/2010 - Under Armour Preseason All-America - 2010 Travis participated in the UA Preseason All-America and showed similar skills as he did in 10/09. In the middle INF, Travis moves around athletically, and shows good hands and feet. He makes plays on balls hit his way, and throws accurately across the diamond. Travis is a scrappy player that works hard, gives max effort, and has good baseball instincts. Defensive skills can improve if Travis can work to attack the ball more aggressively and play through it. Offensively, Travis has good balance and bat speed. He has a level swing, good barrel accuracy, and he can hit to all fields. Looser actions, a more proper load, and added physical strength should help Travis improve his hitting grades even further.

10/14/2009 - Arizona Senior Fall Classic - 2009 Travis continues to show consistency with his baseball skills. In the INF, had excellent footwork which allowed him to have above-average range. Took proper angles as he fielded ball out front and played thru aggressively. Did a very good job with feeds and turns on DP. At the plate, demonstrated good strike zone discipline as he tracked the ball. Had a line drive approach as he hit balls to all fields with above-average bat speed. As his hands are high during load, creates good direct bat path to hitting zone.

07/29/2009 - Under Armour Southwest Regional Tournament - 2009 Travis had good instincts and make-up during games as he improved his fielding grade. At SS, showed good athleticism and skills to play the position at the next level. Had active feet and took very good 1st step when fielding ball. Stayed low to field ball out front and had loose arm action with accurate throws. At the plate, solid hitting approach allowed him to use all fields. Did a very good job of hitting the ball to opposite field. Kept hands and barrel through baseball at contact where he demonstrated gap power as he went 5-13 at the plate.

06/20/2009 - Omaha Pro Select Training and Tournament - Week 2 Travis continues to show steady improvement in his baseball abilities. He showed well in the IF as he continuously made plays. His hands and feet work well together through the fielding and throwing process. At the plate, Kinder shined as well. He showed an aggressive approach with solid balance. Hands load well and work inside the baseball, utilizing all fields as he shows a great feel for the barrel. He keeps his hands and barrel through the baseball at contact with the ball jumping off when centered. He was 3 for 10 with 2B at the event. Foot speed continues to shine and he utilized his quick, athletic feet well on the bases. Travis will draw a lot of interest from the collegiate coaches with his abilities and the way he plays the game.

05/22/2009 - E-ACR - Maryland 1 Travis had an outstanding workout since he improved his hitting, power, and fielding grades. At SS, showed excellent footwork with good hands. Was aggressive to balls with the ability to field out front and play through ball. Moved well laterally and made all plays. Showed a very good DP pivot that was quick. Followed his flips on DP feeds. Had good loose arm action on accurate throws to 1B. Stringent long toss program will improve velocity. At the plate, proper pre-pitch load allowed him to utilize his quick hands. Had good gap-to-gap power. Carry on ball will improve when he levels swing out a little which will help eliminate top spin.

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).
