01/12/2018 - 2018 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Valen continues to showcase his tools, solidifying himself as a power hitting 3B prospect in the 2018 class. An easy fielder, he excels defensively at 3B (used to project as a SS) with a lot of position versatility. Takes good angles, has a great glove and fires the ball across the diamond (89 arm velocity). Mixed with very good offensive prowess, he adds to his value. Very athletic in the setup, had quick and loose hands to stay inside the ball and create a lot of bat speed, Valen stings baseballs. Registering a bat exit velocity of 94mph, he explodes his weight through the ball and shows real gap to gap power.

07/26/2017 - Under Armour Southwest Championships 17U, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Valen is a coachable INF prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Under Armour Southwest Championships 17U. In the field, Valen shows fluid footwork and centers the ball in the middle of his body. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front of his body. He has a quick exchange and gains momentum well on his throws which allows them to consistently carry through his target. He projects best at 3B while also having the ability to play the corner OF spots. At the plate, Valen sets up in an atheltic stance and shows good center balance in the box. He is smooth getting into his load and leads well with his lower half. He takes a direct swing with explosive bat speed which leads to square contact and solid pop driving the ball from gap to gap. Valen showed quality at bats during the event including one 2B and one 3B. Overall, Valen is a talented prospect who has the skill set that will translate well to the next level.

06/03/2017 - 2017 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National West Valen continues to show a promising future on the diamond. At SS, he has plus lateral range, working from the ground-up with smooth actions. Transfer is quick as he fires strong throws zipping across the diamond. At the plate - he has strong/centered balance with fluid rhythm to load. He takes an absolute hack - crushing the ball to the deep parts of the park (exit velocity = 85 mph). Valen has the tools that will play at a very high level and make an immediate impact.

02/04/2017 - College PREP - Parker (Denver), CO Valen is a strong, athletic SS prospect with loud tools and lots of ability on the field. He shows advanced instincts at the plate with feel for the barrel and an idea of how to use the whole field effectively. His load and stride are powerful and on time to be ready to launch through the zone. He generates fast bat speed with a strong lower half as he works on a level path to the ball to make consistent line drive contact to all fields, with extension on his finish. At short, he has fluid, athletic actions that afford him extended range to both sides as he surrounds the ball to field. He plays through the ball to gain momentum to his target and show very quick hands to exchange and release and throw accurately to his target. Working on presenting his hands steadily out front is the final step to becoming a complete shortstop. Valen is a very exciting prospect who we expect to see at the next level.

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).
