  • SSPosition Projection

05/25/2021 - 2021 BF National South Showcase Yahil has begun to establish himself as one of the top players in the 2023 class. Everything he does on the field looks easy and natural for him. His left-handed stroke is clean and balanced with surprising present power. The ball has real carry off his bat and that will only show up more often as he continues to mature. Defensively Yahil moves well at SS with soft, sure hands and a clean exchange and release. His rhythm and timing in the field is very good and it appears he always works himself into position to get the good hop. There is huge upside in this prospect that merits very close attention!

02/12/2021 - Baseball Factory Opening Day Classic (HS - East) Yahil is an athletic SS prospect who showed well during the Opening Day Classic. In the field, Yahil moves light on his feet with a quick first step. He gets into an athletic position and fields with sure hands. His exchange is clean and he gets rid of the ball quickly, making accurate throws with strong carry across the diamond (95mph raw arm velo). At the plate, this LHH shows an advanced approach through an open setup. He is fluid to load and works through a smooth swing, producing great gap to gap power. Overall, Yahil is a talented prospect who has the skill set to contribute at the next level.

01/15/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (FL) Yahil is a lean, athletic SS who has a tremendous future on the diamond. At SS, defensive abilities are at a pro level as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he attacks balls and plays through well with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate with carry (93 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick (86 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. With 2 years to further develop, Yahil has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches and pro scouts with his baseball abilities.

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).
