Behind the plate he is a smooth receiver who shows an adept feel for handling velocity and spin with a soft hand and strong wrists. He has good mobility in his hips allowing him to set up low, but also with the quickness to block and move laterally behind the plate. Featuring a strong arm with above average accuracy on his throws his 1.97 in game pop time is a weapon behind the plate where he will stick at the college level. At the plate his swing has the ability to use all fields for hard contact, but shows power to the gaps with strength in his hands through contact and good use of his lower half for bat speed.

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).
