Scouting Report

1-29-17
5-foot-10, 185 pounds. Bats left throws right. The PBR Colorado staff came away really impressed with Best's offensive potential. Showed off quick, powerful hands from the left side. Frame is still developing, but he is already a strong big swing that doesn’t get cheated. Open stance with a big dive, but hands are quick enough to make up for the dive. 82 mph exit velocity but bat speed played faster in live round. Behind the plate, everything looked the part and he was consistently 2.15 with every throw on the bag. Footwork and transfer were smooth, and he will be under a 2.0 in the next couple of years. He also received very well with a wide base and soft hands.
