Bernie on the Scene: Scouting Readers' Favorite Players

This article is part of our Bernie on the Scene series.

I am going to change my original plan of prospect profiles/scouting reports and offer reports on players requested by my readers.

I won't be able to respond to all requested players. If I haven't seen or watched video on the player, I won't write a report.

Scouting grades are for offense only. They do not include any defensive abilities and tools.

Scouting Grades:

55 - A better than average performer, less subject to platoon

60 - An every day player with occasional All Star Game appearances and multiple tools
