Jordon Banfield
Arizona Scouting Director

Throughout the year PBR will put the spotlight on a number of uncommitted prospects who show the necessary tools to play at the next level. 2019 Mason Skaugrud from Sandra Day O'Connor HS performed well at the Preseason All-State Games and has stood out this spring as part of a loaded O'Connor lineup. We are excited to see more from him this summer. As always, contact [email protected] or direct message @PBRArizona on Twitter with any questions and/or commitment information.

Scouting Report

1/28/18 - Lean 6-foot-3, 175-pound frame with plenty of room to add needed strength/mass. Shows advanced swing with feel to find the barrel in live game action against quality arms. Hits from tall, slightly open setup, creating good separation and staying behind the baseball through contact. Shows solid pop for current level of physical strength; 84 mph exit velocity. Has a chance to be an above average defender at 1B with advanced footwork and softness in hands. Playable arm; 77 mph infield velo. Could be a prospect who gets faster as he gets stronger; 7.74 60-yard dash.

11/12/17 - Continues to show hitting ability from both sides of the plate and will help someone at the next level when his body matures. Can drive the baseball to all fields and should develop more power as he gets stronger. Solid actions at first base.

10/29/17 – Lean 6-foot-3, 175-pound frame with room to add strength/mass. Switch hitter, is more advanced from left side where he shows a loose, easy rhythm and the ability to consistently barrel the baseball to all fields. Hits from a narrow, relaxed setup with lower hands and a short stride. Hitting ability is evident and raw power should improve with increased physical strength; 86 mph exit velocity. Typically plays 1B and handles the position well, but worked out at catcher on this day as he tries to increase defensive versatility. Turned in a best pop time of 2.12.
