Scouting Report

4-11-18

Committed to Oregon State. Currently ranked No. 2 in the Colorado 2019 class. Bats and throws right. 
Showed good power from the right side when he homered in the first inning on an 0-2 pitch that he drove out to leftcenter.  He is very balanced at the plate and uses good hands to square the baseball and hits the ball hard to all fields.  Defensively he shows good hands, body position as well as arm strength. Boyd is hitting .429 on the season with 6 homeruns. 

2-25-18

6-foot-1, 185-pound right hand hitting SS/OF. Powerful hitter at the plate, stands wide and balanced.  Strong lower half with good weight transfer.  Swing is uphill and ball jumps off his bat.  Hit 3 balls out during the live round.  Hands whip through the zone with good extension out front.  Exit velocity was 92 mph.

Offensively, Justin Boyd singled twice and showed why he is one of the better sophomores in Colorado, he also showed great versatility when he started at ss and then was moved to cf when Kyle Cardona was done pitching, his actions show the athleticism to play both the infield and the outfield and will allow him to grow as a player.

1-29-17
6-foot, 170 pounds. Bats and throws right. Looks the part, and backs it up.  Appears to have put on about 10-15 pounds of muscle. Has a cool, confident aura without being cocky. At the plate he is balanced with a simple, fluent load of the hands and little/no stride. Bat speed is quick, and he laced line drives in his BP round. 89 mph exit velocity. Has the arm strength to stick at short, and the glove is advanced for his age. Bounces around with athletic quickness and makes plays to both sides with throws from all angles.  Ran a 4.28 home to first. 


8-8-15
5-foot-9, 140 pounds. Bats and throws right. Athletic looking prospect with lean frame. Has narrow slightly open tall stance. Hands start high and has slight leg kick. Hands move well to the ball. Gets good extension through zone and uses lower half well. Had 80 mph exit velocity off the tee. Right now is a line-drive gap hitter. Good bat speed for his age. Like his actions at SS. Gets in ready position and moves well to both sides. Has quick release and threw 75 mph across the diamond with accuracy. Ran a 7.60 60 time. Nice 2019 prospect to follow.
