6-foot, 170 pound wiry frame. Athletic. Does a lot of things well on the field. Intriguing two-way guy. Right-handed hitter produces some natural lift with swing path. Present gap power that he flashed with a triple in game play. Posted a 4.41 home to first base time, 87 mph exit velocity off the tee. Good hands and arm strength defensively at 83 across the diamond. Shows good lateral movement and quick release.
Intriguing on the mound with clean arm action. Works the bottom half of the zone and will elevate fastball with two strikes. Occasional arm-side run on 83-84 mph fastball. Sharp downer curveball at 73 mph is effective. Has feel for 72-76 mph changeup with fastball arm speed. Scales has established himself as one of the top players in the 2022 class.
