Scouting Video: Justin Williams, OF, Terrabonne HS (2013 Draft)

September 26, 2012

Justin Williams is probably the guy most scouts would tell you flashed the most offensive potential of any player at the Petco Game. I’d tell you the same thing. He’s just a baby and you can dream big grades on power production numbers. He’s not a burner but he runs enough for a corner and maybe you can squeak an average run grade out of him, from time to time, in the coming years, as he gets stronger. He’s got the length for it. Arm is just a shade below average, should play up to average. The big park tells you a lot. I don’t want any mail saying I’m dissing the arm. To me, a 45 and a 50 are still too different things, a 4 is not a 5 just because there are so few 5 outfield arms anymore. From the BP film, he looks a little Klesko-ish to me. Hands work, likes to murder high mistakes, but showed he could control the bat against hard sink in the game. So, all in all, that’s a pretty good package, the kind of guy you say, as a scout, well “even if I don’t get the guy, he was worth the drive to see.”
