Bickford is previously drafted by the Blue Jays but didn't sign then he went to Cal State Fullerton but transferred to College of Southern Nevada to make himself eligible to this year's draft. He is a tall, lanky guy with room to add 10-20 lbs more. He stands on the mound on the first base side of the rubber and he starts his delivery with a step simple step on the side to start his rhythm then and his leg kick is pretty wide but it is okay which makes him pretty balanced on the mound. The problem that I see is that on the height of his leg kick, his left foot is facing south which can contribute to control problems sometimes. He got a drop-and-drive delivery with above-average to plus extension at the plate (in which I'll guess to be at 6'8") thanks to his really long legs which causes his pitches to seem to arrive a bit faster (perceived velocity) than the regular velocity. There are a few noticeable changes on his delivery. First is that his elbow placement when he's still pitching in HS or in Fullerton is pretty high, similar to Masahiro Tanaka (image here.) which is pretty dangerous but when he's pitching in CSN, his elbow is now considerably lower and doesn't show anymore the inverted V which is good. Second is that his arm slot is now more of a true 3/4 release than his sidewinder release point in HS and in Fullerton. He lands closed and he finishes his delivery in a north-south path which is good but he finishes his delivery in a pretty bad fielding position due to the energy generated by his delivery but for me, it's not much of a concern.
P.S. The grades are my own grades about the players when they reach their true ceilings. All similarities on the grades of other websites are coincidental but I researched a lot from several draft sites and videos together with my own hunches to build my own scouting report. I hope you enjoyed it.
