I just don't think BA gets at that information, nor do I think teams would share much of it for public consumption.
The tools aren't going to change much from a scout seeing someone 5-10 times or them playing 40 games against better competition. Your arm is your arm regardless of who you are playing. Your speed is your speed. Your range is your range. Your bat speed is your bat speed. Your instincts and hands in the field are the same.
