Cade continues to develop his overall game with improvements in arm strength, running speed and smoothing out his pitching mechanics. Active feet and a solid glove have followed him as he works to develop his defensive game. He was more sure of himself with being more aggressive to the ball but still needs to continue with a long toss program to strengthen his throwing arm. At the plate, as he continues to mature, he is gaining bat speed which is shown with improvments in his hitting and power hitting rankings. On the mound, Cade has worked on his mechanincs some and it is much more fluid and his command is getting better with all of his pitches.

Cade is a young (2013) two-way player at 2B plus on the mound with a thin, athletic frame that shows projection as he continues to physically mature, filling out. Defensively, feet are active as he works to keep balls in front but needs to be more aggressive in coming to get, playing through the baseball with feet / hands. Hands are soft, clean but deep at times. Throws are accurate as he will benefit by getting on a long toss program. Offensively, Campbell shows a balanced approach into a aggressive path with hands but has some mechanical flaws that are hindering him from reaching his full potential at the plate with grades improving quickly with instruction and adjustments. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 74-79 on a slight downhill plane. He needs to work on developing more quality off speed pitches. With 3 years to further develop, Cade has potential with time and room to improve.

On the mound, Cade improved his mechanics, contral and arm action from the previous evaluation. He showed clean and simple mechanics with good command of his offspeed - which again is an improvement from before. Offensively, Cade still has some work to do mechanically which will continue to improve with reps and overall strength and maturity. Defensively, he continues to improve but still needs to work on his overall footwork.
