Cayden is an athletic and talented 2022 utility prospect. In the OF, Cayden is on time with his prep step, anticipates the ball off the bat, and creates angles to the ball. He is aggressive on ground balls and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing to the plate. At SS, Cayden presents a low/early glove, and fields the ball in front of his body. He has good footwork on double plays and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing across the diamond. At the plate, Cayden starts in a squared stance and loads his hands back. He keeps the barrel on plane and shows the ability to create pull side lift. Cayden will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
