01/18/2013 - 2013 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament
Kacy continues to stay on the radar as a top prospect for this years Senior Class. On the mound at the Pre-Season All-America, he struck out 6 of 10 batters he faced with his devastating curve-ball being his out pitch. He found himself getting ahead early with a lot of first pitch strikes, which allowed him to throw his breaking stuff effectively. At first base, his sure hands and active footwork make him a smooth and fluid defender. Offensively, the left handed swinger has an athletic/open stance and gets good extension with his on-plane swing path. In all, we look forward to tracking Kacy's senior year and his promising career to follow.

Along with the obvious ML bloodlines, Clemens has room to fill out his 6-foot-2 200 pound frame. He is a two-way talent, with low 90s velocity on the mound and the combo of a good 1B glove and solid left handed stroke. His delivery very much resembles that of his father, with the overhead move of the hands and pause/sink move on the back leg. His fastball was up to 90 this short outing, and he showed feel for a 12-6 curve in the low 70s. He has room to grab more snap out front with improved extension and finish. His defensive actions are athletic at 1B, he moves well into position to play the ball and around the bag. At the plate, his left handed stroke is flat and he drives the ball from gap to gap. He is more projectable on the mound, both in terms of physical maturity and improvements to his extension and finish.
