02/25/2017 - College PREP - Sioux Falls, SD Kade is a long, lean (6'1”, 160lbs) two-way prospect who is slightly more advanced as a shortstop than a pitcher. He has head turning pop at the dish with the ability to hit for extra bases and will continue to show even more power as he matures physically. He is fluid in the box to get to a powerful launch position and explode through the zone with fast bat speed. He stays on plane to the ball and extends through contact to hit the ball square and drive it gap to gap. On the bump, he has a quick arm from a 3/4 arm slot that creates deception to the hitter. He features a three pitch mix including a tailing fastball up to 82mph, a late breaking, 11-5 curve and a change into the mid 70's. Staying direct to the plate through his finish will lead to better control moving forward. At short, he shows the trademark quick hands of a middle infielder, turning great DP's and getting rid of the ball in no time to get runners. His range is extended to both sides as he uses his athleticism and fluid feet to get to everything hit his way. Kade is an exciting prospect who looks the part of a player at the next level.
