Kade continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his fastest 60 time to date, now a 7.32 runner. At 2B, he displays smooth fluid actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy on his throws. He will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing through a line drive approach. Mental makeup may be his best tool as he plays the game the right way.

Kade is a strong, athletic SS who will graduate in 2019. At SS, Kade has active pre pitch movement and shows good tempo when fielding the ball. He has great lateral range and gets into an athletic position to field the ball with soft hands. He shows a quick exchange and gains momentum well on his throws which allows them to carry through his target. At the plate, Kade sets up in an athletic stance and takes his stride on time. He is smooth getting into his load and he takes a level swing with extension through the zone. If he continues to drive his backside to the ball, Kade will become a more complete hitter. Overall, Kade is a talented prospect who has the potential to contribute at the next level.
