01/25/2014 - Interactive Video Program - Honolulu, HI Kade is a switch-hitting 2-way player as a SS/RHP. Offensively, he shows a little better from the right side. He remains balanced throughout his swing and delivers the barrel on a level path. He squares the ball up and hits line-drives. At SS, Kade shows all-around smooth actions as he works to get into position behind the ground ball. He fields the ball cleanly and works in-line toward 1B. On the bump, he has a 3-pitch mix as he fills up the zone and throws strikes. He works downhill and in-line toward the dish and finishes well. FB tops out at 59 mph while breaking ball has tight rotation. Overall abilities will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Pre-pitch footwork 2. Quicken transfer Offense 1. Extension 2. Lower 1/2 drive Pitching 1. Arm strength 2. Stride/Direction
