Kade worked out on the mound and at SS during his last workout with The Factory. On the hill, Kade stands over the rubber well balanced, his arm action is loose, and he keeps his eyes on target. He separates on time, gets good extension on his pitches, and he finishes in a complete position. At SS, Kade has playable hands and feet, he makes the routine plays, and throws with good direction across the diamond. Offensively, Kade has an aggressive approach, he loads well, and can spray to all fields. He flashes some bat speed and he uses his lower body.

Kade is a RHP/SS prospect who will graduate in 2024. On the mound, Kade hides the ball well as he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 59mph. Breaking ball sits from 53-54mph with 10-4 break. Changeup ranges from 53-55mph with arm side run as he throws with fastball arm speed. In the field, Kade shows active footwork and fields with soft hands. He makes a clean exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them consistently on-line to his target. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance and takes a short stride. He takes a direct swing to the ball and makes consistent contact. Overall abilities can improve with work on the following.
1. Looser arm action
2. Chest over knee finish
3. Glove tuck
1. Fielding position
2. Hands out front
3. Long toss
1. Lower half drive
2. Keep hands raised.
