Kaden continues to shine on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At SS, feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft and presents well out front, working from the ground up. He moves well laterally with range improving as he continues to increase foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he showed as a RHH through a tall, athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will continue to increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.
