  • Position Projection

06/02/2018 - 2018 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National West Kaden continues to show as a top prospect on the diamond. Pop times showed in the 1.95 range with on line carry and accuracy to his throws. Receiving / blocking skills are tremendous as he shows off his athletic abilities. At the plate, he continues to shine. He has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation. Barrel is whipped through the zone (87 mph exit velocity)as he connects through a line drive path. A talented prospect - he will make things happen both behind the dish as well as with the bat.

01/12/2018 - 2018 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Kadens profile, a left-handed hitting catcher, garners attention immediately. His skills and ability to play the game keep you interested. He had an excellent weekend at the Cubs Spring Training Complex in Mesa, AZ. Kaden generated bat speed with a fluid LH stroke that led to lots of barrel in his batting practice. While hes most comfortable driving balls to RF and RCF, he utilizes the entire field, as he showed with an opposite-field double in the game. Kaden really shined behind the plate where he was named the Easton Elite Gloveman as the best defensive catcher at the event. He threw to 2B in 1.87 and handled his pitchers with a quiet confidence that made it look easy behind the plate. He is committed to the University of Arizona and should get a lot of attention over the next two high school seasons.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
