Kaden showed a spike in arm velocity to 65 MPH as well as in hitting grades during his time in Arizona. At SS, Kaden has good hands, fields cleanly, and moves with good agility to the ball. He creates a good glove angle, funnels well, and throws with accuracy and strength across the diamond. On the mound, this RHP has good confidence, a clean/loose arm action, and attacks the zone. Kaden works out of the stretch only, has good direction toward home, and throws strikes. At the plate, Kaden improved both hitting and power grades. He is an aggressive hitter with a good load and the ball jumps off his bat. Kaden has fast bat speed and hits with strength to the pull side.
