Kaden is an outstanding catching prospect in the 2023 class. He recently impressed scouts at the AZ Preseason event with a strong make-up and skill set. Very athletic and explosive behind the dish (6.97 60 yd), he stays under the baseball with a low soft target. He works up through the baseball to maintain the strike zone. His exchanges are quick and clean and produces on-line throws to the bag (1.94 pop). Moves well laterally and replaces his feet on dirt balls. At the plate, he has the ability to hit to all fields based upon the pitch. He can make consistent contact and uses a direct barrel path to the pitch. His stride can become closed at times and cut off his lower half. Maintaining a square base in the load will allow him to engage his lower backside to increase his ball flight and carry. Kadan is an advanced backstop and with two years to develop, he will turn into an exceptional college prospect.
