Kahne increased radar velocity to 67 MPH, exit velocity to 63 MPH, and ran his fastest 60 to date at 8.66 seconds during his last workout with The Factory. At SS, Kahne has good actions, he moves well to the glove side, and he makes plays consistently. He works the double play well, his exchange is clean, and he throws with accuracy and a strong arm across the diamond. On the mound, Kahne has good balance, he separates his hands on time, and has a controlled landing toward home plate. He finishes complete and throws strikes. Offensively, Kahne has a square stance, a short stride, and good balance. He swings aggressively, works the middle of the field, and uses his lower body. Abilities can continue to improve with work on the following.
1. Loosen actions

2. Loosen AA
3. Lower body

Kahne is an athletic and talented 2025 2-way prospect that was eager to learn. At SS, Kahne fields the ball out in front of his body, creates momentum in his throws, and has a quick release. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, present a low/early glove, and learn to throw from multiple arm angles. At the plate, Kahne starts in a tall stance, gets his backside through the ball, and hits the ball to all fields. Continuing to load his hands back into the drive position and attack the inside part of the ball will allow him to have a more compact swing. Widening his stance will allow him to stay in his legs and be balanced throughout the swing. On the bump, Kahne throws his fastball for strikes and competes on every pitch. He needs to continue to gather over the rubber, separate on time, and ride his back leg toward the plate. He has a controlled landing but needs to continue to work over the front side and finish. Kahne will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
