12/27/2021 - Baseball Factory West Coast Winter Classic Kai is an advanced C/RHP in the class of 2026. He is mature, has a great attitude and communicates well beyond his years. Behind the plate, he has a low athletic set up and presents a solid target for his pitchers. He has clean exchanges and a short quick release (2.40 pop/71 velo). He routinely is on the bag with throws that have carry. On the mound, he uses a two pitch mix from the stretch. His FB topped at 64 and his CB has 12/6 shape. He has solid mound presence and has an understanding of how to pitch. Once he develops FB arm speed with his breaking pitch, he will be able to keep hitters off balance. At the plate he can really get on plane with the baseball. His timing with his stride is excellent and can shift his weight evenly. He can produce hard line drive contact (74 exit velo) with potential for more power. Kai will make an impact in his high school program very soon.
