01/21/2018 - College PREP - Kapolei (Honolulu), HI Kainoa is a tall, athletic 3B/C who has a promising future on the diamond. At 3B, he displays clean actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper angles but needs to attack ball more and play through with his body. Glove action is soft and presents out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.18 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He tracks balls well and sticks balls in the zone but needs to widen his stance and needs to utilize his body more through the blocking process. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact and stays inside the ball through a line drive approach. With 2 years to further develop, Kainoa has a lot of potential with a lot of room to progress his game.
