07/22/2021 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (MS) Kapono is a SS/RHP is the class of 2026. In the field, he shows an athletic setup and plays on the balls of his feet. Uses active footwork to expand his range and help take him to balls hit laterally from him. Plays fast and downhill. Showed off accurate throws but could see big benefits from a throwing program to help improve his arm strength. At the plate, he starts in an open stance with loose hands. Tries to activate his lower 1/2 in his load. Does a good job rotating through the baseball and shows off a line drive approach. On the mound, he used a 3 pitch mix to help keep hitters off balance. Delivered all pitches from a high 3/4 arm slot. Threw 58% of his pitches for strikes in game action. Kapono is a good player with an excellent attitude that we expect to see continue to develop as he matures.

Baseball Factory Denver All-Star Experience (12-14) Kapono is a SS/RHP prospect who will graduate high in 2026. Young developing player who has lean build, with some strength present, and plenty of time to add to his frame as he matures. At SS, starts with a relaxed ready position and athletic actions. Creates good angles and fields from a low fielding position. Ability to pick out hops, with a 2-hand field, and a good glove angle. Keeps his eyes behind his glove and has a clean transfer. Short arm action in back as he works into a low 3/4 arm slot coming forward. Creates momentum, with accurate throws across diamond, and had an arm velocity of 62mph. On the mound, a right-handed pitcher who works exclusively from the stretch with good direction down the mound. He gets to a good balance point and picks up target early. Strike thrower who threw 72% strikes in live game action. In 2 innings of work vs high school aged hitters, Kapono surrendered no runs and struck out 3 batters. He works off of a FB that sits 61-63mph, a 9/3 shaped breaking ball, and a CH he throws with FB arm speed and some sinking action in the zone. Has good feel for the CH. At the plate, he hits from an upright and open stance. Simple/repeatable swing, with good balance, and gets extended out front. Made consistent contact as he sprayed balls to all fields. In live game action, he reached base on 2 singles and an error with a bat exit velocity of 60mph.

Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At SS, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works to square balls up but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he increases his foot quickness. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
