08/01/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Karsten is a big, projectable two-way player who always brings energy to the field and has a high baseball IQ. He shows off his strong arm in the outfield to cut down runners and on the mound with a big fastball. In the field, he shows active feet and is aggressive working to the ball, showing plenty of range. His exchange is clean and he release with momentum to his target to make strong, accurate throws. At the dish, he shows an opposite field approach, staying back on the ball and covering the entire strike zone. He has a strong, balanced lower half to generate a fast bat on a direct path to deliver the barrel to the ball. On the bump, he features a FB/CB mix, getting good action on each pitch. He pounds the zone and mixes his pitches well, able to throw both for strikes in any count to keep hitters off balance. More use of his lower half will help unlock more velocity moving forward. Karsten is an intriguing prospect we expect to continue to improve.
