Behind the plate, feet are active as he gains ground and works through a clean / transfer exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times have improved as he threw his lowest pop time to date at 2.12. Throws display accuracy with times continuing to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Hands are soft as he lets the ball travel and tracks well, sticking in the zone. He shows off his athletic abilities through the blocking process, as he is a wall behind the dish. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He utilizes his lower half well and makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 77-83 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape, flashing late / sharp break. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.

Sitting in a square stance towards the pitcher can help Kayden improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance and takes his stride on time. He is smooth getting into his load and drives through well with his lower half. He takes a level swing with decent bat speed, leading to solid contact to his pull side.

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).
