On the mound, he gets a good rear hip coil and keeps his front side closed throughout delivery. He showed some deception to his delivery. Attacks hitters with a FB that sits 72-74mph with plus command, an 11/5 shaped breaking ball with some depth, and a 10/5 shaped slider with tight spin. 2-seam FB was best pitch during his bullpen.

He has a good glove angle to the ball, he picks out the right hops, and throws with a high 3/4 arm slot across the diamond. Quicker feet and getting into a better fielding position can help defense get better. On the mound, Kenneth has a repeatable delivery, he separates his hands on time, and he lands with good direction toward home; competing in the zone. A looser arm action and better finish will help mound effectiveness get better. At the plate, this RHH has a tall/open stance, a short/square stride, and good balance. He has quiet eyes, stays inside the ball, and hits line drives gap to gap. Hitting can get better with work on timing, added bat speed, and work on barrel accuracy.
