11/21/2020 - Back to Baseball Program Only - Glendale (Phoenix), AZ
Kenneth continues to refine his delivery and is harnessing better command of his 4-pitch mix. Very good downhill plane to his fastball, and a lot of north-south break to his curveball from that high 3/4 slot. Slider shows some promise with later, tighter 10/4 break in the low 70's, and he gets some nice fade on his changeup as well. Will continue to unlock more velocity with the combination of strength improvements and better utilization of his lower half. His arm is clean and has flashed quickness when he's upped the effort/intent. Exciting to consider how he's going to grow and improve over the next year and beyond. Looking forward to seeing him live again in January as he pitches at the Pre Season All America Tournament.
