Showed natural lift in swing with ability to make contact to all fields. During the games, Kenneth proved to be a tough out as he reached base 4 times. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber, with a good rear hip coil, and works with good direction down the mound. Showed a short/quick arm with some late arm whip. He attacks hitters with a FB that sat 76-78mph with late movement in the zone and a 1/7 shaped breaking ball with good depth and tight spin. In limited action due to arm injury, Kenneth struck out 1 batter and didn't allow a hit.

02/14/2021 - All-In Membership - Monticello, IA Kenneth is an athletic OF/LHP prospect who will graduate in 2022. In the field, Kenneth shows fluid footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He fields the ball out in front of his body and has a clean exchange, working to make accurate throws to his target. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a square stance and takes his stride on time. He is smooth to load and leads well with his lower half. He generates fast bat speed through the zone and drives the ball to his pull side. On the mound, Kenneth gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a clean arm and extends through his release, finishing with a controlled landing. Kenneth shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 75mph with tailing action. Breaking ball sits from 63-65mph with 1-7 break. Changeup sits from 70-72mph with sinking action as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Overall, Kenneth is a talented prospect who has the potential to contribute at the next level.

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).
