05/14/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Poughkeepsie, NY Kevin is an athletic, 2-way player at 1B/LHP. Defensively at 1B, he takes fluid cuts as he gets into a low/athletic fielding position. He works around the GB, fielding it with soft hands and comes up with a clean exchange to throw. On the hill, this lefty delivers from a hi 3/4 arm slot with loose arm action. He separates on time delivering a FB with good life and a knuckle-curve with a 1-7 break. At the plate, Kevin is a great contact hitter with smooth rhythm to load. He swings on a level path through the zone as he drives pitches back up through the middle of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
