Kevin continues to show steady progress in his baseball abilities. At the plate, he displays solid power potential through a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a plus feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. At 1B, he displays smooth fluid actions. Feet are aggressive and displays proper foot work around the bag. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy to his throws but he will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable, and plays the game hard.
