11/04/2017 - 2017 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures Texas
Kevin continues to show well each time we see him. At the BF UA Futures Texas event he, once again, showed his outstanding tools and that he has the ability to use those tools when it counts - in games. Kevin is a unique combination of athleticism (6.87 in the 60) and hitting ability at the premium position of catcher. His offensive abilities were on display with a quality batting practice that included lots of barrel contact (91 mph exit velocity) followed by a 1-2 showing in game with an RBI and 2 walks. He has a quiet confidence in the box and a natural feel to hit that starts with the rhythmic coordination of his leg kick and hands to trigger his swing. Behind the plate Kevin was his usual solid self showing his advanced ability to receive and block while throwing a 1.94 to 2B. Quality catcher are hard to find - this is an outstanding prospect to continue to follow closely.

Kevin is a muscular, strong catching prospect with athleticism that shows up both offensively and defensively. He has a cannon of an arm behind the plate (90mph raw velo) that he uses to help shut down the running game (1.87 pop time). He shows an easy, low setup behind the dish and uses quick feet and agile lateral movements to collapse and block quickly to both sides and deaden the ball to center. He works around the ball to receive with soft hands and earn extra strikes for his pitcher. At the plate, he loads to a powerful bat angle and has a strong stride to incorporate his lower half and generate power. His bat is explosive through the zone working directly to the ball to make hard, line drive contact for base hits. Getting his arms extended through contact will result in more carry on the ball and more extra base hits. Kevin is a very exciting prospect who has a bright future in the game.
