Kiernan showed another strong TO as he posted his best 60-time and continues to build his projections as a SS. He continues to show a good pre-pitch routine with soft hands and a quick exchange. At the plate, he maintains his square stance with good balance and strong lower half. Smoothing out his load and staying through the middle will improve his skills as a hitter. Overall, Kiernan continues shine and has a bright future ahead of him.

Kiernan is wiry strong junior that projects as a middle infielder. This righty squares himself to the plate with activated hands, some balance and a good rhythm with his swing. He creates some bat speed with his strong hands, giving him pop to the pull side. Kiernan goes up to the plate with a smart approach and it is evident from just watching him hit. At 2B, he showed good pre-pitch actions with good direction to/around the ball when fielding. He has a solid feel for fielding and makes the routine plays look easy. Working on gaining strength and engaging his lower 1/2 will take his abilities to another level.
