01/15/2016 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Kody is an athletic R/R catcher who worked very hard on his skills during his time in Arizona. With the bat, this righty has a balanced setup with fluid rhythm to load. He whips the barrel through the zone with loose hands, connecting and driving the ball on a line. He creates good extension through contact and has some pull-side pop. Behind the plate, Kent sits in well and tracks pitches into a soft mitt. He moves quickly to his right and left, centering pitches in the dirt off of his chest. Exchange/transfer is clean as he works in-line toward 2B - putting the ball on the bag with pop times now as low as 2.15. Times will only continue to drop as he quickens his exchange. Kody is a coachable player who makes adjustments quickly. A 2019 grad - he has upside with still time to continue to progress.
