04/23/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Plymouth Meeting (Philadelphia), PA Kross is a lean 3B/RHP who will graduate in 2023. Defensively at 3B, he shows fluid footwork as he gets into an athletic fielding position. He fields GB's with a smooth backhand glove and comes up with a clean exchange to throw. On the hill, this righty displays a balanced delivery and gets downhill. He delivers a 4-pitch mix, separating on time and finishes square towards his target. With the bat, Kross has smooth rhythm to load. He rips his lower 1/2 as he drives pitches with pop to his pull side. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Develop soft hands 2. Quicker exchange 3. Arm strength (long toss) Pitching 1. Stronger frontside 2. Deliver more strikes 3. Clean arm action Offense 1. Keep weight back 2. Improve bat speed 3. Create more consistent contact
