01/12/2018 - 2018 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Kurtis is the all-around package athlete who is fun to watch. As a hitter, this righty gets to a strong launch position and fires the barrel with a ton of speed. He hits the ball where it's pitched as it explodes off of his barrel to all parts of the field. Behind the plate, he sits in with flexion tracking pitches into a soft mitt. Transfer/exchange is quick with strong throws (91 mph) on a line into 2B with impressive pop times as low as 1.85. Runners will not want to test his cannon for an arm. If Kurtis Byrne isn't on your radar, he should be.
