05/21/2017 - College PREP - New Orleans, LA
Kyle is a tall and athletic 3B/RHP prospect. At 3B, Kyle has active pre pitch movement, plays through the backhand, and has the ability to throw from multiple arm angles. He can work on fielding the ball more out front, lateral movement, getting his feet into a stronger throwing position, and following through on his throws more. At the plate, Kyle loads his hands into the drive position, he is direct with his barrel to the ball, has top hand pop, and drives the ball to the opposite part of the field. Attacking the inside part of the ball, driving his lower half down to the ball, and getting extension though contact will allow him to be a more complete hitter. On the mound, Kyle gets balanced over the rubber, creates run on his FB, shows good tempo on the mound, and works at a good pace. He can work on riding his back side toward the plate, getting forward tilt over the front side, and developing his off speed pitches -- this will allow him to pound the lower part of the strike zone more consistently.
