09/14/2008 - College PREP - Parker, CO Kyle is a young 1B with a stocky, strong looking body that does show projection at the next level. He shows his strength at the plate displaying some pop in his bat. Hands are strong and he does show a feel for the barrel. Power will increase with a better load and transfer of weight through the lower half. Hitting abilities are near average but should improve quickly with some instruction and adjustments at the plate. Defensive abilities are average and he utilizes his strong build in displaying a solid target at 1B. Range is limited due to foot speed and would like to see him be more aggressive with his feet in coming to get grounds balls. Glove action is deep allowing the baseball to dictate play. Playing through ground balls with feet and hands will aid in a more sure glove action. Arm strength is below average and he needs to get on a strict long toss program to aid in building more arm strength. Kyle has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
