12/27/2020 - Baseball Factory East Coast Winter Classic
Kyson continues to show as a prospect on the diamond. At 1B, he displays clean/smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls and plays through with his body. He is a quality receiver at the bag, displaying proper footwork. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine with solid power potential through a tall, open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. On the mound, he throws from a high ¾ arm slot. Fastball showed a range of 62-65 mph with cutting action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. His changeup has some slight sink. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.

In less than a year since his last Factory outing, Kyson should vast improvements to all aspects of his game. Defensively at 1B, he was aggressive and made plays with two hands. His arm played consistently accurate and he had a nice short arm stroke from the 3/4 slot. At the plate, he had a middle approach and was simple with his move which allowed for good barrel accuracy. On the mound, he threw a FB with run for strikes and a CB with 10/4 shape. He had good direction and a good stride to deliver and showed good control, throwing over 50% of his pitches for strikes. In all, we really enjoy seeing the progress that Kyson has made and can't wait to see where he takes his game between now and his next outing with us!

Kyson is a 1B/RHP that attended Dodgertown. Kyson shows good hustle and footwork around 1B and works hard to create good angles to the ball. Getting his glove more out in front of his body and taking more reps will help Kyson become a more consistent fielder. He delivers the ball around the diamond with accuracy and carry to the target. At the plate, Kyson sets up in a square stance with comfortable hands. He takes a short stride to start his swing and gets his foot down on time. He gets the barrel on plane and rotates his core to deliver the barrel showing contact to all fields. On the mound, Kyson shows a 3-pitch mix with a FB, CB, and CH. Pitching, he shows confidence on the mound as he works out of the stretch. He keeps his stride in line as he works down the mound and lands under control. Kyson is young and will continue to improve. We look forward to seeing his progress as time moves on.
