10/23/2013 - Under Armour SoCal Classic, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One TK brings energy and is a vocal leader. Defensively, he shows smooth actions and plays through the ball from right to left. He is soft handed and fields the ball cleanly. Using 2-hands to turn the DP will quicken exchange. Offensively, TK shows and athletic stance with good rhythm. He lets the ball travel in the zone and has the ability to drive it to the opposite field. He hustles out of the box which puts pressure on the defense. He is a top of the line-up type of guy with his ability to put the barrel on the ball consistently. Increased size and strength will add to TK's all-around solid skill-set.

07/15/2013 - College PREP - Plano, TX TK is an athletic 2B that will graduate in 2014. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 7.11 60 time. Defensive abilities are outstanding as he utilizes his quick feet well in attacking ground balls and plays through well with his body. Hands are soft / clean / sure and he shows big play potential in the MIF. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Kidwell shows a balanced setup with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed to and through a level swing path, creating extension. He works to stay inside the ball and utilizes all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. TK has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
