04/03/2022 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Omaha, NE Cael is a 2023 graduate out of Nebraska City High School. He showed a bit of versatility by working out for us at shortstop, behind the plate and on the mound. Defensively up the middle, Kreifel creates angles, plays through the ball well and can throw from multiple arm slots. Arm strength on flat ground went as high as 82mph. As a catcher, he showed flexibility, a clean exchange and easy actions. Pop times went as low as 2.31 seconds. On the mound, Cael has a nice tempo and repeats his mechanics on every pitch. Fastball topped at 77mph. With his body type and clean arm swing, we can see his fastball velocity climbing over the next year. At the plate, he is aggressive and uses the whole field. Cael is one to watch as he marches closer to college.
