06/15/2023 - Omaha National World Series - Session 1 Kris continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He did show at 2B for the first time at the event. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a squared setup. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. At 2B, defensive abilities are outstanding as 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. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range will improve as he increases foot quickness. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 80 mph. Fastball showed a range of 76-80 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Knuckle ball shows good downward, tumbling action. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
