Kyle showed good arm strength and consistency while at the Cape Cod event. Behind the plate he is sure handed and improved greatly blocking the ball. Working on lateral quickness and continuing to polish skills will help him in the future. Offensively Kyle showed good potential and improved a lot at the Cape. More specifically he has an aggressive approach, stays inside the ball and has a short/direct swing path. If Kyle can smooth his approach, stay centered, and extend through the ball more the power and overall hitting ability will continue to improve. Kyle is a great kid who works hard, listens well, and improved every day.
