Hands are set back, minimal load, and a slightly uphill path getting through. Displayed some bat speed and strength in a swing that worked gap to gap all while posting an 88 mph exit velocity. In the outfield Kell had a slower under control approach, fielded outside glove foot, and had a clean slower exchange. Flashed some high level arm strength posting a 90 mph outfield velocity from a three-quarter arm slot.
