C/2B Derek Kiepke (Liberty, 2024)

 

5-foot-11 185 pounds, compact build, strength is there, room for added strength/athleticism. (Running) 7.48 runner in the 60. (Offense) RH. Max EV 97. Max Dist. 329. Simple set up in the box. Base outside of shoulder width, hands held at the shoulder with a slight bat wrap. Uses a no stride approach and turns the front toe in as timing mechanism. Stays grounded and in his legs well. Has some bat speed and adjustability with the hands. Gets to the inner half of the baseball and creates back spin flight. Contact stayed to the middle/pull side gap with line drive contact. Swing stays tight and short, good spot for success. (Defense) (C) RH. C velo 76. Pop times 1.95-2.07. Quick with the transfer and release. More of a direct path to target with footwork could create a stronger throwing position and increased ball flight. Arm shows it will play and develop with cleaned up technique. Clean blocking technique, keeps the ball in front and in a spot he can recover and throw from. Recover on block was quick and athletic.

 

Game action: 1-3 1B, K
