Kade Thompson, Casteel (AZ), 2024

Positional Profile: C/SS Could be the top defender at his position in 24 class. Showed really well on this day. High follow at the C position, will be tracking his physical development.
Body: 5-foot-9, 160-pounds. Compact build with strength in lower half and hands.
Hit: RHH. Sets up square to pitcher, strong in his legs. Hands held at shoulder height and is balanced.  Uses a leg kick and bat path is quick and direct. Gets to a great position to hit at contact. Strong in his legs, hands stay tight and travel across the chest, leads with the knob of bat.
Power: 89.85 max exit velocity, averaged 82.75 mph. 333’ max distance. Good middle of the field approach. Works inside the baseball and creates back spin. More consistency to the top half would produce higher average exit velo numbers.
Arm: RH. C - 79 mph.   Mechanics on throws to 2B is quick and clean. Arm strength is above average and throws were on the bag.
Defense: 1.84-2.1 pop times. Advanced in all areas behind the plate. Always ready to block and is committed to keeping the ball in front. Catch and throw is clean and receiving is above average.
Run: 7.39 runner in the 60. Speed plays more on the bases than straight line running.

Positional ProfileC/SS Shows above average feel behind the plate. 
Body5-7, 140-pounds. Medium athletic build, young compact body, above average athleticism, has started to grow but still maturing.
HitRHH. Balanced athletic setup, sinks into back hip just before leg lift. Hands start back with minimal load. Lands closed.  Level swing with an efficient path. Gets out of the zone early at times. Low rotational acceleration. Worked the whole field. 
Power: 85 mph exit velocity via Trackman. Pop should get better with strength & maturity.
Arm: Right-handed. C - 73 mph. INF - 76 mph. Short quick arm action with athletic finish. Quick clean transfers in the center of the body. Above average arm for age. 
Defense2.08-2.22 pop times. Natural low center of gravity. Quick footwork, short step towards target. Low flexible primary stance, wide secondary. Glove works from underneath the ball. Athletic blocker. Also worked out in the INF. Good pre-pitch movement, stays low with active feet, usable hands. 
Run7.70 runner in the 60.

2/09/20

5-foot-5 125-pounds, young frame, proportional athleticism, some strength in forearms, plenty of maturing to come. Ran a 7.98 60-yard dash. Starts in a slightly open stance with a spread out base. Uses a knee turn leg kick to create leverage. Raw swing with mid/pull approach. Above average contact for age at 71mph. Starts in a staggered secondary stance, leaning on his right leg. Quick arm with some direction. 2.14-2.27 pop times at 68mph arm strength. Good pre-pitch movement in infield. Creates angles rounding the baseball. Choppy footwork will improve with time.
