1/09/22

Physical: 6-1, 180 pounds; Athletic, proportional build. 7.87 runner in the 60.

Offensively: RHH. Even setup, with feet shoulder width apart; has a pre-pitch bat waggle. Loads straight back with a slight leg-kick for timing. Stays behind the ball while showing a strong lower half. Showed a moderate swing path with a one-handed finish.  More line drives than flyballs and groundballs with a peak exit velocity of 87.00 MPH via Trackman. Comfortable in the box, right side hitting development needed to make next step, productive hitter, pullside pop.

Defensively: Starts with a balanced setup; uses prep step while displaying fluid actions to the baseball. Hands are soft while funneling to the hip before transfer. Moderate arm circle from a standard 3/4 arm slot. INF - 79.00 MPH.  We've seen Kaul's ability behind the dish and now he is showing sound versatility with playable corner infield ability.

7/13/21

Body: 6-1, 180-pounds. Long, lean, and athletic frame with some present strength. 
Hit: RHH. Sets up slightly open with his weight shifted a bit more onto his backside. Hands are relatively high around his back shoulder and has a bit of bat waggle that he uses for rhythm and timing.  Has a large leg kick that triggers one more bat waggle before he pushes his hands into a loaded position and points the bat vertically with a bit of bat tilt. He hit nearly 60% of the balls in his round for a line drive and with a max exit velocity of 90 mph he shows potential to be a real offensive contributor while also playing behind the plate.
Power: 90.00 max exit velocity.
Arm: RH. C - 74.00 mph. Consistent and accurate throws. Has a short and quick release and keeps his hands tight to his body. Showed on last throw ability to utilize long hop on throw downs. Gained good ground toward 2B on throws.
Defense: 2.06-2.12 pop times. Athletic movements behind the plate, yet still an imposing presence back there. Receives the ball deep and makes quick, clean transfers. Shows ability to stay at C at the next level.
Run: 7.24 runner in the 60.
