6/21/23

Carson-Newman Commit. 5-foot-10, 150-pounds. Kane has a full circle arm action with minimal depth and a ¾ release. His advanced lower half mechanics helped him stay in and around the zone for the entirety of the game. Really good feel all his pitches. He went 4 innings, allowing zero hits, zero runs, while striking out 3. His fatball ranged from 84-86 and topping out at 88. He used his FB to set up his CB (69-70) and SL (76-77) with Sweeping Action. His CB and SL were used really well during the game and caused multiple freezes, pop-ups, and grounders. Kane also did a really good job of letting his defense work and not feeling like he needed to do too much. Kane also had really good command throughout the game and therefore wasted no time getting through the opposing teams order multiple times. Good player that still has room to increase his velocity. Will be a good follow throughout the summer.

Carson Newman College commit. Athletic and proportionate frame at 5-10, 150-pounds. Worked exclusively from the stretch. Full arm swing with ¾ depth, H3Q slot. Good lower half mechanics, helped him stay in and around the zone for entirety of the game. FB generated several s/m in the first few innings up in the zone, sitting 85-87, if located low hitters would beat the pitch into the ground, several groundball outs as well. Really found feel for secondary offerings in later innings, providing some deception as pitches have similar arc towards the plate from the same slot before darting in different directions. Tight SL sat 76-77, was squeezed a few times in early innings so went way from pitch but went back to it in later innings for a handful of s/m. Also flashed a solid CH at 78, tunneling well off FB. Impressive outing on the mound with a complete game shutout, 7 IP, 3 H, 0 BB, 8 K.
