Notes

Comments

3/28/23

Western Illinois commit. 6-foot-2, 195-pounds, well-portioned, lean, athletic frame. Coming off an off-season injury got a limited start to start his senior season. The southpaw works from the stretch only, works in-line and in rhythm. Long, clean arm action from a high 3/4 arm slot. Used a fastball, curveball mix to keep the Marist off-balance. Fastball worked with late arm side action and controlled the zone at 83-85 mph. The curveball was the go to secondary offering with the ability to manipulate shape/action, mainly worked off 1/7 plane but was able to work a 12/6 against lefties, sitting 66-69 mph. Kachinsky went 2.2 innings of shutout, no-hit baseball while striking out three. 

2/21/22

Positional Profile: LHP
Body: 6-2, 195-pounds. Well-proportioned frame.
Delivery: Athletic delivery, smooth and balanced tall and fall type. Lands square with closed toe, occasional recoil finish.
Arm Action: LH. Arm action is loose, high 3/4 to 3/4 slot.
FB: T84.6, 82.1-84.0 mph. Well above average feel and repeatability, flashed sink and arm side action. T2396, 2141 average rpm.
CB: 68.4-70.6 mph. 1/7 shape, gradual action.  T2328, 2183 average rpm.
CH: 78.6-79.4 mph. Maintains fastball arm speed, showed arm side run. T1747, 1687 average rpm.

LHP Colton Kachinsky (Lincoln-Way West, 2023) is an impressive 6-foot-2, 195-pound southpaw with a gifted arm for his age. It's a long and loose lever that works with ease to produce an 82-84 mph fastball that showed well above average feel and arm side run (measuring at 14 inches on average). Kachinsky showed above average feel for all three pitches, including a sweeping curveball and fading changeup. 

10/03/20

6-foot, 162-pound, well-proportioned, left-handed pitcher. Repeated his delivery well and kept hitters off balance all day long thanks to his fastball/curveball combination. Mixed his curveball in at any time, short wrinkle, feel for the zone, 1/7 shape. Fastball played in the mid-70’s, topped at 78 mph; a bunch of weak contact, rollovers, frustrating hitters. Pitchability left-hander who collects outs to follow in the 2023 class.
Final Line: 4 IP, 4 H, ER, 3 K, 2 BB.

6/02/20

6-foot, 162 pounds; big, strong frame. Sat 75-78 mph from a ¾ slot with an uptempo delivery, repeats well. Pounded the zone, attacked hitters with confidence; struck out five of the six he faced in two innings of work. Almost exclusively used his fastball to miss bats; batters were consistently late and seemingly struggled to square anything up.

2/17/20

Positional Profile: LHP

3/04/18

5-foot-3, 110-pound, left-handed hitting/throwing, two-way player. At the plate, balance setup, smooth back load, short toe tap trigger.

Defensively, steady footwork, arm plays long, over the top slot, throws topped 49 mph across. 9.30 runner in the 60.
