2.4.18 (Super 60) - Missouri State recruit. Extremely strong and physical 6-foot-5, 230-pound frame with developed lower half and proportional strength. Kotowski continues to show vast improvements in his overall game. Once considered a fringe first baseball/left fielder, Kotowski showed at the Super 60 that he very well may profile as a big power-hitting right fielder. Flashed arguably the best raw power at the Super 60, though lacked consistency. Hit the two farthest balls of the day (393 feet and 392), per FlightScope, and hit six balls at least 300 feet with top exit velocities of 106.07 and 105.25. His launch angle was 27.49. Beyond the data, the naked eye can see that he generates explosive bat speed and swings with angry intent to do damage. Ball jumps off the barrel, creates lift in the swing, strong through contact, dead-pull approach. Rhythm in the hands, length and inconsistency in path. ... He's always been known for his right-handed juice, but Kotowski turned some heads with his outfield arm strength, registering 94 mph. (Over the summer, at the Midwest ProCase, he was clocked at 86). Also moves a lot better than the size/frame would indicate. Moved in the outfield with some fluidity, taking more concise routes to the ball. Also chiseled down his 60 time to 7.18.
7.11.17 - Missouri State recruit, currently ranked No. 275 overall. Physical 6-foot-4, 220-pound right-handed hitting outfielder, strong, mature build with developed lower half and proportional strength. Big right-handed power potential is his calling card. Possesses extremely strong hands, generates explosive bat speed, takes man-hacks. Ball jumps off the barrel, creates lift in the swing, strong through extension, pull-side approach. Registered event-best 102-mph exit velocity with wood. Hits from tall, slightly open setup, rhythm in hands and load, some length and inconsistency in path, swings with intent to do damage. Defensively profiles as left fielder/first baseman. Average arm strength, 86 mph. Athletically has steadily improved over the years. Moves better than frame/size would indicate; ran a 7.26 laser-timed 60. Overall, shows potential of being a high-level right-handed power bat in the future.

2.19.17 - Missouri State commit. 6-foot-4, 205-pound, wide-shouldered, physical, athletically built outfielder. Had one of the top exit velocities of the event and outfield arms; 99 mph exit velocity and clocked at 90 mph from the outfield. Offensively has middle of the order ability at the next level with present pull power. Aggressive swinger, creates bat speed, lift in swing and looks to pull the ball with authority. Open, balanced setup, leg-kick timing trigger and average balance through contact. In the outfield, aggressive routes, attacks, plays through the baseball with reliable hands. Loose, quick arm, throws carry and topped at 90 mph. Also, ran a 7.29 laser-timed 60.

Also ran a 7.30 laser-timed 60.

6.20.16 - was one of the most impressive hitters at the event, and he continued to show why, as the solidly built 6-foot-2, 190-pound right-handed hitter delivered two more hits and a RBI in the first inning.

6.18.16 - led the way for Top Tier, going 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI, a run and was hit by a pitch. The physical 6-foot-2, 190-pound right-handed hitter has continued to show himself as one of the better power bats in the tournament. He keyed a two-run fifth inning when he crushed a two-run double to deep left-center field. 2018 RHP Brandon McPherson (Marmion HS, IL) pitched five solid innings to earn the victory behind his 81-83 mph fastball that topped at 85.
