2/10/24
OF Ian Kelly (Huntley, 2026) continues to trend upwards each time we lay eyes on him. He’s gained some strength in his 5-foot-10, 160-pound frame, and we’re starting to see some development in his lower-half. The left-handed hitter displayed loose/whippy hands through the zone, utilizing a flat path with extension out front to create a max EV of 91 mph. There’s an athletic look to his swing, working with some rhythm throughout his round and finishing on-balance while working the ball to the whole field. Defensively, Kelly has active footwork and athletic actions, playing through the ball with rhythm and intent. He moves well into a crow hop, delivering strong throws from a full arm swing and over-the-top slot, reaching up to 85 mph. Projectable outfielder that continues to improve in each look.
