Cape Cod: Kuehler was a force this spring for Campbell, racking-up 111 strikeouts and just 38 walks over 88 innings of work while boasting an explosive fastball. He made just two appearances for Brewster before departing to join USA Baseball Collegiate National Team, where he continued his impressive summer run. He easily carved through 6.2 scoreless innings with Brewster, punching out seven, off the strength of his low-to-mid-90s fastball (2600 rpm) and two impressive breaking balls – a low-to-mid-80s slider with short but sharp action and two-plane break and a deeper 79-81 curve ball with 10/4 shape. He also showed feel for an 81-83 mph changeup that is still developing but shows promise with good arm speed and fade in the finish. Kuehler is a strong body throwing power stuff out of a compact frame. Though not a traditional starter build – listed at six-foot, 205 pounds – there is enough depth in his arsenal for the righty to grow into a quality starter at the next level. Evaluators will look for more consistency out of the breaking balls and an ability to keep good hitters off plane given the three-quarters slot out of a shorter frame and release. He's a potential Day One arm for next years MLB Draft and should be one of the more entertaining hurlers to follow through the fall and spring.

USA CNT: Kuehler was an easy pick to click during fall ball at Campbell last spring thanks to his electric stuff, and he backed up the expectations by posting a 4.07 ERA and a 111-38 K-BB mark in 84 innings in the Campbell rotation this spring. He struck out four over three innings of one-run ball in Cary, then did not allow an earned run in two relief appearances in Haarlem. Compact and muscular at 6-foot, 205 pounds, Kuehler stands on the far first base side of the rubber and deploys an old-school over-the-head windup followed by a short takeaway to a high arm slot. His fastball was one of the most explosive we saw during training camp, coming in at 92-96 mph with elite spin rates as high as 2600 rpm. He mixed in two promising breaking balls that both flashed above-average in his 83-87 slider with short tilt and his three-quarters curveball at 79-81. He was able to get some swing-throughs with both pitches, but neither looked like a wipeout offering in his sole appearance in Cary. Kuehler occasionally got out of sync and rushed his delivery, impacting his command, but overall he has good feel for strike-throwing with excellent stuff.

A weekend starter for much of last year and the commencement of this season, Kuehler has been on midweek action for the Camels for the last month. The righthander overwhelmed Ohio State in his most recent start, allowing one run on four hits over six innings with two walks and 10 strikeouts. Compactly built at 6-foot, 205-pounds, Kuehler leverages his remarkable arm speed to generate mid-90s velocity with his fastball (2275-2364 spin). There’s some stiffness and funk in the delivery, providing deception which is further amplified with compact arm action and a high three-quarter release. He throws two breaking balls, the best of which is a tight 86-88 mph slider (2335-2440 spin) with hard downer action, whereas his 80-82 mph curveball was more of a strike stealer. The sophomore elicited 17 empty swings in the outing, 13 of which were on the fastball and a large portion of those were elevated. While the arsenal showed dynamic potential, command was wavering for the entirety of the outing. The righthander has day one draft potential and will get a chance to showcase his stuff for Brewster in the Cape Cod League this summer.

Average frame at 5-foot-11, 175 pounds.  Average leg kick with some coil in his line at balance.  Long arm action, working slightly behind the body line, works to a high-¾ slot.  Level, lands square and on-line, creating extension through his target. Fastball ranged 81-85.  Breaking ball works with average 11/5 tilt, sitting 72-74.
