07.09.16 - Left handed hitter that has a tall, slightly open setup.  His hands begin high, with some bat-cock and loads through a downward trigger.  Rotational through his lower half, the ball jumps when centered.  On the infield, Keenan is a CIF that catches balls in his frame.  He plays a little high through his hips but transfers the ball into a long, high-3/4 slot that has accuracy and carry.

2020 DRAFT:The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Keenan ranks as one of the better left handed sluggers in college baseball. He has a strong, thick lower half and plus raw power, but he also has solid barrel awareness and pitch recognition. Keenan is capable of using all fields, and he did just that during opening weekend against Louisville, singling to right field, center and through the left side. Keenan also has soft hands and good instincts at third base, and made one particularly good play on a slow chopper to his left, cutting the ball off in front of the shortstop and firing a strike to first on the run. It's easy to look at Keenan's oversized frame and project him to move to first base down the line, but he's more athletic than he looks and he plays the hot corner well enough at this stage to give him a chance to stick there. Remaining at third base would dramatically increase his value. His track record of performance in the SEC stands out, and he was off to a torrid start in 2020 before the season was cut short, hitting .403/.488/.791 with seven homers and 33 RBIs in 17 games.
