New Jersey Games (July 23, 2016)
Angel is built like a linebacker at 6-foot-3 225-pounds, but has an arm that works. One of the top performers of the whole event and arguably the top uncommitted arm left in the 2017 class. Lulls you to sleep with a slow, but controlled windup, but explodes down the mound. High-3/4 arm. Tendency to whip his head. Athletic and controlled landing and finish. Sat 85-87 mostly and got it up to 89 a few times. Curveball has sharp 11/5 spin at 70-71, used as a true out pitch. Changeup 76-77. High ceiling for arm that continues to improve.


Winter Trials South (January 30, 2016)
Kyle is a filled out 6-foot-3 225 pound RHP who continues to impress each time out. Pitching- Kyle continues bump his velocity and show improved command of his secondary stuff. Uses a short side step with a leg drive just above the belt. Showed a slight wrap behind his body within his arm action but keeps his body in alignment with this. Eats up ground with a controlled, yet aggressive stride. Demonstrated good hip/shoulder rotation to the plate, supporting the arm in a low 3/4 arm slot. Tremendous leverage when getting up and over his front side allowing him to get good extension and stay over his breaking ball. FB peaked at 87 MPH, pitching mostly in the 82-84 range. Interestingly enough his two best fastballs (86 & 87 MPH) came from the stretch. Change up held it's plane and 77 MPH and breaking ball (slider/slurve family) showed above average action with some late, biting tilt at 72-73 MPH. Interesting to see how he projects as he's a horse on the mound that can use 3 pitches but may also fill a short man role at a high level with a live FB that continues to climb and an above average breaking pitch, especially with his comfort out of the stretch.
NJ Underclass Games (September 20, 2015)
Angel showed a ton of improvement in his outing at the Underclass Games. His velocity was up to 79-83 miles-per-hour and his fastball still had a ton of arm side life.  His breaking ball was sweeping in action but was tighter than before at 68-70 MPH. His changeup mimics fastball and has potential to be an above average pitch. With the stick, Angel hit with more authority, showing raw power potential to his pull side. He looked smoother in the defensive portion of the workout, relying less on his arm and more on gaining ground and being fluid.
NJ Open (August 5, 2015)
Angel is a physical 6-foot-3, 225 pounds. He starts with a low hands set and a relaxed rhythm. He has a smooth, strong load back with both his weight and his hands. He has bat speed and strength in his swing and creates a good amount of leverage. He is a pull side hitter with potential for power. He has a strong arm defensively and is accurate over to first base. His glove is good enough to be a solid defender at third base.
On the mound, the right-hander pitches with smooth, easy mechanics and a relaxed, repeatable tempo. He has a long arm action and pitches from a ¾ slot that produces sharp run to his arm side. His fastball velocity ranged between 77 and 80 miles-per-hour. His curveball showed potential and had decent break at 66-67 miles-per-hour. He is aggressive in the zone with his fastball and gets through his pitches with aggression. The intent to throw hard is there and more velocity is on the way.
