5/19/19

Athletic, 5-foot-10 145, Kiernan has room for weight and strength gains. He displays solid infield actions with a feel for all the plays. He has a quick transition on double play feeds, maintaining a quick arm that provides ample carry across the diamond as well. Kiernan possesses the ability to play all three infield spots, but offensively will profile better up the middle. At the plate, he hits off his backside, striding to a flat foot with a stiff front side. The mostly pull side approach and swing plane lend to fly balls with limited carry.  Kiernan has good feel for the barrel, making consistent contact.

Kiernan is an athlete who can pitch. The consummate postion player with solid feel for three pitches with an ability to throw consistent strikes. In spite of a crude delivery he competes in the stike zone with a fastball in the mid 70s and mid 60s off speed. With steady work and adjustment, Kiernan has a chance to be a capable three pitch mix, innings eater type guy, but his real value is in the infield.

11/18 - Maturing, 5-foot-8, 135, Kiernan is still developing physically but maintains solid infield actions with a feel for the game. He displayed a simple approach at the plate, resulting in consistent quality contact. His size and strength lend to second base presently but it is easy to see him at shortstop down the line.

2/10/19 -Lean, 5-foot-10, 145, Kiernan is a projectable middle infielder with developing actions and arm strength. He will likely lend himself to second base early in his high school career but it is easy to see him at shortstop with maturation accompanied by weight and strength gains. He has solid hands and footwork rhythm.  He has a feel for multiple angle throws both on double play feeds and slow rollers. He has a bit of a longer draw on his arm but time and reps will shorten his actions.  As a hitter, he employs a two-touch lower half load with a slight cocking of the hands, tipping the barrel a touch toward the pitcher. He maintains a backside approach with an uphill plane which limits weight transfer, resulting in fly ball contact. Presently, he lacks the strength to drive the ball out of the park but has some looseness to his hands and barrel which will bode well for him down the line. It is easy to some sneaky power in his future.
