Northeast Pride Workout (February 10, 2018)

Kindl stands in at 5-foot-10, 160-pounds with an athletic frame. Ran a 7.32 – 60. Offensively- Lefty sets up in an open stance with little bat movement. Has a smooth trigger pre-pitch setting body up in a good hitting position. Could use more lower body rotation for power and make contact out in front of the plate more. Smooth swing with a level barrel path through the zone. Recorded an exit velocity of 78 MPH, tying his personal best set in September 2017. Defensively- Good approach and footwork to the baseball. Makes smooth movements throughout the crow hop to get behind the throw. Appropriate outfielder arm swing with accurate throws. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 78 MPH, tying his personal best set in September 2017. Pitching- Lefty sets up in the middle of the rubber utilizing a high leg kick into good separation. Smooth arm action into a good throwing position on foot strike with a high ¾ release point. Fastball range was 78-79 MPH and peaked at 79 MPH. Change up showed good sinking movement in the 72-73 MPH range. Slider had tight action and was 69-72 MPH. Talented 2020 graduate to keep an eye on.

Western NY All-Star Games (September 24, 2017)

Kindl stands in at 5-foot-9, 140-pounds with a lean athletic frame. Offensively- Lefty sets up slightly open with his feet just outside shoulder width. Shows a slight knee bend with an upright torso holding the bat above the back shoulder using little pre-pitch bat movement. On pitch, his trigger is a quick knee raise in to stride forward while his hands move back slightly into his hitting position. Utilizes good lower body rotation clearing his hips and using the whole-body frame in the process of the swing. Shows quick hands into the hitting zone with a level barrel path throughout into a high one-handed finish. Demonstrated good plate coverage with line drive ability up the middle and pull side. 2020 grad shows a clean, fluid swing with potential. Recorded an exit velocity of 78 MPH. Defensively- Good approach and footwork to get to the baseball. Shows a good crow hop and outfielder arm swing making aggressive strides towards the throwing target. Was accurate with the throws and moved well left/right. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 77 MPH. Pitching- Sets up on the right side of the rubber with a simple high leg kick above his hip crease. Good drive down with appropriate separation getting into a good throwing position with a high ¾ release point. Utilizes whole body when throwing and repeats delivery on different pitches. Fastball sat 77-79 MPH and peaked at 79 MPH with good arm side run. Curveball shows tight spin and is 69-70 MPH. Overall a high end 2020 prospect to keep an eye on. Will only get better with added strength and his continued development.
