Kevin West: OF/SS, (2022) Mason, OH. 5-foot-10, 165-pound. In the box, the right-handed hitter had a max exit velocity of 87 mph. Begins in an athletic balanced stance with a smooth load, then uses a controlled stride. Had above average bat speed, short simple swing plane and good extension on his finish. Found multiple barrels in his rounds. Up the middle approach. Smooth from the outfield, he displayed a position velocity of 86 mph; has a quick exchange, athletic feet, and consistent hands. Movements laterally were athletic. Consistent accuracy to the bag, used a high ¾ slot with a quick arm action.

2/17/19 Position

Body Type: 5-foot-9 130-pound prospect with a smaller, immature frame.

Really good, athletic swing. Shows a medium setup and starts his swing with a leg kick. Showed quick hands and an on plane bat path.

Good bat to ball ability and really good barrel control.

81 mph exit velocity.

Offensive Projection: Shows the potential to be a gap to gap guy. Good athlete with a really clean swing. How he develops physically will be the main determining factor to his offensive role as he moves forward.

2/17/19 Pitching

Body Type: 5-foot-9 130-pound prospect with a smaller, immature frame.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Throws from a ¾ arm slot. Showed a clean arm action and used his length well. Not much use of his lower half.

Fastball: 73-75 mph fastball was mostly true through the zone with some fading action at times.

Breaking Ball: 61-65 mph breaking ball showed curveball spin with decent shape and depth.

Changeup: 62-63 mph changeup was mostly true with some depth. Did seem to kill spin well on the pitch.

Pitchability: Average feel for his three pitch mix.

Role: Shows somewhat solid secondary offerings for a 2022. Would fit best in the bullpen. 

11/10/18
A good athlete with defensive versatility and upside at the plate.  At the plate he has athletic actions in the box with a loose swing through the zone. Impressive feel for contact, showing the ability to use the entire field. Type of bat that plays multiple roles inside a lineup. Presently has a lead off look to him but could by dynamic as strength arrives. A talented defender who can hold his own in the infield or outfield. Present ceiling looks to be higher in the outfield. Moves well out there with an above average skill set across the board. In the infield he has a middle type skill set that leans to second base. Not a flashy defender but sure-handed.
60-yard dash: 7.09
Outfield Velocity: 79
Exit Velocity: 88
