6/17/23

The younger brother of a former Dodgers draft and Utah Valley RHP-Kayler Yates, who is coming into his own as a college prospect as well. Yates jumped on the scene this past spring at Dixie HS as a solid offensive player w/2B and 3B type extra base power and a lean athletic frame to build upon. A solid mover with long lanky movement patterns as a hustling instinctive defensive OF w/solid jumps and covers ground. A slasher type hitter that impacts the ball hard to the gaps and can carry the OF’ers for xtra bases. A quick hitting stroke that could find himself as a potential two way type at the JUCO level, but his LH arm is making a move to where he could be a very valuable piece in a quality JUCO program or D2 school. The delivery is an old school get into your legs and drive down the slope low to the ground ala an old school drop/drive type. The arm is quick and clean and gets good ext out front with a full finish and solid inline direction to the plate. The FB 83-87 jumps on hitters as he shows a late shoulder turn out front in hiding the baseball and creating deception in his delivery and release point. The CB has solid promise as he can sweep the breaking ball to LHH’s and creates a tough angle to get off good swings. It’s a S/M pitch. Can back door the breaking ball and also bury to RHH’s and gets a ton of swing over and miss action. The CH fades with deception and has heavy arm side run and gets late sink. Solid avg pitch that creates a 3 pitch mix that will be enticing for colleges to grab. Wouldn’t surprise me if he puts on another 10-15 Lbs by next spring if we don’t see some upper 80’s readings approaching 90 mph in the next 6-9 months. Keep a close eye on this kid as he comes from a baseball family with some intriguing bloodlines.
