7/31/14: 5-foot-10, 150 pound, SS/2B, has an athletic frame that will allow for strength to be added.  Kane showed clean fielding mechanics with good agility to balls hit to his left/right.  As he fills out his frame his arm should be able to increase in strength.  Offensively, Kane had a strong, athletic stance.  He displayed a solid load and stride that allowed him to consistently get the barrel to the baseball. With the addition of a higher finish to his swing path he should project as a strong gap hitter.
