Kinziger was among the revelations of the weekend, especially within this Wisconsin 2023 class. A multi-sport standout, especially on the basketball court, Kinziger is a natural on the diamond, too. He’s a raw but projectable shortstop with an innate feel for the speed of the game and the position on defense; he ranges well with smooth actions. He hit in the two-hole for ISA, swinging a loose, athletic, whippy right-handed bat; some twitch in his hands. He launched a deep double to left field in the team’s first game of the weekend against Phenom Wisconsin. He also took the mound on Saturday night in relief where he looked sharp; really quick, athletic arm action from an over-the-top slot. He came out sitting 80-81 mph, settling into the 77-78 range later on, mixing in a tight breaking ball with 12/6 shape. Kinziger is a wiry athlete to watch as he progresses and hones his feel for the game.
