Kalk is a strong 6-foot-0, 190-pound catcher who had a multi-hit game at our showcase on Tuesday. The lefty looked very comfortable in the batters box, as he began with an upright and open stance. A falling load with a short stride allowed Kalk to barrel and elevate the baseball, as he showcased at our Madison Preseason ID earlier in the year. The uncommitted catcher had two hits, an RBI, and a run scored in the game. Defensively, Kalk had consistent pop times that ranged between 2.03-2.13 seconds, which were some of the fastest among catchers. The to-be senior raised his stock on Tuesday and will be a player to watch for at the 17U PBR at the Rock Summer Championship this weekend.
