Scouting Report:

from Don Olson on 6/18/2013

Kevin is a massive guy with a wide muscular frame, who should be a good deal bigger than his brother CJ, but carries it well.  He shows plus-plus raw power and the bat speed is displayed in BP.  He is a strong 5 O’ clock guy that has to improve his approach; he needs to stay back and start working to right field to get him on the solid path.  Kevin showed a pull oriented swing in game at bats this spring, really a fastball only swing that role over on any break.  He has trouble with the outside, clear hole in the approach.  Gets weight over too quickly, leaving him off balanced with poor swings on change ups and sliders.  The kid is a strong ox and it does not take much behind his swing to connect with power.  Any ironing out in the approach, he could grade out in the first round.
