Scouting Notes:

2013 Tournament of Stars Notes from Don Olsen:

Keaton is the ideal power pitcher frame with the wide sloped shoulder, good torso/leg ratio.  Present development that could fill into 235-240 pounds and throws out a similar feel to Noah Syndergaard.  He is a good fast twitch athlete that moves well off the mound, very quick feet for size.  Fastball has decent movement, good plane that was 89-92 (93) mph, throws well out of the stretch as well; arm speed and strength are solid.  Split type change up showed some depth to it, good deceptive offering to project 81-82 mph.  Curve, 77-78 mph, had decent rotation with a little glove side movement, should round out into at least average offering.  He is an interesting high caliber pitcher with more velocity down the line; flashes two solid plus offerings.
