President, New York

Our "Player Spotlights" will be reserved for any prospect across New York who's abilities on the field have made some noteworthy recent buzz. Possibly a recent event where a Top Performer Spotlight article is just not enough, or maybe a recent commitment to a major program. Whatever it is, I'll (Dan Cevette) be going in-depth on the player spotlighted below with personal insight and honest feedback. Let's get started.

Kyle Wayman OF / RHP / Horseheads, NY / 2020

CEVETTE'S QUICK HIT: The raw tools are evident from the Southern-Tier prospect. More games under his belt will help shape those tools, already present bat-speed and some power to the gaps at the plate. The arm has some athleticism out in front and expect to see his arm-velocity continue to increase. Overall, nice looking sophomore prospect to keep your eyes on. 

SCOUTING REPORT: Kyle stands 6-foot-2, creeping on the 180 pound mark with signs of athleticism. on the day his measurable numbers were impressive,  running a 4.33 home-to-first, 79 mph arm velocity from the outfield, and a well above average exit velocity of 93 mph.  at the plate he uses a slightly upright wide stance, relaxed hands by his back shoulder, small stride on the pitch for timing, barrel is direct with a slight uphill path full extension producing above-average bat speed with power projection in his future.  defensively, gets the ball on his glove side, body behind his throws, 3/4 slot, shows pretty low effort level to his arm speed but still generating 79 mph indicating plenty more in the tank when he becomes more aggressive.  he also work from the mound with a simple paste with delivery, throws from a high 3/4 slot with a Fastball The peaks at 79 mph, curveball shows advanced spin, 12/6 action.
