By Andy Sroka
Illinois and Wisconsin Assistant Director

On Sunday, Feb. 7, Prep Baseball Report will host the 19th edition of its prestigious, flagship event: the Super 60 Pro Showcase. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than 300 players have been selected in the MLB Draft, including 22 first-round picks and 25 second-rounders.

We started our our march toward the Super 60 earlier this month, by highlighting the prospects set to join us, shining a light on their impressive player profiles that they've groomed through their high school years and beyond.

Scouting Report

Notre Dame commit. 5-foot-11, 160-pound right-hander was one of the most intriguing prospects at the event. The underclassman has an athetic frame that still has room to add some strength. Sat 89-91 from a high 3/4 arm slot with hip coil to his delivery. Arm is loose and clean and velocity is generated with significant lower half drive. Fastball showed late arm-side run and life through the zone. Curveball is a quality second offering at 75-77 with 1/5 rotation and solid depth. Changeup at 83-85 is thown with premium arm speed and showed heavy arm-side run. Also showcased a sinker at 88-89 with late glove-side movement. 


Physical: 5-foot-11, 160-pounds. Long limbs, lean, athletic build. 
Pitching Delivery: Builds momentum with high leg lift and slight turn before striding in line, generates advanced torque with lower half while keeping front shoulder in line before accelerating through a repeatable release and follow through.
Arm Action: Long, electric arm action to a 3/4 release.

Kimball stands a lean, wiry 5-foot-11, 165-pounds with size and strength gains expected. Fluid tempo within the delivery, balanced, has a clean quick arm-swing with a high 3/4 release point. He generates a ton of front-side hand-speed, evidenced by his 88-91 mph FB and upper 70's power slider. FB has late action with natural arm-side run. The Notre Dame commitment is the No. 9 ranked player in NY's deep 2021 class, and 313 in the country respectively.  All signs point north for the greater Utica, NY righty.
