Scouting Report

8/03/21

 

VA/DC Unsigned Senior Games

Kruse is 5-10 with an athletic 195 pound frame that has strength present in it. He hits from the right side from a balanced athletic stance, leg kick stride on line, short load back to a wrap. Hips rotate completely with some violence and he maintains some lower half balance. Hands stay inside, quick to the ball, uphill swing path with a strong contact point and extension through the ball, showed a pull approach and he shows power that way, swing generates natural loft and carry, exit velocity was 91. In the outfield, gets body behind the ball and fields through it with above average hands, very quick clean exchange, throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, short arm action, position velocity was 76. Ran a 7.36 60 yard dash.
