Notes

7/14/22

Perez hosts an athletic frame 5-foot-10, 180-pounds with some strength in his lower half. Currently ranked inside the Top 15 prospects in his home state and is set to represent Illinois at the Future Games later this month. Impressed with his whippy bat speed, hugging the pull-side line and hustling out a triple. Also showed natural actions in the infield with athleticism that is apparent on defense. 

6/08/22

INF Kenny Perez (De LaSalle, 2024) was another big winner for the day, walking around with a bounce to his step and ultimately earning an invitation to the PBR Future Games. Defensively he is a savvy, confident defender, playing with sound, smooth actions and flare. He has soft, quick hands with a lightning quick exchange; feet are quick and allow him to take direct routes to ground balls.  His arm plays short and quick arm, also playing from multiple arm angles. Offensively, that same fluidity translates into the right-handed box where he has pre-pitch movement and an athletic, aggressive swing that is long through the zone. Perez is one of the top uncommitted infielders in the state.

4/23/22

Uncommitted. 5-foot-10, 160-pound, well-proportioned, right-handed hitting infielder, currently ranked No. 30 in the Illinois’ 2024 class. Hit in the four-hole and started at third base. Looks to be one of the top uncommitted position players in the 2024 class. Defensively, has all the actions and tools to be a high-level defender moving forward. Plays with ease, confidence and light, active feet. Hands play soft, works from the ground up and ranges with body control. Made a slow roller, run through play down the third base line look extremely easy and routine. Arm plays quick, loose and accurate across the diamond. Offensively, hits with fluid rhythm and confidence. Loose, athletic swing, gets extension through contact and can drive the ball to all fields with authority. Homered over the right-field fence in his first at-bat. Flew out to center field with authority in his next two at-bats. High-follow 2024 uncommitted infielder.

2/26/22

There were a number of high-level infield defenders who showed well throughout the day, but Kenny Perez (De La Salle, 2024), arguably, sat at the top of the list. Perez carries himself with confidence and has all the makings to be a top-level shortstop in the class. He plays light on his feet with a bounce in his step and a natural flair to his game. His hands are soft and ultra-confident, he moves with ease, playing with body control on the move, and he can throw from any angle (84 mph high). The right-handed hitter ran a 7.20 in the 60 and he also put together an impressive round of BP. Perez uses a small leg-lift load with loose, fast hands and he creates natural loft with the ability to create backspin off the barrel at times. The 5-foot-9, 140-pounder possesses advanced bat strength for his size and age, leading the event in average batted ball distance at 299 feet, and his furthest batted ball traveled 351 feet. Perez also recorded a max exit velocity of 96.9 mph, an average of 91.0, generating a sweet spot rate of 90 percent. High-level 2024 prospect on the rise coming out of the event.
