Louisiana State commit. 6-foot-1, 180-pounder showcases raw fast twitch actions in everything his does on a baseball field. The right-handed hitter starts from a slightly open stance and initiates his swing with a toe-tap stride. Generates barrel whip with an aggressive hip turn and quck hands through the zone while getting on plane early. Showcased a gap-to-gap approach while making consistent loud contact. Registered a 100 mph bat exit velocity and ran a 6.66 60-yard dash. Foot speed sets up for center field but 92 mph arm strength will play at any outfield position.

6-foot, 170-pound two-way prospect. Kling had the breakout performance of the event, showcasing a well-rounded skill set that will draw the attention of college coaches quickly. The right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and initiates his swing with a short, leg-hang stride. Kling displayed advanced timing and rhythm to his swing with very quick hands in consistently making loud contact during his batting practice round. He registered an 89 mph bat exit velocity and ran an event best 6.51 laser timed 60-yard dash. Showed athleticism defensively as well playing through the baseball routinely with accurate 84 mph arm strength. The primary outfielder topped at 82 mph during his bullpen session.

Kling showcased advanced athleticism during his position workout which translated into potential on the mound. The righty sat 77-82 with a repeatable, loose delivery from a 3/4 arm slot. His curveball at 68-70 showed 11/5 rotation with good depth when he stays on top of the pitch. Currently works with a two-pitch mix, but arm action and athleticism could lead to further development on the mound.
