2021 MLB DraftA Tennessee bounce back from Iowa Western JC, the 6-foot-4, 210-pounder runs his fastball up to 98 and will sit an easy 92-94 with run and sink. He can also break out an 89-90 cutter that plays perfectly off of his fastball, busting it in on the hands of left-handed hitters. He also possesses a high-spinning (up to 2600 rpm) 78-80 mph slider. It's an above average pitch and very effective against same-side batters. He will also mix in an above-average mid-80s fading changeup, mostly using it against left-handed hitters. With good deception to his delivery, Kohlhepp struck out 65 in 61 innings of work to go along with a 7-2 record and 3.08 ERA.

10.23.16 - Made a big splash at the Prep Baseball Report Future Games in August when the left-handed hitting shortstop took the mound for a brief one-inning stint. The appearance made him one of the biggest winners at the Future Games, and shortly after he committed to Arkansas. On Sunday, Kohlhepp took the mound for another one-inning outing for the Reds Midwest Scout Team during their 2-0 win over the Braves Scout Team. Once again, Kohlhepp tantalized with his intriguing upside. At 6-foot-2, 170 pounds, Kohlhepp is wiry thin with long limbs. Working from a low-3/4 slot, he produces wicked run on his 87-88 mph fastball. Move importantly, his 78-80 mph slider shows potential to be a big-time swing-and-miss pitch when he harnesses the late sweeping action on it.
