03/10/2013 - College PREP - Bel Air (Baltimore), MD Kaitlyn is a versatile young player who can play both 2B and C. Behind the plate she has soft hands, a strong arm with carry and is smooth in her transition from catch to throw. She gets out from behind the plate well to field bunts and will benefit from improving her set up to be square with feet/shoulders, sticking the pitch with strong wrists and anticipating the ball in the dirt to be on time to block with solid body control. As a 2B, Kaitlyn has similar actions, displaying a strong arm, controlled feet and the ability to cover some ground side to side. Mechanical at times, she will benefit from staying smooth and using her athletic ability aggressively at all times. At the plate, she uses a square set up with a downward load, a long stride and keeps her weight centered before launching to the ball. She stays inside the ball well, uses her lower half and has simple actions that she can repeat. To further develop, she should continue to work at cutting it loose at the plate and being more explosive while working on getting to the inside pitch effectively with her top hand being dominant. Overall, Kaitlyn has a ton of potential and should continue to seek quality reps and coaching to ensure her development steadily progresses.
