05/19/2013 - College PREP - Gaffney, SC Kaylee is an athletic SS with soft hands and good instincts. She is a sure handed defender with active feet in her pre pitch and has a throwing arm that produces accurate results. She takes good angles to the ball, makes good feeds on double plays and will benefit from having earlier glove position out front with her fingers down and stepping to her target to eliminate tendency to throw across her body. She shows solid bag presence and should continue to work on approaching the ball aggressively but under control and being vocal to ensure her teammates are on the same page. At the plate, Kaylee uses a square set up with a downward load, short stride and keeps her weight back before launching her short swing to the ball. She has athletic actions in the box, can make adjustments and is capable of hitting the ball to all fields but will do so more consistently if she uses her lower half more aggressively with improved timing. She has some feel for the bunt game and should continue to work on seeing the ball deeper to hit and maintaining a good bat angle when bunting to allow her to pressure defenses in more way than one. Overall, kaylee showed good athleticism, great body language and clearly has some natural instincts which when combined with hard work could give her a chance to compete for a spot at the next level.
