Joshua Kaiwi is a 2010 LHP/OF/1B with a 5'11", 157 lb frame from Kailua Kona, HI who attends Kealakehe. He has a long lean lanky body with good athleticism. Joshua pitches from a 3/4 arm slot with a smooth effortless delivery. He has a long arm action and is very deceptive while throwing across his body somewhat. He keeps the ball down in the zone and has good command of his pitches. Kaiwi threw his fastball at 78-83 mph and his slider at 73-77 mph which made him very tough on left handed hitters. He also showed good arm speed on his change up at 76-77 mph. His pickoff move was very deceptive as well. At the plate, Joshua showed quick hands with a good opposite field approach. He also ran a 7.15 60.

Joshua Kaiwi is a 2010 LHP/OF/1B with a 5'10'', 150 lb. frame from Kona HI, who attends Makua Lani Christian HS. He has an average, somewhat narrow frame and a lean, wiry build. Had there been a ranking of 2010 grads at this event, he would have been #1. Kaiwi is a really nice young pitching prospect. He has a good arm action and a quick, loose arm. Kaiwi does have some mechanical flaws to work out and has plenty of time to do so. He strides across his body pretty far, cutting off his hips from working to their fullest and taking away some extenstion. That is a correctable issue. His fastball has plus run and he does create good down angle, even without full extension. Kaiwi understands how to pitch, or at least knows what he wants to do with the basebal. His curveball is big and pretty late, with 67-68 mph velocity. He has good mound presence and is a confident young pitcher. Remember the name because Kaiwi has a chance to be a really good college pitcher. Offensively he has some ability too. He clears his hips, has a nice swing, and showed a good outfield arm. However, his future is on the mound, it would appear.
