Bryan Kloetzke is a 2005 catcher/third baseman/right handed pitcher from Woodbury, Minnesota, with a solid 6'0", 185 lb. frame. Kloetzke worked out at many positions and showed solid arm strength at each. He had solid pop times from a low arm angle behind the plate. Offensively he hits from an upright stance and commits a little early with his forward weight shift. He shows plus power potential and would benefit from keeping his weight back improving his already very impressive power. On the mound he throws from a 3/4 arm slot with a short arm arc. He has a power delivery with a high leg kick and solid mechanics. His fastball is 79-80 mph with a good downward plane. Kloetzke's curveball was 65-67 mph with decent break from a 10 to 4 angle. Kloetzke shows plus power potential that would play large at the next level. He can really hit!

Bryan Kloetzke: Kloetzke hit the ball harder and more consistently than any hitter on the second day of the Showcase. He’s a very strong junior catcher from Minnesota who has a lot of confidence in his hitting ability and he should from the looks of it. Kloetzke has very busy feet in his set up and gets out on his front foot very quickly, but his hands and forearms are so strong that he still generates good MLB bat speed on a short, quick swing. Kloetzke hammered off speed pitches and fastballs on the outer half from this approach. The ball made a different sound coming off Kloetzke’s wood bat than any other of the second day hitters. Defensively, Kloetzke caught top prospect Eric Cordier and his big league stuff and handled it well. He certainly has the strength and build to be a durable receiver. Kloetzke has developing arm strength and touched 80 mph off the mound and 72 mph on his pop times. One of the top hitting prospects in the midwest!
