Dane Kinoshita is a 2008 RHP/OF with a 5'10'', 150 lb. frame from Honolulu HI, who attends Mid-Pacific Institute. Selected as a Top Prospect at this event. Kinoshita has an athletic, if not overly big body type. Kinoshita has good body control and is a good athlete, which works well for him on the mound. His arm works well from a high 3/4 arm slot. His arm is loose and quick and he creates good leverage, with extension on the backside, ending with good frontside extension. He has a good delivery, staying over the rubber and pretty consistently repeating his delivery. There may not be much more velocity in the future for Kinoshita, but his mid-80s fastball could see a slight bump up with more core strength. His fastball does have late life and at times can ride on right-handed hitters. His curveball has depth and tight spin, with hard rolling action. It is a potential out pitch. Kinoshita also has a nice change-up that actually could be a splitter. His stuff is good in terms of the action on his pitches, if not necessarily big velocity. He has good mound presence and pitchability that should earn him a spot at the D1 level if he can get enough exposure to D1 coaches and his GPA gets him into schools where his ability fits the level of competition.

Dane Kinoshita is a 2008 RHP/OF from Mid-Pacific Institute, residing in Honolulu, HI with a 5'8" 132 lb. frame. Named to the Top Prospect Team, Kinoshita has a thin and lean body type with loose and lively movements. Though he is not of the preferred or typical body profile, especially for a right hand pitcher, don't let that fool you if you are a small college coach looking for help on the mound. This kid can pitch. Kinoshita's over the top arm stroke creates good leverage and arm speed. He has a loose arm and a clean arm action with good body control and rhythm in his delivery. Kinoshita has excellent command of the fastball (81-84), and in general, good command of all his pitches. It is fun to watch him execute pitches to spots, not just to areas like most young pitchers. His fastball is sneaky good (hitters were frequently late offering at his fastball, and not because of real high velocity) and it rides a bit on the arm side. Kinoshita has two breaking balls, both of them good; a curveball with 12/6 shape and good spin and a slider (71 mph) that has slippery action and good spin. Both have late action. His change-up (mid-upper 60s) feel is also good and he gets late dip action that sort of tumbles. As an offensive player, Kinoshita hits from a square stance and has decent bat speed and some pop for a smallish body. His hands work and drop into the hitting slot as he loads to hit. He has a decent hand path and works to stay inside the ball. On defense Kinoshita displays a strong arm from the outfield and a pretty quick release. If Kinoshita were 6'3" he would be a no brainer prospect for college ball. As it is, he can really pitch and his arm works. He is a very good pitcher and will be an asset to a college team.
