PG Grade: 9
Kauten is yet another unknown, or maybe we should say former unknown. This Juco right-hander has a very bright future. A former PG league player that we always liked, he has improved tremendously under the tutilage of former minor league pitching coach Jim VanScoyac at Kirkwood CC. Kauten was consistently in the 88-90 range (we’ve seen him a bit better) and his breaking ball was one of the best in Ft Myers. A sharp two-planer with serious down action in the mid to upper 70s. Kauten surely got himself on the draft lists of those that saw him in Ft Myers. Now the spring will tell just how high he might go.
