LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2007 National Showcase  
Kyle Skipworth is a 2008 C/3B/OF with a 6'3'', 195 lb. frame from Riverside, CA who attends Patriot HS. He has a long and rangy body that hasn't begun to get strong yet. Skipworth established himself firmly as the top high school catching prospect in the 2008 class at the National. His left handed bat would make him a top prospect at any position. He has a loose, easy swing and keeps his hands short and quick to the ball. Skipworth hit the ball hard to all fields and showed plus pull power when he got a pitch on the inner half. There really isn't anything he needs to do to continue advancing as a hitter except to keep getting stronger. We're told Skipworth doesn't have extensive catching experience but his physical tools and comfort level catching are impressive and his arm strength excellent (87 mph in drills!). Skipworth's pop times aren't in the elite class but he throws easy and under control without any workout cheat to him. Skipworth showed his speed on a couple of gapper's and runs and moves with athletic quickness and agility. There will be plenty of comparisons to Joe Mauer between now and the 2008 draft. Selected to 2007 Aflac All-American team.
