2019 PG South Top Prospect Games at Texas A&M  
Kaden Calkins is a 2020 RHP with a 6-5 195 lb. frame from Aurora, TX who attends Southlake Carroll. Outstanding young pitcher's build, long and loose and lean, very projectable physically. Low effort delivery with a high 3/4's arm slot, arm is loose and tension free coming through, creates angle to the plate, has lower half flexibility with a high balanced leg raise start, has good pace out of the wind up but tends to rush his mechanics out of the stretch. Fastball topped out at 90 mph from the wind up, plenty more there with physical maturity, showed good command of his fastball working it to different quadrants of the zone, mostly straight with occasional cutting action. Nice change up with arm speed and late diving action, can throw this pitch lots more than he did this outing. Showed good spin on his slider with the ability to land it, can also utilize this pitch more often. Has work to do on his stretch mechanics and ability to mix pitches but it's mostly about patience and getting stronger, has a ceiling to him. Good student, verbal commitment to McLennan CC. Named to the South Top Prospect Games Top Prospect List.
