Slightly closed stance; stiff hands; muscular swing with shoulders; poor pitch recognition; below-average bat speed
Average raw power; present strength; hard contact; plays near full utility at present
Above-average runner; surprising given size; 4.24 home-to-first, no stolen base attempts
Struggles with routes in CF; looks more comfortable in LF; speed has utility with fair range to both sides
Below-average arm; lacks carry on throws; gets to cutoff men fairly quickly
Playing in the Miami organization after being released by the Royals this past off-season, Kjerstad shows an interesting power-and-speed combination. He shows some viable tools, but they lack projection for utility at the big league level. Upper-level depth player.
