Over 51 career games, he has hit 18 home runs and has struck out just seven times. His bat is his calling card, but he is a good athlete with a strong enough arm to hold down a corner outfield spot.

Kyle has shown an incredible ability to swing for the fences while hardly missing a pitch. Over the last two years, he has hit 18 home runs and has struck out just seven times over 51 games. His size suggests even more power will come as he matures, and he has great instincts in the outfield.

Committed to Florida.      http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2015-mlb-draft-armour-aa-game-preview-part-1/43804#O6zgsDyBeLLBfCWU.99
