Drafted in the 11th round (320th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2021 (signed for $175,000)
Kent entered the season as a top-100 prospect in the class thanks to his bat-to-ball skills, hitting ability and above-average speed as a middle infielder. He fell down draft boards significantly after hitting .242/.339/.394 through 60 games and looking a bit lost at the plate. Kent will have to hit for a high average or get on base at a solid clip to provide offensive value because he has below-average power. Prior to this season, he’d shown a good ability to do that, and he does still control the zone well—with 29 walks to 32 strikeouts—but scouts have real questions about his hitting ability now. Additionally, he’s probably going to be a second baseman in pro ball thanks to fringy arm strength. He still could be a later-round selection for a team that buys into his very solid collegiate track record of hitting and thinks this year is more of an outlier than anything.
