With additional strength and experience, Kirby could develop into a strong starting pitching prospect down the line. His fastball reached 94 at one point last summer, but more typically worked in the upper 80s and peaked at 92 in short bursts. He shows the natural hand speed to develop a quality breaking ball, but struggles to stay on top of the pitch, an issue that could be attributed to his hooked wrist in the back of his arm action. Kirby mixes in a changeup sparingly, but has feel for the offering and can generate late dive on the pitch. He has room to fill in his 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame, and could develop into a more prominent prospect with three years of development in college. He's committed to Elon.
