If Kimball hadn’t transferred to P27 Academy in South Carolina, he would have made life even more difficult for area scouts in the Northeast who are dealing with one of the strongest draft classes they’ve seen in years. Kimball was originally from upstate New York and is committed to Notre Dame, but scouts really liked his quick arm and low-90s fastball over the summer. Add in the fact that he won’t turn 18 until September and plenty of scouts expected him to be drafted and signed out of that Notre Dame commitment. However, Kimball’s stuff backed up a tick this spring and he is a bit undersized for pro ball at 5-foot-11, 170 pounds. A team could still take a chance on him because he’ll throw a solid slider, has feel for a changeup and has a history of filling up the strike zone.
