Drafted in the 34th round (1025th overall) by the Cincinnati Reds in 2014
Kish, the younger brother of Florida Southern outfielder Colin Kish, benefited from playing alongside Germantown star Sean Coyle, which gave scouts plenty of opportunity to see him. Loose and projectable at 6-foot-3, 192 pounds, Kish sat in the 88-91 mph range and touched 92 this spring, and he did a better job holding his velocity deep into games as the spring progressed. He has an easy arm action that leads scouts to believe he can throw harder as he fills out, though at times his textbook delivery can be almost too mechanical. He does a good job pitching off his fastball and has an excellent feel for pitching with his two-pitch repertoire, which also includes an average curveball with three-quarters tilt that projects as a potential plus pitch. He shows feel for a changeup but seldom needed to throw it against overmatched Northeast high school competition. Kish has the talent to be drafted in the top five to seven rounds, but his signability is clouded by a commitment to Florida, where he could be a quality two-way player (he also plays third base).
