SCOUTING REPORT
Kime has a commitment to Louisville, and probably one of my favorite names of the Pirates’ 2010 draft.  He has a 91-92 MPH fastball, but not much in the way of secondary stuff.  Kime throws a curve and a changeup, although both have trouble finding the strike zone.  His curve has a lot of break, making it hard to keep in the strike zone, but getting a lot of chasing swings.  That won’t work for him in the upper levels.  Baseball America rated Kime the #14 prospect in Ohio.  He’s considered to be a tough sign by Baseball America, due to his down year this past season.  Kime comes from the same high school that produced Chad Billingsley and Jonathon Niese.
