Kooper Barnes is a 2024 that will catch your attention. She’s an up and coming LHP that is developing nicely. At 61 mph on the fastball, she tosses with good control and command and is able to hit her spots. With continued development in the circle as she continues to grow, she projects nicely and will earn some looks early. She is always smiling and loves to play. A kid with big dreams that come through in her demeanor on the field. Great attitude and an extraordinary teammate, with many other attributes that coaches love. She has sub-3 speed from the left side and hits with good contact as a gap style hitter. Right now, 1B is her primary spot but I fully expect those roles to shift as she develops in the circle. This kid will be on many radars and will make a excellent addition to any roster.
