He's got a bizarre delivery from the windup -- kind of a half-stretch. Not a big deal. Otherwise, he's very smooth and the breaking ball looks strong..
Funny thing, I think Mark Serrano, released by the Reds this spring, is Kyle's brother.
Hopefully the Reds ended Mark's tenure with the Reds on a good note so that Kyle would give the Reds a chance to sign him. Kyle Serrano is the kind of kid I want the Reds to target. I don't mind BA's other option, though. Tim Anderson may be a bit of a reach at #27, but I like the idea of a shortstop who has a decent chance of sticking at the position and hitting in the bigs.
