The profile, which dips into Uvila’s unlikely back story, can be found at tinyurl.com/PDN-UvilaBlog.
It also discusses the role that Kent’s Driveline Baseball training facility has played in his rise from junior college reserve to his status as the Rangers’ 36th-ranked prospect in their entire minor league organization.
The spin Uvila is able to put on his curveball also is discussed.
FanGraphs’ lead analyst Eric Longenhagen also said Uvila possesses “seemingly imminent big-league relevance.”
