The Yankees selected the burly right hander in the 5th round of the 2010 Draft out of Lynn University.
There's a lot to like about a strong right-hander throwing an easy 94-96 out of the pen and touching 98 a bunch of times as well. Kahnle throws from a high 3/4 slot and throws the ball downhill with consistency. He's reliever in the long term, which he's easily better suited for. His struggles with a curveball and lousy command are his only problem, but he's still young and not considered anywhere near ready at this point.
He really attacks hitters which was something he failed to do until his final year in college. The 6'1 220 pounder has some upside and would be a great future addition to the Bombers. As for now, he's coming off a great stint in his first pro season at Staten Island. Look for him in Charleston, Tampa, or even Trenton at some point this year.
In 16 innings in 2010, he struck out 25, walked 5, and posted a 0.11 ERA.
