Scouting Report

7/26/20

 

Ranked No. 6 in Minnesota and one of the top uncommitted prospects in the Midwest. 6-foot, 205-pound, broad-shouldered, physical, right-handed hitter; primary catcher but showed plenty of athleticism to handle third base. Longo made a number of plays, including starting a double play turn, showing a quick glove-to-hand exchange and feel to throw from multiple slots. Offensively, his strong/physical frame stands out in the box as he swings with intent and hunts the fastball. Longo is a high-level 2021 still on the market.

 

7/07/20

 

Longo excelled with short footwork and a quick release which produced 1.88-2.01 pop times behind the dish, despite fringe average arm strength (75 mph). His throws were on-line and accurate; the most accurate of all catchers at the event. At 6-foot, 205 pounds there was some stiffness to his gait and too much side-to-side motion during his initial acceleration as he sprinted to 7.22 sixty. Despite some effort and stiffness to his swing, the right-handed hitter displayed a balanced approach and solid bat strength (88 mph exit velocity of tee). He hit against a firm front side with good lift and high finish to his stroke.
