Before the new year, many PBR states take the time to highlight the most viewed player profiles during the previous year from their respective areas. These views can come from scouts, coaches, players, family, etc. Coaches & scouts even have the ability to do advanced searches for players from our dashboard using key metrics & parameters. PBR has the ability to track how many views are going into each profile for personal use. Before the new year, we will be highlighting the Top-10 most view player profiles of 2020.

Today, we highlight the No. 7 spot on our list for Nevada:

Scouting Report

8/18/19

TCU Commit 6-foot-3 195. Simply put, DiLandri is “tooled up”. He has present strength in an athletic build that is well proportioned. He consistently runs well, but due to some tenderness sat out the 60-yard dash this time around. He has electric bat speed, posting an event best 101 MPH exit velocity off the tee. His first swing in BP drove the ball beyond the fence. At times there is so much strength and bat speed, he can be a little short through the zone, but contact is loud to the middle and pull side of the field consistently. Defensively, DiLandri has a strong arm with a positional velocity of 89. He has a longer exchange with some violence to his throwing action but his arm strength makes up for any loss of time in transition. His tools provide the ability to profile at all three outfield spots and be a middle of the order type bat at the next level.

DiLandri is a 2-way prospect going into his junior year. The TCU commit is physically gifted with an athletic body that definitely looks the part on the ball field. On the mound, Thomas displayed good mound awareness with a smooth, clean delivery. Staying back over the rubber during leg lift, Thomas gathers and accelerates down the mound into foot plant, with good shoulder/hip separation. Arm action is clean with plenty of arm strength, throwing from a 3/4 slot, Thomas FB clocked in 88-90 touching 91. Thomas did not throw any breaking pitches but did use his CH 79-81, as his off speed out. Thomas will be one to follow in the 2021 class of prospects.

2/10/19 -TCU commit. Physical, 6-foot-2, 195, Di Landri has a strong, athletic build with present strength and quickness.  Di Landri is ‘tooled up”.  He ran a 6.6 60-yard dash which provide him the ability to stay in centerfield.  His outfield actions reveal an advanced awareness of footwork and rhythm. He employed and added shuffle in most instances to accommodate his positional velocity of 90 mph.  Body control and consistent rhythm will provide for more true and accurate throws, but the tools are present.  At the plate, Di Landri strength and electric bat speed illustrated by his event best 105 mph exit velocity, provide power potential beyond his years.  He consistently made loud contact after settling in.  He sets and loads with a high back elbow, taller in stature, employing a leg kick trigger and tipping the barrel toward the pitcher.  He whips the bat throw the zone with authority. Easy to see why he has already accepted a Division 1 offer, but chances are the MLB will be knocking as well
