Pizzo stands 5-foot-9 175-pounds with a solidly built frame. At the plate he starts wide with some weight shifted on his back side and he keeps his hands high. On the pitch he uses a back load, heel lift and stride before driving his hands inside the ball with a short path. His bat plane is slightly inclined through the zone and his finish is shoulder height with some recoil. He shows signs of a powerful swing generating 84 mph off a tee exit velocity. At 3B he has smooth, clean actions to the ball, funnels the ball to his belt with a clean transfer. He uses a short arm action to a low 3/4 slot showing above average arm strength at 82 mph. Fun player to keep an eye on.
