President, New York

Our "Player Spotlights" will be reserved for any prospect across New York who's abilities on the field have made some noteworthy recent buzz. Possibly a recent event where a Top Performer Spotlight article is just not enough, or maybe a recent commitment to a major program. Whatever it is, I'll (Dan Cevette) be going in-depth on the player spotlighted below with personal insight and honest feedback. Let's get started.

Justin Guiliano LHP / OF / Ellenville, NY / 2020

CEVETTE'S QUICK HIT: His 60 time won't paint the most accurate picture but Guiliano is one of the more athletic 2020's in the state evidenced by his slam dunking abilities thanks to his instagram page this hoop season. I like the overall rawness, the bat shows some bat-speed and he's just going to keep getting better, but the height to his ceiling on the mound is lofty. LHP with size and current arm-strength with the fastball touching 81 and clear signs of more to come.. A player we will keep a close eye on this spring and summer. That 81 could easily be uppers in 24 months.

SCOUTING REPORT: Long, athletic 6-foot-3 185 pound LHP/OF who ran a 7.47 60  and 4.44 home to 1B. Offensively- Upright setup from the waist up; feet are even and uses a short load/stride fro timing. Sweeping swing path through the zone with semi-aggressive lower half. Could be more explosive with actions but repeats with balance. Exit velocity was 82 MPH from the tee. Pulls side results. Defensively- Gathers himself well, staying behind the ball with a short step-through crow hop. Arm action is long with carry on throws at a peak of 83 MPH from the outfield. Pitching- Demonstrated more polish on the mound with a center rubber setup, pivoting to his glove side. Mid-chest balance point, gathering momentum to the plate while riding back leg. Arm action is long and loose, through a 3/4 slot. A firmer front side and continued accelerated arm speed will help with late life. Sat 79-81 MPH with arm-side run. Curveball featured some late bit with slider tendencies at 64-65  PH. Some feel to change at 73-75 MPH. Projectable southpaw with more in the tank.
