Scouting Report
Vincent Chiarenza, OF, Canisius HS, NY (2016)
Chiarenza stands 6-foot-2, 185-pounds with a great physical build. He was a stood out throughout the position players "Winter Combine" in orchard park January 3rd. Not only did he have the highest Vertical Leap at 30" of the day he also Broad Jumped 8 feet, tied for the fastest Pro agility at 4.41 seconds, and was tied for the 2nd fastest 10 yard dash at 1.75 seconds. He also showed great upper body explosiveness finishing top overall with a 22'10" on the 10lb medicine ball pass. From the outfield Chiarenza sets up behind the ball and comes through his throws with fundamentally sound mechanics. The ball jumps out of his hand and shows good carry after release. At the plate he starts with a strong wide base and uses a very limited stride/load pattern. This kept him compact and direct to the ball which resulted in consistent contact.  He still needs to show more consistent use of his lower half in order to really show next level power but right now he projects as a prototype outfielder at the next level with +quickness and +power potential at the plate. He will be attending the PBR Invite Only event at Oswego February 15th.
