2019 Scout Day: Diamond Hit Club - Sneak Peek

Positional Prospects

Nick Bonnizzio 3B / OF / Twinsburg, OH / 2020

Body Type: 6-foot, 175-pound athletic frame with physicality.
Swing Mechanics:
Tall stance. Goes with a leg kick for timing while keeping hands simple through pitch recognition and into swing decision.
Hit: Compact level stroke that plays to all fields. Finds the barrel often. Sprayed it to the middle/opposite field at the beginning of his round before ramping up intent towards the end of the round, displaying some pull side power.
91 mph exit velocity. Fast bat with heavy hands through the zone. Loft power to pull side with gap abilities to opposite field. Ball comes off well.
Offensive Projection:
Multiple Roles, Run Producer
7.09 60-yard dash.
Plays under control with fluid actions in the outfield. Mechanically sound with a one-handed play through. Ball skills look to be on par for class. Good athlete. Also worked out at third base. Looks more natural in the infield. Moves well with rhythmic feet. Ball skills are more than enough for the third base position.
81 mph from the outfield and 80 mph across the diamond. Short, clean arm action with above average strength. Throws were on target for the most part. Arm grades higher at third base.
Defensive Projection:
3B/Corner OF.
Additional Comments:
Athleticsm shows up all over the field and at the plate. Outfielder/3B hybrid that will likely be above average at whichever destination he ends up at in college. One of the top hit tools we saw on the day as well. Lefty swinger with some electricity in the bat with a knack for finding the barrel.
