Scouting Report

1/5/19
Diodati had one of the most impressive summers of any Canadian hitter as he performed at many events throughout 2018 and saw himself de-commit and then sign with Alabama. The left-handed hitting Diodati is a power bat that showed more feel for the hit tool in 2018 and capped off his season with a strong offensive performance in Jupiter and a bronze medal at the world championships. Physical and muscular frame, the bat carries him at the moment as he will see time behind the dish, at first base and even some left field. If he continues to develop behind the dish, Diodati will get many looks come June and could see his stock rise and continue the trend of Canadian catchers with juice from the left side. Will get an early look at Diodati at the Super 60 in February

The big, muscular, left-handed hitting catcher put on a show during BP in workout day, peppering the grass beyond the right field fence and even going over the scoreboard, showing the strength and power Diodati possesses from the left side. All 3 of his hits during the week were loud, with a big double that was kept in the park due to the wind vs. Team Ohio. Has improved defensively behind the plate, becoming more agile side to side and the arm adding more strength since the early spring, showing better carry on his throws from the crouch. Diodati opened eyes at the Future Games and has put himself on the map nationally.

Diodati improved tremendously since we last saw him. Now 6-foot-3, 200-pounds, the left-handed hitting catcher has muscular frame with current strength that is unusual for his age. Shows power from the left side at the plate, aggressive hitter who looks to generate to contact and works more to pull side. Bat speed to go along with strength, whips barrel through the zone and when lower half stays involved, it was a different sound coming off the bat. Behind the plate, was a 1.93 from the crouch, footwork is quicker and more online towards bag, ball came out clean with carry and accuracy with life to his throws. All areas have improved and Diodati is turning into one the top prospects in Ontario's 2019 class. 
60-Yard Dash: 7.40
Exit Velocity: 97
C Velocity: 81
Pop Time: 1.93

Physical catcher with strength and size at 6-foot-2, 190-pounds, raw actions but bat speed, footwork, and transfer can all play. Can get long at times with arm, pop times are in the 2.15 and 2.25 range. Left-handed bat that has some pop, will be interesting to watch develop.
