Scouting Report

8.19.18 PBR Fall Kickoff Showcase Tournament

- 6-foot-1, 220-pound righty sat 83-85 from an over the top arm slot with command of a three pitch mix. The physical junior repeats well and gets downhill with regularity. His curveball with 12/6 shape sat 71-73 with hard, late down action for numerous swinging strikes. Rispoli also displayed a feel for a changeup at 71-74 that he throws at fastball arm speed.
