Anthony Mozzicato LHP / OF / East Catholic, CT / 2019
Rankings StateRank: 130 / POS: 8
Scouting Notes: A lanky southpaw with a promising three pitch mix, Mozzicato began his tournament with a bang after putting together a complete game shutout. Working with a simple, repeatable delivery, he ran into a bit of trouble early, escaping a bases loaded jam in the first. From there, Mozzicato controlled the game, filling up the zone with strikes and getting ahead early. The fastball topped out at 84 MPH early but primarily sat 80-81 MPH. He also went to his 1/7 curveball early, which has the potential to serve as a swing-and-miss pitch at the college level, coming in between 69-73 MPH. At times he can leave the pitch up in the zone which could be dangerous against hitters at the next level, but it is something to be worked on. The curveball was the primary offspeed pitch over the first few innings, but after the third Mozzicato switched things up and began going to his changeup more often. The changeup comes in between 73-75 MPH, and while inconsistent with movement, Mozzicato was able to locate the pitch and throw it with the same arm speed as his fastball. At its best it gets some armside fading action. There is no wipeout pitch in his repertoire, but there is potential for three above average offerings. An uncommitted 2019 to go watch for teams looking to add a left-hander to their recruiting class.
