6/11/19

6’ 193-pound frame. Starts with square feet, rocking back to load into back side and uses leg kick to get back to square. Lands with soft front knee for adjustability. Keeps hands quiet throughout swing. Occasionally drifts too far forward, making it harder to rotate and match pitch plane. Exit velo at 91 MPH. Behind the plate, you’ll struggle to find a harder worker. Blocks everything regardless of runners on base or what pitch is thrown. Quick footwork around the baseball on throws to second with 1.95-2.07 pop times. Arm strength was at 75 MPH from the crouch.

1/27/19 Uncommitted 6’ 193-pound strong, physical frame. Spallina is the type of player, that despite even having good numbers, scouts will like even more after seeing him play. Toughness showed not only from taking a beating behind the plate but also blocking numerous balls at 1B during the game. Strength shows at the plate during his BP, making hard contact. Had good at bats during the game and showed good feel for 2k adjustments, fouling off tough pitches. Defensively, blocked everything and played with energy with pop times at 1.99-2.07.

6/5/18 - 5-foot-11 174-pound frame. Spallina is a no-doubt DI prospect as a defender behind the plate, posting a best pop time of 1.95 with 75 mph velocity from the crouch. In addition to his throwing ability, Spallina also excels as a receiver and blocks well. The offense is a little further away, but he shows enough strength (89 mph exit velocity) to be a contributor on both sides of the ball. Offensive development will dictate what level prospect he becomes. Also posted a 7.58 60 yard dash.

5/20/18 - 5-foot-11, 174-pound frame with present, proportional strength. Stands out defensively behind the plate where his throws show on-line carry and solid footwork allowed him to post a best pop time of 1.96 with 75 mph velocity. Advanced blocker and quiet receiver could catch at the college level early in his career. Offensive rhythm is somewhat inconsistent, at times using a toe tap and other just a traditional stride to post 81 mph exit velocity. Hits from somewhat narrow base and could benefit from starting slower and earlier with a more solid, athletic lower half. Shows enough strength and bat speed to be offensive contributor, especially when considering potentially high-end defense. Turned in 7.45 60-yard dash.

5/19/18 - He was a sophomore starter behind the plate for a very strong Verrado club that lost in the state finals. An advanced defender, Spallina is a quiet receiver, and showed 75 mph arm strength from the crouch with on-line carry; 2.07 best pop. Shows a short swing and flat path in the box, producing line drive contact to the pull side in BP. Somewhat inconsistent rhythm makes swing appear rigid at times. Offensive development will be key to reaching ceiling as a prospect. Top catcher at event.
