11/10/18 - California Sr. Games. Five-foot-8, 165 pounds. Small, strong, compact frame. 2-way player that displays athleticism at both positions. Narrow stance, with leg kick trigger. Exhibits excellent bat speed and showed the ability to spray balls to all fields in his batting practice round. Currently a line-drive hitter that will produce high 2B totals. Defensively, throws were accurate to first base with carry and zip. Makes clean transfers, has a quick release, and can throw from all angles. Much of the same from previous pitching reports, however, with an uptick in velocity. On the mound Max featured his 3-pitch mix (FB, CB, CH). Max touched 86 today, something we haven't seen from him in previous viewings. He displayed excellent poise and energy in his outing today. Looks like his pitch offerings are ramping up just in time for fall baseball. Will be an impact player for Liberty this year.
8/1/18 - Five-foot-8, 165-pounds, strong, muscular, defined lower half, squared shoulders with proportional strength. Strong hands, forearms. Capello shows athleticism on the dirt with fluid footwork, soft hands, and aggressiveness in attacking balls and playing through them. Understands the nuances of playing shortstop. At the plate he's short to the ball while showing a very quiet approach. Keeps head down on the ball and uses a leg kick trigger. Sprays ball to all fields on a line drive. Shows a gap-to-gap approach. On the mound he keeps everything down in the zone and flashes command of his three pitches. Uses a compact delivery from a high ¾ slot with regular effort. Fastball shows some arm side run and consistently on a downhill plane. Curveball has 11/5 shape and late break.
8/1/18 - Five-foot-8, 165-pounds, small, sturdy frame with defined musculature throughout particularly through the thighs. Compact arm action in the back with a hint of a cupped wrist through to a high ¾ arm slot. Arm is quick and loose. Deliberate delivery with a high leg lift before landing square to target in an athletic position with some recoil to the arm. Fastball has sinking action on a downhill plane showing the ability to spot it side-to-side. Curveball has tight spin with late sharp breaking action and 1/7 shape to it. Pitch projects to be above average. Cappello is also an above average middle infielder with the ability to make throws from multiple angles and shows a quiet approach with sneaky power at the plate.
7/19/18 @ NCTB Upperclass Tourney - Multiple reports from different scouts at the tourney: Can handle himself in the box as he looks relaxed and loose and makes solid contact every time. He has good on the bases speed and can take an extra base when he wants when he gets on. His defensive skills are solid. He could be a little smoother with his transitions, but overall he is a strong player with abilities to impact the game in multiple ways. /// Stocky ballplayer that always looks to compete. He has nice footwork and quick hands in the infield. Seems to want the ball hit to him and can take charge In the field. Strong arm throwing across the diamond with quick reactions. Can spray the ball all over the field. Has a quality eye and does a good job with pitch selection. Aggressive on the base path that can read balls in dirt. Also pitches that maxed out at 82 but sits 79-81 with a firm fast ball. Likes to work in and can work down in the zone. Change-up is a great set up pitch and uses it well in mid counts. Sits between 72-74. Also has a nice curve ball with late action. Sits 69-71 and can use it any time in the count. Works fast with a good tempo and has a solid pick off move.
