The setup is wide in base, big aggressive swing. The front foot steps into the swing, hands work quickly, bat path is uphill. The path needs to be flattened to fit the skill set.

5-foot-8, 165 pounds, lean, athletic build with strong legs and average proportions. Ran a 7.05 sixty yard dash. A right-handed hitter, Tedesco stands even in the box with bend at the knees and a wide base. The lead foot plants early as the torso rocks back, while the hands remain steady right above the shoulders in hitting position. Strong on the backside with some bat speed, accelerates through contact with a two hand finish. Bat path can get steep and uphill, and begins with some wrap, tinkering with positioning could help the bat get into the zone quicker. He singled, doubled, and walked in game play. His tee exit velocity reached 82 MPH and should continuing climbing as he heads into his junior season.

5-foot-8, 165-pound, strong, athletic frame put together well, has strength throughout. A right-handed hitting outfielder, top tool is his ability to square up the baseball and throws above average from the outfield. At the plate the stance is wider, with more weight on the backside, hands are held at shoulders, hands and wrists are strong, bat starts in good tilted, loaded position. The swing is short to contact, stays through it and finishes high with two hands above the shoulders. The approach is more to the pull side, looks to have enough pop to get the ball deep into the pull alley. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 76 mph, the batting practice round was impressive, made hard solid contact. Defensively, is advanced, arm is a legit tool, clocked at 85 mph, baseball jumps out of his hand, throws are on a line and with very good carry. The footwork looks to correct, uses more of a shuffle, gets the body moving quickly which adds to the velocity of the throws, stays behind the baseball. Good follow, athletic, looks to be able to play on both sides of the field.

Tee Exit Velocity: 76 MPH
Arm Velocity: 85 MPH

5-foot-8, 155 pounds, looks the part if an athlete, in process of filling out frame, time for more growth and strengthening of the lower half. Tedesco has some straight line speed. His athleticism should allow him to play any outfield slot and his clocked arm speed at 75 mph could become an asset as he fills out. The routes and angles to the baseball were good and has very little wasted movement in the transfer.  He has a short swing without any extraneous movement. A line drive hitter, Tedesco has an up the middle approach and was comfortable going the other way when the ball was on the outer half of the plate. There is minimal power in his current profile. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 78 mph, with a more in there. Adding strength will be key to his development as a hitter, allowing him to take advantage of his short swing to drive the ball with authority rather than rely on poking the ball into open holes. 

Home - First: 4.33
Exit Velocity: 78 mph
Arm Velocity: 75 mph

5-foot-8, 155-pound, smaller, wiry strong athletic frame. The hands, wrists and legs have strength and quickness to them. A right-handed hitter, has simple balanced approach, drove the baseball to all fields, making solid contact in all rounds of batting practice. The feet are inline, slightly wider than shoulder width, hands are loose just above shoulder height, bat starts in more of a flat position. For timing uses a controlled minimal, straight stride, hands have separation from the body. The swing path is down to level to up, keeps his hands inside the baseball, with the barrel in the zone for a long time. The finish is with two hands, bat speed is above average for his age. Defensively, has quick feet and a solid approach into the baseball from outfield, transfer is quick, arm action is short fast, arm works out of a ¾ to high ¾ slot, clocked at 80 mph, ball comes out of his hand with ease. Off the mound, this right-handed pitcher has simple, controlled delivery, pitches from the set position the entire time. The hands start low and work in sync with high leg raise. The separation is on time, stride foot is long, backside stays strong, gets squared up to the plate on release. The arm action is longer, with a small jab at the bottom of the path, showed to have some hand speed out front on release, fastball was clocked at 73-75 mph. The arm works out of a ¾ slot, pounded the fastball to both sides of the plate. Throws a knuckle curve for the breaking ball, clocked at 65-66 mph, spin is right, good downward break. The changeup showed fade to the arm side, clocked at 70-71 mph. Times to the plate were at 1.3. Two-way player at the moment, time will tell which side he goes, like the athleticism and passion.

Thirty-Yard Dash: 3.85
Exit Velocity: 82 mph
Arm Velocity: 80 mph

An outfielder, Tedesco showed some first step quickness and good reads off the bat during gameplay. His throws were clocked up to 85 MPH with carry and accuracy, though he can pull off a bit at times. The feet can shuffle a bit transitioning from fielding to throwing. Refinement in these areas and some added footspeed would allow him to profile as a plus defender in center field. With further development, Tedesco could jump up the rankings given some of these measurable tools.

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.05
Exit Velocity: 82 mph
