RHP Michael Scarpelli (Libertyville, 2023) tossed one of the more polished bullpens on the day. From his projectable and athletic 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame, the righty wraps his wrist out of the glove before transitioning into a clean, high ¾ arm slot. He moves athletically down the mound with a drop/drive lower half, striding in-line to the plate. His fastball sat 82-83 mph, topping out at 84, featuring noteworthy sink at the bottom of the zone, fit with feel for the outer edges of the plate. He displayed a curveball at 67-70 mph, with slurve-type traits in an 11/5 shape along with impressive control of the strike zone. Scarpelli rounded out his impressive three-pitch mix with a fading changeup at 75-77 mph, thrown with fastball intent that he also kept down in the zone, helping paint a complementary picture of his profile as a pitcher now, and at the next level.
