7/21/20

Villano is a big, physical 6-foot-2, 185 pound right-handed hitting infield prospect. He hits out of a narrow, slightly open stance. The load begins with a knee slide to shift the weight over the back leg. The hands push back before heading into the hitting zone. The bat takes a flat path through contact and produced a max exit velocity of 85.2 MPH during the batting practice. He also ran a 7.81 second sixty.

Defensively, Villano worked out at first base and showed a velocity of 69 MPH across the diamond. The young corner infielder has good feet as he works to get into a fundamental fielding position. The glove is in a relaxed position out front. As he transitions through the ground ball, the hands are soft and the hips get into a good line with the target. He finishes through the play using a long arm swing and stays in line with the target.

Exit Velocity- 85 mph
INF Velocity - 69 mph
7/16/20

6-foot-2, 185 pound right handed hitting first baseman. He has done a tremendous job on reshaping his body this offseason. He shows good feel around the bag at first. He threw 70 mph across the diamond during the defensive portion of the workout. He ran a 7.5 sixty at the event. The bat has an exit velocity of 82 mph as he still needs to get physically stronger as he matures in age. The setup is even in base and he uses a knee to knee timing mechanism on the bottom half as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The weight is shifted to the front foot as the swing is produced. The path is flat and the hands work free and clean. 

Exit Velocity- 82 mph

INF Velocity- 70 mph

1/12/20

A very impressive 6-foot-1, 200 pound right-handed hitting corner infielder. He started out with a tee exit velocity of 74 mph.  The stance is athletic, with the hands set in a relaxed position.  The load is triggered by a controlled knee to knee and a seperation of the hands.  The bat-head is loose as it whips through the hitting zone.  There is obvious bat-speed and juice with his swing.

Defensively, he was 68 mph across the diamond.  The feet are deliberate as he works to get into the fielding position.  He breaks down into a balanced fielding position, with the glove in a good spot.  The hands are soft as he fields and transitions to a good throwing position.  As he plays through the ball, he is in line with the target and finishes through his throws.

Tee Exit Velocity- 74 mph

INF Velocity- 68 mph

JUNIOR FUTURES
6-foot, 205-pound right-handed hitting first baseman. Had a good week at the plate with Team Mass. Ran a 8.8 sixty at the event, as the foot speed will improve as he matures. The glove is solid around the bag, and the feet work appropriately. He is reliable at first. Threw 67 mph across the diamond. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 79 mph. The setup is even in base, front foot open to start. The front foot closes down and gains ground to the ball as the swing is produced. The path is long and he uses a 1-handed finish after contact.
