Curveball showed 10/4 shape at 68-70 mph. Changeup had some armside fade at 77 mph. Slow, methodical delivery, tall balance point - then sinks into back knee as he drives down the mound.

Bettio is physically built at 6-foot-1 195-pounds. Recorded the top Exit Velocity at the event at 87 mph and the top outfield velocity at 84 mph. Offensively- sets up with a slightly opened stance and weight evenly balanced. Tall, narrow set up.  Hands are above shoulder with bat flat and parallel with the ground. As pitch comes in, Bettio uses a a big stride and cocks hands up and back for a load. Gets deeper into a crouch as weight is shifted to back leg. Aggressive swing with average hand speed. Defensively- recorded throws up to 84 mph from outfield. Attacks ground balls with momentum heading toward home plate. Fields ball on outside of gloveside foot helping him maintain direction toward target as he goes to throw. Pitching- topped at 81 mph, sat mostly 79-80. Showed a small 10/4 breaking ball at 63-67 mph, and a changeup with some armside fade at 72-73. Slow delivery, drop and drive type pitcher when he gets to balance point. True 3/4 arm slot with a long arm action. Can get more velocity and extension if he can finish over front leg. Finishes pitches standing up instead of out front or with backside following through, cuts himself off. Simple fix with stride length and added lower body strength. Interesting prospect with some projectability.
