Downstate Preseason (February 20, 2015)

Piccolino stands 5-foot-11, 165-pounds with a very athletic build. Offensively- Slightly open stance, hands relaxed. On the the pitch he loads back, strides back to even, short compact swing, barrel gets slightly inclined through contact, long extension, high finish. Exit velocity off a tee up to 84 mph. From the OF he charges the ball hard, fields in front of his body, clean funnel and exchange, uses a slight crow-hop, arm action is short and clean, throws from a high-3/4 slot, 83 mph arm strength with carry. He ran a 4.19 home-to-first showing next-level athleticism. Pitching - Piccolino stands 5-foot-11, 165-pounds with a very athletic build. On the mound he uses a side-step, high knee lift that crosses over the rubber, shoulder turn, hands separate at his chest. Drops some on his back leg as he powers forward, arm action is down and quick, works easy, throws from a high-3/4 power slot with a fastball sitting 81 mph – velocity projection. His stride is long, uses good hip and shoulder separation, front side could be a little stronger, finishes over his front knee.

11/1/14 - Piccolino is athletic on the mound (he also ran a 6.89 60-yard dash) and has a quick arm. He strides slightly closed and throws from a low-3/4 slot with occasional recoil. The 5-foot-11, 165-pounder's repertoire included a fastball at 78-81 that had occasional cut and occasional run, a really good sinking change-up at 71-74, and a slurvy breaking ball at 64-68 that had a sweeping action across the entire width of the plate. Piccolino showed well in all facets of the game flashing an 84 mph arm from the outfield with fluid actions. The left-handed hitter displayed a line drive approach at the plate from a square stance with a bat exit velocity of 84 mph. Piccolino consistently squared the baseball to all fields with a direct swing path.
