Downstate Unsigned Senior (October 21, 2017)

Mundo checks in at 5-foot-10 170 pounds having ground 2 inches and gaining 10 pounds in the past year. He ran a 7.29 60. Offensively- Sets up in an even and balanced stance with quiet timing mechanisms; stays behind the ball with an all fields approach and two-handed finish. Exit velocity up 3 MPH from his previous best at 80 MPH. Defensively-Active feet to and through the ball; quick shuffle step maintaining his momentum into his throws which peaked at 81 MPH across the diamond, a significant improvement from past events. 2B/3B projection at the college level.
Downstate Fall Preview (October 2, 2016)
Mundo Jr.,a 2018 right-handed hitting third-baseman, stands at 5-foot-8 and weighs a solid 160 pounds, ran a 7.5 60 a new personal best.   Offensively- Starts with a square slightly crouched base with the feet shoulder width apart weight centered and hands above the shoulder back elbow and barrel of the bat parallel to the ground. Gets to the launch phase of the swing with a slight shift of weight to the backside while picking up the lead foot, hands get straight back off the back shoulder with bat lifted with a slight wrap behind the head. Drove the ball from gap to gap, showing an approach to hit the pitch where it was thrown during batting practice. Simple and compact swing, stays in sequence keeping hands behind the rotation while getting the front foot down quickly making it easier for pitch recognition. Recorded an exit velocity of 74 MPH but has been as high as 75 MPH at previous events.    Defensively-  Aggressive approach keeps the feet moving from pre-pitch to the actual receiving of the ball.Fields the ball out in front of the body mostly off to the left-side with the left foot slightly in front of the right foot. Showed quality arm strength recording an arm velocity of 71 MPH across the diamond which was a tick below his personal best of 72 MPH. Throws showed good accuracy with carry. With an adjustment of getting a quicker transfer and keeping the lower half in sync with the transfer will create a stronger quicker throw.

New York Games (June 27-29, 2016)
Mundo stands in at  5-foot-9; 160 pounds. The 3B ran an improved 7.60 60.  Offensively- Mundo sets up in an even and balanced stance with his hands resting on his shoulder,close to the body. Uses a short take back along with a glide forward for timing; hands lead into the zone with a lower half finish; groundball/line drive results; uses the middle of the field. Will develop more punch with increased lower half effort; exit velocity peaked at 77 MPH, a 4 MPH bump from Jan. 2016. Defensively- Listed as a 3B, Mundo also projects at 2B. Active with feet; stays moving into his fielding position; hands get in front; works through the short and in-between hops. Average transfer with accurate arm; arm strength was 72 MPH across the diamond. Physical maturity; increased strength will part of the process for the 2018 grad.
NY State Open ID (January 31, 2015)
Franklin checks in at 5-foot-9 160 pounds. The infielder ran a 7.83 60 and a 4.37 home-to-1B. Offensively- Franklin sets up in an even stance with his weight 50/50 and bat resting on shoulder in the center of his body. Works hands back with a short stride. May benefit from increased separation to free him up him up some. Gets back foot and hips through with a relatively short swing into the zone, able to get behind the high strike. Aggressive hip rotation will help feed the bat speed. Exit velocity was  73 MPH.  Mostly line drive results. Defensively- Light on his feet, positive ground touches and moves laterally in an efficient manner. Hands out in front with a slight delay in transfer (slight double clutch/double shuffle step). Arm strength at 72 MPH. Fits a 2B/3B projection.
