Athletic 6-foot-4, 195- pound RHP with a projectable pitcher’s frame. Pitching - clean arm action, uses height to get downward plane out of a ¾ slot on fastball at 84-87 MPH, hip tilt at balance point initiates momentum, stays consistently down in the zone, throws curveball at 74-77 MPH for strikes. Offensively - out of a nearly upright stance, brings bat through strike zone on level path, full extension for an exit velocity of 83 MPH; repeatable motion, counter rotation between upper and lower half will produce power.


Filippelli checks in at long and rangy 6-foot-4, 190 pounds with room for additional gains. Recorded a time of 4.3 seconds from home to first base. Offensively- Begins with feet at shoulder width and knees bent. Hands are just above shoulder height. Uses a leg kick that brings weight over back foot before landing back at even. Weight drifts slightly forward in swing. Hands are slightly around ball with a flat swing plane. Stays short into the zone with room for additional extension; repeats efforts. Had an exit velocity of 85 MPH off the tee. Line drive, back of the ball contact.  Defensively- Sets up with wide base and very low knee bend. Catches ball in front of body and takes right to throwing position. Good footwork coming off bag as 1B. Pitching- Begins with narrow feet towards first base side of rubber. Small side step to left as right foot turns to rubber. Knee lift comes to chest height as back turns slightly to home plate. Stride leg swings towards home plate and lands slightly open. Arm stabs ground on backside before continuing to full arm circle. Has an over the top arm slot with loose, whip-like actions. Fastball sat in the 82-85 MPH range with room for additional velo. Also spun a curveball at 71-72 MPH and threw a changeup at 76-77 MPH with fastball arm speed. Potential dual prospects with a higher projection on the mound.
