Evan Bottone: OF/OF, (2023) Bay Village, OH. 5-foot-10, 175-pound. In the box, Bottone's best exit velocity was 90 mph. Very impressive showing at the plate. Smooth, lefty stroke with feel for contact and sneaky juice. High follow bat. Solid from the outfield, he made throws to the infield at velocities up to 75 mph; had average footwork, soft hands, and a natural fluid exchange. Laterally, movements were average and fielded the ball out front. Displayed speed and athleticism at the event, recording a 60 time of 6.82. 


One of the top rated prospects of the event. Started off the day by running a blazing 6.58, 60-yard dash. Bottone is far from just straight line fast as speed shows up on the bases and while tracking in the outfield. Offensively, he swings it from the left side showing a controlled/efficient sequence prior to launch. Very quick hands through the zone, with an overall level path to the baseball. The combination of above average physicality and bat speed allowed him to consistently generate exit velocities around the 90mph mark with a top exit velocity of 95mph. Type of bat who can play a variety of roles inside a lineup. Defensively, we’ve noted the footspeed and he also showed above average ball skills for class. How the arm develops will likely determine future destination.
