6/18/19

Body Type: 5-foot 10, 160-pound slim, projectable build
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: The southpaw prospect displays a low effort, low leg kick motion toward the plate. Works with a low tempo low dive and drive delivery at a near ¾ release.
Fastball: 75-77mph. Low spin efficiency resulting in some late action coming in on right handed hitters. Average command, with a good movement.
Curveball: 61-62mph. The breaker comes in at a 2/8 break, with a slight drop in his release. Gradual break, with a big shape coming into right handed hitters back foot.
Changeup: 68-72mph. Second best offering with good command and located well. Late fade with a little arm side fall off. 
Pitchability:

2/03/19

Body Type: 5-foot-10 160-pound prospect with a medium athletic build that still shows room to fill out.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Threw from a ¾ arm slot with a smooth arm action. Overall the delivery was athletic and dynamic. Used his body well and created good separation. 
Fastball: 77-79 mph fastball showed late life through the zone with some arm side run. 
Curveball: 64-66 mph breaking ball showed curveball shape with decent spin and more depth than lateral movement. 
Changeup: 65-67 mph changeup was a good pitch. Zuccaro killed spin well on the pitch and created some depth on the changeup. 
Pitchability: Good 3 pitch mix with solid command of all three pitches. Changeup has the potential to be a really good pitch down the road. 
Role: With the slightly advanced feel and pitch mix for his class, on top of being a LHP, makes Zuccaro a potential starter type. Really liked the way he moved on the mound. Good athlete.

Body Type: 5-foot-10 160-pound prospect with a medium athletic build that still shows room to fill out.
Swing Mechanics: Starts in a narrow, open stance. Uses a toe tap load with a slight cast of his barrel. Shows an on plane bat path with natural lift. Athletic, balanced finish.
Hit: Good barrel control and bat to ball ability.
Power: 80 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection: Showed good athleticism all day. With his speed it makes it likely he’ll develop into a gap to gap threat as he matures and adds strength.
Field: In the outfield he shows aggressive actions and plays through the ball well. Average footwork and could quicken up his release.
Throw: 80 mph from the outfield.
Run: 6.86 60 yard dash.
Defensive Projection: Shows the athleticism to be a guy who can move around and a play all three outfield spots. Could potentially develop into a true CF guy. Good athleticism and instincts.
