8/19/16 Mongelluzzo has consistently shown two-way abilities (6.95 60-yard dash, 87 mph bat exit velocity, 81 mph outfield arm strength). On this occasion the 5-foot-11, 165-pounder showed progress on the mound sitting 80-82 from a high 3/4 arm slot. Mongelluzzo also flashed a 74 mph curveball with tight 11/5 rotation.
11/7/15 5-foot-11, 165-pound right-handed hitter who ran a 6.95 60-yard dash and posted an 87-mph exit velocity. Starts from a slightly open stance and takes minimal stride to square. Gets into his front side early, while his hands work reasonably well and he keeps his head fairly still. Defensively, he showcased 81-mph arm strength with a wrist wrap in his arm action.

11/7/15 5-foot-11, 165-pound who pitches out of a high three-quarter slot with a wrist wrap and kicks his lead foot toward home plate. Fastball sat 78-79, touching 81-mph, with occasional run and sink. Showed good feel for a change-up at 72-73 with fade, while also showing a curveball at 69-71 that he struggled to command on this day. 
6/30/15 5-foot-11, 160-pound right-handed hitter. Starts from a square stance with a small lift and replace stride. Displayed the ability to stay inside baseball with a feel for the barrel and a bat exit velocity of 84 mph. Showcased a 7.23 60-yard dash and an accurate 75 mph arm from the outfield.

6/30/15 5-foot-11, 160-pound primary outfielder. Righty sat 77-78 with some cut action to his fastball from a high 3/4 arm slot. 67 mph curveball showed slider action with 11/5 rotation. Cutter sits at same velocity as fastball with more distinct break. Additional physical maturation and strength gains could lead to sigificant velocity gains in coming years. 
6/24/15 5-foot-11, 160-pound right-handed hitter. Hit from a square stance with a short, lift-and-replace stride. Hands are quiet pre-swing and work through contact well. Repeatable swing has a bit of length coupled with some bat speed. Ran a 7.25 60-yard dash. Showcased 82-mph exit velocity and 76-mph arm strength during workout. Would benefit from more live reps reading fly balls off the bat, as his first step was typically in on balls that ended up over his head during game action.
6/24/15 5-foot-11, 160-pound frame. Pitched out of a high three-quarter slot, kicking lead leg out of balance point. Maintained direction to the plate well. Fastball at 76-77 had consistent, natural cut away from the barrel. Also utilized a curveball at 67-69 with 11/5 action.

2/22/15 5-foot-11, 155-pound two-way prospect with average, athletic frame. While early, projects best as a pitcher at this stage. Uses a slight inward turn and stays online through his delivery. Shows long arm action with some stabbing on the back end. Throws through a high-¾ arm slot. Demonstrated command of 75-77 mph fastball with some natural cutting action to it. Also mixes in a 2-seam at 74 mph that shows more cut than run. Breaking ball was located down in the zone at 66-69 mph with 11/5 movement. Changeup is sold with good arm action at 70-71 mph. Defensively, he showed a top velocity of 78 mph from the outfield. Tends to close himself off. At the plate, he initiates his swing from the right side with a leg kick. Overall compact swing. Showed ability to hit to all fields. Some loft and extension. Ran a 4.5 home to first time.
