2/12/17 5-foot-10, 180-pound right-handed hitter who ran a 6.82 60-yard dash. Has put on twenty pounds in the past year and is showing some pullside pop with exit velocity up to 91 mph. Starts from an open stance and takes a knee-to-knee stride to square. Flashes some bat speed despite tendency to get a little rigid with arms/shoulders, and would benefit from letting the ball travel deeper into the hitting zone. Athletic approach to the ball, while 79 mph arm strength from a low slot with elbow in tight to body appears to play better in the outfield when he can run through the throw.
10/29/16 5-foot-10, 170-pound right-handed hitter who ran a 6.68 60-yard dash. Starts from a slightly open stance and takes a knee-to-knee stride to square. Flat barrel path geared mainly to the pullside and has strength in his frame. Could be more to come from a 90 mph exit velocity that is mainly top-half driven, as he has limited backside rotation that is more spin than drive right now. Defensively, he exhibits athletic actions with a solid glove. Arm strength from a low elbow with push action was down at this event, but has been up to 78 mph in the past.
8/19/16 Serafino continued a summer filled with successful offensive performances by going 3-for-10 with two RBI and a stolen base. The primary infielder has also begun to transition to a MIF/OF to better utilize his foot speed (6.89 60-yard dash). The 5-foot-10, 160-pounder has shown the athleticism to be able to make a permanent move to the outfield at the next level if necessary.
6/15/16 5-foot-10, 160-pound right-handed hitter starts from a slightly open stance and strides to square. Simple approach allows him to stay inside baseball repeatedly with a bat exit velocity of 82 mph. Went 3-for-6 in game action and ran a 6.96 60-yard dash. Displayed active feet, a quick release and the ability to make throws from multiple arm angles defensively with accurate 70 mph arm strength.
2/14/16 Right-handed hitter with wiry, athletic 5-foot-10, 160-pound frame. Ran a 6.89 60-yard dash and posted an 86-mph exit velocity. Starts from a slightly open stance and strides to square. Simple approach with minimal body movement and keeps his eyes level. Would benefit from completing his lower half weight transfer, as he doesn't always get his backside fully rotated. Defensively, he played low to the ground and showcased 71-mph arm strength.

12/12/15 5-foot-10, 160-pound right-handed hitter starts from a slightly open stance and strides to square, keeping his head quiet throughout the swing. His hands work well, staying inside the baseball routinely, while generating a bat exit velocity of 84 mph. Serafino ran a solid 6.96 60-yard dash and showed a soft glove hand and accurate arm across the diamond. The athletic sophomore also worked out as an outfielder flashing solid straight line carry on throws of 77 mph to home plate.

11/7/15 5-foot-10, 160-pound right-handed hitter who ran a 6.90 60-yard dash and logged an 85-mph exit velocity. Starts from a slightly open stance and strides to square, keeping his head quiet throughout the swing. Slightly uphill path with tendency to lose barrel at contact and not get to palm-up-palm-down position. Defensively, he exhibited solid feet and 71-mph arm strength across the diamond.
