6-foot-3, 215-pound right-handed pitcher. Showed very well for me at the event. The fastball touched 88 mph, downhill in plane. The spin pitch is 70-72 mph and has more room for improvement with more fastball hand speed. The changeup has action, sitting at 82 mph, a tick too hard. The delivery is online with the feet, above ¾ in slot. The tracking and direction of the front side is done well, he stay online. The arm gets out well and he shows a clean arm path. Good looking prospect who should continue to develop well.

6-foot-3, 205 pounds, thick, strong, physical frame, present strength in the upper and lower halves, especially in the legs. Ran a 6.74 sixty yard dash. Explosive athlete who clearly made gains since his last event. Stands even in the box with a minor leg kick to trigger the swing. Gets weight back early, serious juice in the bat when everything is on time. Best contact came when the bat path was level, though at times can get steep when mechanics are not in sync. Quick hands that work fluidly through the point of contact. Still learning to tap into the raw power with consistency, though he did pop a home run in game action. His tee exit velocity was measured at 95 MPH. Working out as a third baseman, Lombardi’s hands are a little stiff on ground balls, though he moves well getting into position. Throws across the diamond were clocked at 82 MPH coming from a low ¾ slot. A right-handed pitcher, he works from a ¾ slot. The arm is clean on the backside but a little stiff. Simple, repeatable mechanics, extends well down the mound and creates downhill plane on pitches. The fastball sat primarily 82-85 MPH, touching as high as 87 MPH. Fills up the zone with the pitch. The curveball works 62-66 MPH with depth. Should continue developing into a swing-and-miss offering. Also comfortable mixing in a changeup. The pitch comes in between 75-78 MPH with some fade and feel for it. Tallied four strikeouts in game action. Major follow in the 2020 class, unlikely to remain uncommitted much longer, as his potential as a legitimate two-way prospect should have teams all over him.

Sixty-Yard Dash: 6.74
Exit Velocity: 95 mph
Arm Velocity: 82  mph

6-foot-2, 200 pounds, big, thick, durable frame, long legs. Can work on conditioning and adding muscle to his projectable frame. Ran a 4.72 home-to-first. Throws from a lower ¾ slot. Arm velocity was clocked at 75 mph from third base. Slides well side-to-side at third and shows a promising backhand. Could improve transfers into throws. At the plate, Lombardi has some pop in his bat and his beginning to utilize his physical frame to drive the ball. Registered a tee exit velocity of 91 mph. He is even at the plate with a wide base. Employs a quick leg kick. Loose hands that work higher in the zone, starting up above his shoulders. The bat path is level-up. On the mound, Lombardi works from a low ¾ slot. All of his velocity comes from the arm, and learning to tap into his strong lower half would pay immediate dividends in the velocity department. Shows the ball at the backside. Fastball was clocked between 77-79 mph. The pitch had some sink on it and is heavy when thrown down in the zone. His curveball has an 11/5 shape, showing promising break. The pitch sat between 62-65 mph and should keep improving as he climbs the ladder. His changeup comes in firm around 72 mph. The pitch is still a work in progress, and separating it further from the fastball in velocity should help induce more movement. Should he choose pitching long-term, his build is such that it is easy to see him soaking up innings as a starter.  Overall, Lombardi is a bright two-way prospect in the 2020 class, and someone to follow as he heads into his sophomore year.

Home-First: 4.72
Exit Velocity: 91 MPH
Arm Velocity: 75 MPH

Future Games
6-foot-3, 208-pound, big, long, super athletic frame. Committed to Boston College after the event, a two way player, will start to focus strictly on the pitching. Off the mound, the fastball reached 88 mph, hitting 87 mph multiple times. The delivery, is simple, clean separation, longer arm path, stride is long and inline. The finish and extension is out front with length to it.  The fastball has action to the arm side, late bore movement. The breaking ball was clocked at 72-75 mph, it’s a hard downward hammer. Showed feel for the change up in warmups, action to arm side, sells it well with good fastball arm speed, needs to develop feel for it still. Times to the plate were at 1.25, worked well and pounded the zone, with a two pitch mix. At the plate, has above average power to all fields, had a tee exit velocity of 96 mph. The swing gets a little pull happy and cuts across at times, looks to lift it quick. When on time, light tower power. Defensively, soft hands and good footwork around the bag at first. The double play starts are smooth, arm works from a lower slot at first, clocked at 85 mph. Look for him to erupt off the mound at some point.  

Exit Velocity: 96 MPH
Arm Velocity: 85 MPH
