3/10/19:Big and strong at 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, power is Zubia's calling card. Getting to it during games is his biggest challenge. Shows plus-plus raw power to his pull side in batting practice, but during the game, he uses the middle of the field and didn't elevate the ball to his pull side as someone with his power tool should. From a spread stance he rocks back with a leg lift to load. Creates good separation and good rhythm. As a dead fastball hitter he hunts the heater, but showed a hand hitch and struggled with spin. As a well below average runner, Zubia is limited defensively to 1B or DH. With that said, big power is typically rewarded in the draft, and the more contact Zubia shows, the more his reward will be.

10/14/18: Recently, Texas tweaked redshirt sophomoreZach Zubia’sstance in the batter’s box by moving his front forward inward more to close up his stance some. Zubia finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout on a check-swing he couldn’t hold against a 3-2 fastball up; but he did barrel the ball hard his first at-bat, and just missed a pitch for a high fly out later. Texas hopes to see more of Zubia’s plus-plus raw power this season, which would require him generating more backspin and driving the ball in the air more often. A 6-4, 240-pound former high school quarterback, Zubia made two scoops look easy. Although he still has the look of a future designated hitter, Zubia is making strides defensively at first base.
