Scouting Report

4/18/19

 

Zamora got the nod against cross-town rival Steinert in a night game matchup at Veterans Park in Mercer County. The broad-shouldered Zamora filled the strike zone at 84-86 touching 87 with some armside run on his fastball. High-3/4 slot with a short quick arm action, Zamora showed swing and miss stuff with his fastball and breaker. CB had late 11/5 bite at 74-75 and also wrinkled in a changeup with armside run at 77 MPH. Up tempo and high energy on the mound, Zamora lands closed with a small turn-off toward first base on finish. Tall and athletic balance point, one of the top 2021s in NJ.

Scouting Report

4/28/19

 

North Carolina recruit. Long, wiry-athletic frame at 6-foot-3 195-pounds. Fastball sat 87-88 touching 89 early on in the game. Settled at 85-86 in the later innings. Slider showed sharp, late and hard 1/7 bite at 78-81 with tight spin and fastball arm action out of hand. Tough to pick up. 3/4 slot, some funk to delivery that makes him deceptive. Dontrelle-Willis-esque hip load in balance point and throws slightly across body, like Madison Bumgarner. One of the top left handersin the state/country.
