Riverside Co. Preseason All-State: Six-foot-2, 160-pounds, long limbs, high waist, large hands and feet. There’s guys that project and there are guys that ooze projection. Put Calzadiaz in the latter category. With a frame that should easily add strength as he matures, Calzadiaz put together one of the most impressive overall performances at the showcase. Posted a modest 7.13 laser-timed 60 before jumping into the hitting wheel where he registered an 89 mph exit velo before peppering gaps with line drives. From a simple, upright setup, Calzadiaz uses a slight leg lift trigger before using explosive hands that he times well with a lower half drive to create sneaky power. Drove two balls to the wall during BP. In the outfield he showed athletic actions when attacking balls and funnelling out front. Registered a 90 mph OF velocity which was second best at the event. However, it was on the mound where Calzadiaz really opened eyes. Touching 85 mph with the fastball he worked comfortably at 83-84 pmh with a loose, easy arm that’s short in the back with an out front release point. Fastball showed some late running action while the curveball was sharp with late depth. Feel for the changeup. There are some mechanical things to clean up, but the clay is there. It just needs to be molded.
