Zakrosky is a 5-foot-9, 145 pound prospect. The right-handed hitting infielder had an exit velocity of 75 mph off the tee. The initial set up is athletic and square to the pitcher. The hands sit just off the back shoulder, with some pre-pitch movement. He transfers the weight to the back leg using a knee slide. The hands push back into a good launch position. The swing works through the hitting zone on a flat plane and continues well through contact.

Defensively, Zakrosky showed fluid actions in the middle of the diamond and a velocity of 72 mph on his throws. The feet are light and he glides into a balanced fielding position. He breaks down behind the ball with the glove in a good position. He showed soft hands as he transitioned through the ground ball and into the throwing position. The feet put him in a direct line with the target and the upper half follows. The arm-swing is clean and he finishes through the play on a direct line.

Tee Exit Velocity- 75 mph

INF Velocity- 72 mph
