5-foot-8, 130-pound right-handed hitting middle infielder. He ran a 7.53 sixty at the event. The skill set in the infield is athletic and he keeps the feet active as he fields the baseball. He does double tap after initially taking the baseball out of his glove. The glove is reliable and he threw 70 mph across the diamond at the event. The bat has an exit velocity of 79 mph. The setup is wide in base and he steps into the swing as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The path is slightly uphill as he makes contact with the baseball. The frame can use the addition of physical strength and weight gain. 

Exit Velocity- 79 mph

INF Velocity- 70 mph

5-foot-8, 130-pound right-handed hitting middle infielder. He ran a 7.81 sixty at the event. The approach in the infield is solid as the glove is reliable and he threw 75 mph across the diamond at the event. The bat has an exit velocity of 79 mph. The setup is wide in base and the front foot steps into the swing as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The front foot does dive in a bit to the plate as he swings. The bat path is long to contact as physical strength gains are warranted to help aid the development of his game. 

Exit Velocity- 79 mph

INF Velocity- 75 mph

DiFiore is a 5-foot-7, 120 pound prospect. The right-handed hitting catcher/infielder had an exit velocity of 70 mph off the tee. He hits out of wide, square base with the hands just off the back shoulder. He uses a knee slide to get the weight to the back leg and the hands push back to a strong position to hit. The bat-path is quick and flat to and through the hitting zone.  

Behind the plate, the stance is balanced, with the glove centered in the middle of the chest. The feet are square prior to shifting into the throwing position. As he moves to get going toward second base, the feet replace, with the hips and shoulders following. He’s a little quick to stand upright, causing him to be flat-footed. The glove to ball transfer is good.  He gets the ball out and into a strong throwing position. His finish is in line with the target and showed a velocity of 67 mph at this event.

In the infield, he was 72 mph across the diamond. The feet move well as he works to get into a good fielding position. He breaks down behind the ground ball, with the glove out in front.  He transitions well into the throwing position and creates a good line with the target. He continues through the play, keeping that good line with the target.

Tee Exit Velocity- 70 mph

Catching Velocity- 67 mph

INF Velocity- 72 mph
