April 2016
Frank the 6-foot, 200-pound senior Canisius College commit dominated on the mound again. This is the second week in a row we’ve seen his start and he continues to show good command of both his FB and CB. His velo was 86-89 and even touched a 91 MPH early on.  Through 5 innings he struck out 12, many times with his sharp 73-mph breaking ball.
April 2016
Frank stands a stocky 6-foot with strong upper half.  His FB sat 87-90 MPH throughout his 5 innings of work in the cold and snow.  Most of his FB's were at 88mph.  His best off speed was a sharp 71-73mph slurvy breaking ball.  The break is late and tough to hit, especially because he had no problem throwing it for strikes all afternoon.  He also mixed in a CU at 80mph. He was able to dominate what could be one of the best hitting lineups in the state this year in Orchard Park. Frank should be worth watching all spring as he brings a dominant, aggressive approach to the mound for the Marauders.
Western New York Open (July 23, 2015)
Stands 5-foot-11, 185-pounds with a thick lower half, broad shoulders. Above average from the mound, Frank uses a balanced delivery, hands above knee on separation, arm action is clean and quick, throws from a low-3/4 slot. Fastball sits 83-84, topping 87 with good hidden late action. Curveball is above average at 74-76 with hard, late 10/5 shape. Cerebral pitcher who is still uncommitted – but is a no-doubter at the next-level.
New York Games (July 7-9, 2015)
Stands 5-foot-11, 180-pounds with a stocky-thick build. From the mound his delivery is under control, compact, with some late quick movements into his balance point. Arm action is quick and short, throws from a power mid-3/4 slot. Fastball sat 81-84, touched 87 four times just this past week at our WNY open event, fastball has some late depth and action, command is plus. Curveball at times is tight and sweeping at 70-73 mph. Next-level arm that is going to keep getting better. 
Pre Season All-State Invite (February 15, 2015)
Frank stands 5-foot-11 185-pounds with stocky, strong lower half. He starts with his hands high before delivery starts. Shows a middle level knee lift, separates a touch late. Hand speed is above average evidenced by his 85 mph sinking fastball. Arm action is short, back towards SS, throws from a deceptive mid-3/4 slot. Curveball sat 75 with plus sweeping action, changeup was 76 with good hand-speed, late action. Very good next-level prospect on the mound.
Upstate Underclass Games (September 7, 2014)
Frank stands 5-foot-11 180-pounds with the frame to hold more size. On the mound he stays over the rubber on his knee lift, tucked and in a power position. His arm action is straight out by shortstop very short and quick from a mid 3/4 slot. Fastball has action to it running down and away at 80-82 mph, very deceptive, needs to finish more over his front knee. His curveball was 67-68 mph with sharp 10/5 shape, from his arm angle its a very strong pitch.
