Attacked hitters and maintained velocity well. FB sat 91-93MPH and hit a couple 94's. FB is quality pitch and paired with a hard, sharp SL. Would throw for strikes and out of the zone as an out pitch. Wiry build and quick mover.

Transferred from Coastal Carolina to St. John's River State College

4.6.17: Simonelli is recovering from Tommy John surgery in the summer of 2016 and is now almost nine months post-operation. He has successfully completed the flat ground portion of his rehab throwing program and has begun to throw bullpens.

11/2015: Committed to Coastal Carolina

Simonelli throws from a low three quarters arm slot with a smooth delivery. His fastball touched 89 in the first inning and he worked 83-88 on the day, still sitting 86-87 in the fifth inning. His changeup has outstanding armspeed and heavy fading action, running 76-80. Simonelli’s slider had hard 11/5 action, running 72-75, with the ones at the higher end of the range showing no snap, just biting off the table late.

Simonelli is a lanky righty that throws from a low three-quarters arm slot with a smooth delivery. He has a long, loose arm action that is quick and generates easy velocity. His shoulders are closed and level as he strides out to a square landing before falling off and recoiling a bit as he finishes. Simonelli’s fastball has good late run and sink to it, sitting 85-87 for four innings and reaching as high as 89 early in the game. His changeup is outstanding and is thrown with full armspeed and has a ton of sink to it, running 77-79. His breaking ball has 11/5 action and ran 70-72.

Simonelli stands a lanky 6-foot-1. His fastball is in the low to mid 80s and has touched as high as 87. Simonelli also shows feel for a full arsenal of secondary pitches, using a curveball, change-up, and slider.

: 6-foot-2, 190-pound right-handed pitcher, strong, athletic frame, transfer from Coastal Carolina. Athletic delivery, quick two-step, inconsistent rhythm. Fastball sat 88-89. Curveball, sweeping action, 77-79, lacked command at-times but has makings of an above-average pitch. Changeup, fade action, 83.
