12/14/2019 - Nor Cal Regional Offensive Skills and Pitching/Catching Combined Weekend (Ages 14-18) Gio is a coachable RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Accelerated Training Weekend. On the mound, Gio gathers over the rubber and works with a loose arm. He stays inline towards the plate and finishes square to his target. Gio shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 60mph with tailing action. Breaking ball sits from 43-47mph with 11-5 break. Changeup sits from 45-49mph with arm side run as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Separating his hands earlier in his motion can help Gio improve as a pitcher. At the plate, this LHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a short stride. He is smooth getting into his load and leads well with his lower half. He takes a direct swing with decent bat speed, leading to consistent line drives. Gio can improve as a hitter by continuing to add strength. With four more years to develop, Gio has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
