At SS, Giovanni is on time with his prep step, he anticipates the ball off the bat, and shows range to both sides of the glove. He has soft hands, good footwork on double plays, and has a strong arm. At the plate, Giovanni starts in a tall and open stance. He has a simple load, controls the barrel, and stays compact to the ball. In game, Giovanni shows a middle approach and has good pitch recognition. On the bump, Giovanni has good presence and challenges hitters. His fastball tops out at 77 mph, his curveball has a 10-4 break, and he has some feel for the changeup. Giovanni has a lot of potential and we hope to see his progress in the future.
