12/18/2022 - National Showcase - Thousand Oaks, CA Marcello is a 2028 graduate out of Covina who brings a confidence and know-how to the field. Defensively up the middle, he shows lightness in his footwork with a solid exchange from glove to hand and consistent throws across the diamond at 63mph. At the plate, he gets his lower-half through on every swing with an on-plane swing path and above-average hand-eye. Bat speed is average at this point. On the mound, he shows a maturity beyond his years showing confidence and command of a three pitch mix. Arm action is quick and clean. He has above-average leg strength for a 13 year old coming in at 6'9" in the broad jump. This leg strength comes in to play on the mound as he shows proper stride length and good finish on every pitch. Marcello has a bright future on the diamond.
