12/07/2014 - College PREP - McCook (Chicago), IL Marco is a lean SS that will graduate in 2016. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 7.16 60 time. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying slightly above average hitting abilities with solid power potential through a squared / balanced setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a solid line drive approach as he works to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Barrel accuracy is a plus with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Power numbers will increase as he improves as he learns to utilize his lower half more aggressively. At SS, feet are quick / active as he works to square balls up, displaying clean hands and solid body control. He moves well laterally, flashing range in the MIF and shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turns of the double play. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he attacks balls more and presents hands more out front. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength. With 3 years to further develop, Marco has abilities with time and room to improve.
