Marco showed some improvements in his game during his last workout with The Factory. He ran his best 60 to date, lowered pop times, and showed well offensively. At 1st base, Marco has a presentable glove, he covers some ground, and he stays low. He moves well around the bag, fields cleanly, and throws with a high 3/4 arm slot to his target. Behind the plate, Marco sits in well, he tracks to his glove, and works hard to block. He repeats his actions well, and lowered pop times to 2.58 seconds. Work on set-up, balance, and release will help improve catching skills. At the plate, Marco has an open stance, good bat speed, and strength to the pull side.

Marco is a C/1B in the class of 2025 out of California. At C, he does a good job of receiving by presenting glove early and sticking pitches in the zone by working under/around the baseball. When throwing down, he showed the ability to gain ground towards his target in a straight line while making accurate throws. When blocking, he did a good job getting his glove down early to attack baseball and keep it in front. At 1B, he had efficient footwork with a good first step to create angles to make the routine play consistently. At the plate, he uses an open stance to work back to find balance and try to utilize the middle of the field with his approach. With 2+ years of development we believe Marco's game will continue to improve to prepare him to be a player to watch out for.

Marco continues to shine on the diamond. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 3.00 range and will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He shows a squared setup and presents a soft mitt as he tracks the ball well. He utilizes his body through the blocking process but needs to work to get body down sooner to center balls out front. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and has some strength in his swing as he stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach.
