11/03/2019 - College PREP - Waterford Township (Detroit), MI Mariano is a young and lanky CF that will graduate in 2023. In CF, Mariano works hard to get behind the ball and make solid plays. Working a little bit more behind and under the ball will improve Mariano's fielding. His exchanges to throw are quick and he gets rid of the ball from a high 3/4 slot. His throws to the infield are online to the target. Getting a long toss program can help Mariano improve his arm strength. At the plate, he sets up in a tall stance and gets a square stride. He works hard to fire his lower half through and get on plane with the pitch. Mariano shows the ability to hit the ball to all fields. He can improve by getting on a consistent strength program. Overall, Mariano shows a solid foundation and has several years to grow and develop. We look forward to seeing his progress.
