02/20/2012 - College PREP - Trumbull, CT Mario is broad, lanky catcher that will graduate in 2013. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.23 60 time. Feet are quick / active as he gains ground and works through the ball. Pop times show a range of 2.24-2.35 with accuracy on his throws. He needs to speed up his transfer / exchange and build more arm strength to lower pop times. Blocking skills show potential as being playable tools but needs further work to improve his receiving skills. At the plate, Fontanella shows a balanced, closed stance with rhythm. He makes consistent contact, flashing bat speed through a long swing path. For hitting grades to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside and through the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to load and use his lower half more through the swing. Mario has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
