09/08/2019 - College PREP - La Verne (Los Angeles), CA Massimo is an athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line to his target and gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times showed in the 2.31 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He shows a squared setup and sticks ball in zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, centering balls well out front, and is a wall behind the plate. At the plate he continues to shine, displaying solid hitting / power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. With 2 years to further develop, Massimo has the makings of a special type player as he continues to progress his game.
