Scouting Report

6/07/20

 

Richmond Braves Workout

Athletic 6-foot, 170-pound frame. Has high end speed turning out a 6.85 60 on what tends to be a somewhat slow track. Raw arm strength from the outfield with a 87 mph positional velocity. Is a really solid defender in the outfield with the range and arm strength to defend multiple positions. Had the most complete day of any hitter turning out a 3-3 performance with a line drive single down the third base line in his first at bat. Second at bat he hit a ball out of left center. Followed that at bat up a few minutes later with a no doubter out of left center that cleared by an easy thirty feet. Starts from a square athletic stance, toe tap to stride, and minimal hand load with short path to contact. Gets out of the box really well and is a threat on the bases. DiNapoli also offers some two-way ability. On the mound he was 82-86 mph with the fastball and flashed a 74-76 mph breaking ball with 11/5 shape.

Mid-Atlantic Summer Championship

DiNapoli has an athletic frame with a lot of projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a balanced athletic stance, short stride on line. Simple swing, short to the ball with quick hands, uphill through contact with good extension. Hammered ball all day on Sunday, the swing in the video was a home run to left, also lined balls for deep fly outs in most of his other at-bats. Showed good approach using the whole field, with easy doubles power to all fields now and future home run power to all fields.

Another nice young arm for Lee-Davis. DiNapoli came in for relief of Strattman in the championship game and showed well versus a very good Benedictine offense. He threw two and one-third innings and allowed three hits while striking out three. The right hander starts with a small rocker step from a staggered stance. Waist high balance point and shoulders level and closed off moving down the mound. Lands slightly closed at foot strike. Shorter arm circle from a low hand break and throws from a high three-quarter arm slot. Fastball was 81-83 mph with some arm side run at times. Curveball had 12/6 action while sitting at 67-68 mph. Delivery was low effort and ball came out easy, as there should be plenty more in the tank as he continues to grow.
