<Joey Tonnotti is a 2024 RHP/OF with a 6-2 180 lb. frame from Southington, CT who attends St. Paul Catholic. Large, athletic frame with present strength to frame and additional room to fill throughout moving forward. Ran a 6.98 60-yard dash. Primary right-handed pitcher, quick and compact delivery, lands slightly open coming down the mound, short and quick arm action through the backside. Pounded the strike zone, fastball topped out at 89 mph with true flight and carry through the zone, shows comfort working north/south within the zone, solid life. Changeup at 79 mph and curveball up to 76 mph showed big horizontal break making for tough at-bats. Similar short arm action on throws from the outfield, short arm action through the back, extra step moving into release, effort out of hand, will continue to refine, shows accuracy to intended base. Left-handed hitter, begins with a spread lower half and does a nice job of staying short to the ball while showing quickness to hands. Gets inconsistent with timing on occasion, shows nice carry coming off when squared to all fields, best contact when getting extended out front and creating leverage, went the other way for standup double in live action. Good student.>

-> Mavrick Rizy, 2024 RHP, Massachusetts
Rizy was coming off a great outing in Jupiter, where he touched 93 mph and struck out five with one walk in three shutout innings. He wasn't as sharp here, giving up four hits, two walks, a hit batter and a run in two innings without any strikeouts. Rizy is built like Marlins 2005 first-round pick Chris Volstad at 6-foot-8, 235 pounds, and like Volstad, he throws without much effort in his delivery. Rizy's command of his fastball and curveball weren't as crisp as usual, leading to more balls in play against him, but the Connecticut commit looks like one of the top prep arms in the Northeast for 2024. <-
