Vitale is a slick fielding 6-1, 170 lb middle infielder from Florida. He has tall, angular body that should add some strength in the future. Vitale moves very smoothly on defense and has soft sure hands and easy actions. He threw 81 mph during infield workouts from a high release point and made several very strong throws in the showcase games. The added strength that Vitale should add will help him offensively. He has a short, compact inside out swing right now and will hit the ball where it’s pitched. It’s a good swing fundamentally but Vitale just isn’t strong enough to drive the ball hard yet consistently. His glove at a premium position should carry him for now. Vitale also threw a couple of innings in relief, showing very sound pitching mechanics and a quick arm while throwing 76-79 on his fastball with a 60-63 mph curveball. Vitale is an excellent student, also.

Tom Vitale is a 2006 middle infielder from Longwood, FL, with a 6'1", 172 lb. frame. Vitale has a lean and athletic baseball body. Vitale showed his athletic ability with his good defensive footwork. Vitale also showed some real good game quickness on both offense and defense. He showed solid arm strength at 80 mph across the infield. Vitale has a nice arm action from over the top arm slot. At the plate Vitale starts with a high hand set and has a very aggressive approach. Vitale showed the ability to drive the ball and has some gap to gap pop. Vitale also pitches and should be a two way prospect. Vitale is an exceptional student as well.

Vitale is a 6-0 junior second baseman from Florida with a slender body and projectable physical strength. He showed good footwork and soft hands during infield drills but we understand he was playing with a sore arm and couldn’t display his true arm strength. He did look uncomfortable throwing. Offensively, Vitale took a good batting practice with a good loading action and smooth line drive swing that produced consistent line drives. Vitale stays on the plane of the ball for a long time. Vitale is a 7.55 runner who should get quicker as he gains strength. He is a very good student.
