PG Grade: 8.5
Avanzino is a 6-4, 210 lb corner infielder from New York with a pro profile body. He's a primary first baseman defensively but has the arm strength and actions to play third base at the next level. We thought that after seeing him during infield drills and then Avanzino went to third during the games and was one of the better defensive third baseman at the event. He has an especially accurate arm. Avanzino's big tool is his bat, though. He has a powerful swing with plus bat speed and very good extension out front. Avanzino hits from a wide stance and turns on the ball with power. He took the best batting practice of any player at the showcase and really must put on a power display with metal in his hands. Like many young power hitters he can get long in games but Avanzino has a good funamental swing that should be able to make adjustments. He's a very good looking overall player with the added value of being a third baseman as well as a first baseman. Avanzino is also a very good student.
