Joseph Busalacchi is a 2007 LHP from from Mt. Carmel HS, residing in San Diego, CA, with a 6'2" 183 lb. frame. He has a good pitcher's build. He is long with a broad upper body. Busalacchi needs to focus on staying flexible so he can maximize that frame. A primary pitcher, Busalacchi pitches from an over the top slot and has a clean backside arm action. On the backside he has a shallow take away out of the glove to begin his arm circle. Busalacchi has some arm strength and combined with his physical body, can be considered to have good projectability. He has decent body control and understand how to use his front side for leverage. In January we saw him exclusively use his FB in the 77-80 mph range. That pitch had a little late wrinkle and he showed some pitchability as he used only the FB. Young lefties with FB feel and a body like Busalacchi's should be followed by college baseball.
