Paul Balestrieri is a 2013 RHP/1B with a 6-2 200 lb. frame from West Windsor, NJ who attends West Windsor. Strong athletic build with room to fill out. Extended 3/4 slot on mound, downhill with good angle. Quick arm, intimidating on mound, gets plus sink at times with fastball. Curveball showed solid late break and changeup is developing third pitch with solid present feel. Big, strong player who has gained velocity over the last year and projects for power. Good present pitchability, more to come in arm. Excellent student.
