MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Video
2018 High 60 Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Plus bat speed; quiet hands; quick and loose wrists; moderate barrel control; mild leverage; moderate leg kick and load; stays balanced; recognizes spin; approach is still in the early stages of development.
Power 30 Fringe raw; mild leverage; plus bat speed; lacks the physical strength for in-game power; will spray ball to gaps for doubles power.
Baserunning/Speed 60 4.16 home to first; explosive second gear; lacks awareness on the basepaths currently.
Glove 60 Plus speed; efficient first step; adequate reads and routes; second gear speed allows for leniency with mistakes; laid out on a full sprint dive for a ball in the gap.
Arm 60 Plus arm strength; displays carry and accuracy from whiplike motion.

Signed out of Venezuela as an amateur free agent in 2011 for $759,000. Tocci has the speed, defense and arm to profile as a regular in center field. I think he will fill out his wiry frame more in the future, and the bat displayed optimisim for a future average hit tool. The risk is still high with Tocci, but he has progressed this season and will be at the High-A level shortly.
