Keeps head in the game, stays focused throughout

MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Realistic Role Video
2020 High 40 30 No
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 30 Moderate load; linear bat path with some late loft; average bat speed, maybe a tick below, swing can get elongated; good approach, knows the zone, capable of staying back on off-speed pitches; expands above the zone, may struggle against premium velocity
Power 40 45 raw, swing not currently conducive to full utility, may develop average power if frame maxes out
Baserunning/Speed 45 4.22-4.30 down the line, quick first step, build should allow speed to hold
Glove 50 Quality first step, athleticism plays, range not exceptional but more than a step and a dive
Arm 50 Arm plays at third, prone to overthrowing first basemen, will short-arm it

Seattle's 8th round pick in the 2016 draft, Zammarelli lacks a standout tool, but he can do a bit of everything and he could provide adequate defense at third and enough bat to stick in a reserve role at full maturation. While a lack of strength and tendency to swing and miss will probably prevent him from enjoying a significant big league career, he has the tools to succeed in the upper minors. In an era of three- or four-man benches, he will need to add defensive versatility to his game to enhance big-league viability.
