Nick Zammarelli Scouting Report — 1B, Seattle Mariners

Prospect: Nick Zammarelli
Position: First Baseman
Organization: Seattle Mariners
Height/Weight: 6’1”, 195 lbs.
Bats/Throws: L/R
Age/DOB: 23 (July 30, 1994)
Acquired/Hometown: 8th Round, 2016 MLB Draft (Providence RI; Elon)

Timed 4.20 and 4.21 up the line from the LHH box; 3.79 on a bunt from the LHH box; 4.49 on the turn at first base.

Notes — April 5-6
Surprisingly quick; good foot speed up the line, far better than expected considering his size and profile, and it hints at a better underlying athlete than what he’ll probably be given credit for by most. Good athlete at first base; consistent there with decent range and makes plays … Takes some huge, long hacks; doesn’t get cheated out of a swing. Really looking to do damage to the ball when he comes to the plate; swing can get long to that end and I wonder how he’ll fare against more consistent upper 90s velocity with it, but the bat speed is good and he’s uncorking a ton of power in that swing … Standing to the front end of the batter’s box in my looks; wonder if he’s trying to get out in front and catch breaking balls before the drop off the table. He’s definitely challenging pitchers to beat him high and hard by doing that, though; hot personal/statistical start to the year in Lancaster; will be interesting to see throughout the season how he adjusts to pitchers … Need to see Nick Zammarelli more and figure out what the Seattle Mariners have here; without question, he’ll have some fun hitting in the Cal League this summer.
