Focus Area
Comments
Hitting Ability:Tolisano has excellent plate presence, stays through the zone well and has quick hands. He is better from the left side of the plate.
Power:With increased workouts this past season, Tolisano has gained some power.
Running Speed:The added muscle has taken a little bit away form his quickness, but he still has average speed to first base, albeit it with a bulkier run.
Arm Strength:Tolisano has an above-average arm, with a nice compact throw. That arm strength would play even better as a second baseman.
Arm Accuracy:He's usually righ ton the money with his throws.
Fielding:Tolisano is a very sure-handed infielder.
Range:His range is average at best, which is why some see him as a second baseman at the next level.
Physical Description:Tolisano is a solid, muscular middle infielder with a Randy Velarde-type body.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Tolisano has a good idea at the plate, uses the whole field well and has developing power.
Weaknesses:There is some concern that he's gotten too bulky and hit the weights too hard. He's maxing out his frame and there's no real room for growth potential. Defensively, he's likely not a shortstop as a professional.
Summary:Tolisano has been on the radar screen for some time. The infielder has added a lot of bulk this season and it's allowed him to show some more power at the plate. The switch-hitter uses all fields well and has a good idea at the plate, though he is better from the left side. Defensively a shortstop right now, he profiles better as a solid all-around second baseman at the next level.
