A small, righthanded-hitting shortstop out of New Jersey, scouts almost universally praise Volpe’s work ethic and the way he goes about playing the game. Volpe has very limited power, but he’s got quick hands and a compact swing that allow him to spray line drives up the middle and into the gaps. A solid runner, Volpe is a reliable defensive shortstop, making all of the routine plays with sound glovework, hands and accurate throws. There’s some effort to his delivery on throws across the diamond, but he has solid arm strength and a quick exchange that should allow him to stick up the middle. Volpe is committed to Vanderbilt.
