Diodati is a 6-foot-3, 210-pound lefthanded hitting catcher and first baseman. Diodati shows a feel to hit and has plenty of strength in his swing and regularly lofts balls deep in batting practice and games. He works from a quiet set up, with his bat resting on his shoulder and doesn’t have much pre-pitch movement or noise in his load. While Diodati both catcher and first, most think he’ll wind up being a first baseman only, as he is a well below-average defender behind the dish now, with lots of work to do to stick back there. Diodati is committed to Alabama.
