    Franzoni’s 29 home runs during the 2022 season trailed only Texas’ Ivan Melendez for the nation’s Division I home run crown. He easily broke Xavier’s single-season home run record and is also the school’s career home run record holder with 52 homers in four seasons. Franzoni got a lot bigger after focusing on lifting weights during the pandemic, and that paid off this season. Franzoni hits with a very simple and upright setup. He likes to get his arms extended. Much of his power this year came when he drove pitches on the outer third of the plate out to right center field. Franzoni headed to the Cape Cod League after the spring season to get additional at-bats against quality pitching. He moved to first base this year after playing right field earlier in his career. A below-average runner, he’s limited in his range at either spot. A team drafting him would be counting on his power surge this year being sustainable in pro ball.
