Drafted in the 14th round (424th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2021 (signed for $125,000)
A San Diego area native, Scalzo spent one season at San Jose State before heading to Grand Canyon for his next three years. He thrived in the closer role for the Antelopes in 2021, saving 12 games and posting a 2.12 ERA and 31 strikeouts in 29.2 innings. His 1970s-era mustache and socks pulled up to his knees present an old school look when he’s on the mound, and he brings plenty of energy. Scalzo relies mostly on a 94-97 mph fastball, occasionally mixing in a short slider from 82-84 mph. It’s a hard approach with little change of pace. Scalzo’s live arm will likely get him picked somewhere in the latter half of the draft, although the fact that he’s a senior could make him an earlier money-saving pick.
