Agosta pitched to Andrew Susac at Jesuit High (Carmichael, Calif.) before going on to have a successful career at St. Mary's, where he'll finish among the school's career wins and strikeouts leaders. He has won nine games this season, the Gaels' first nine-game winner since Toby Foreman won 10 in 1991, though he has been up and down from a scouting perspective. He showed above-average velocity in the fall, but has mostly pitched in the 90-92 mph range this spring. When he does reach back for 94-96, he usually leaves the ball up in the zone. His main secondary pitch is a cutter, and he mixes in a slider. He would need to add a changeup to profile as a back-of-the-rotation starter. That's why some scouts prefer him as a reliever in pro ball, where he can air out his fastball for an inning or two and just focus on his cutter and slider. Agosta has an average build at 6-foot-1 and 178 pounds, the ball comes out of his hand easily and his fastball shows good life. He has good control, but still needs to work on his command.
