For the teams that value track record, Piscotty has been a consistent performer. He's hit well all three years at Stanford, hit well in the Alaska League after his freshman year and led the Cape Cod League in batting last year. Piscotty has a strong frame at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds. He has a soild, line-drive approach at the plate and projects as more of a doubles hitter than a home run threat. Piscotty's bat profiles better at third base than it does in a corner outfield spot. But if he has to move there as a pro--which is likely, since he moved to the outfield midway through the season at Stanford to make room at third for freshman Alex Blandino--then it's a tougher profile as a righthanded hitter with limited power potential. Piscotty has a strong arm and is a fringe-average runner and scouts like his makeup and work ethic.
