Zangari has given tantalizing glimpses that he could end up as an excellent future reliever. He has shown that he can blow up a radar gun with a 95+ mph fastball, but he's yet to show that he can throw two in a row with the same release point, which explains why he has struggled to throw strikes. And that velocity has not been consistent, adding to the puzzle and the need to project. His breaking ball is equally in need of refinement but every now and then he breaks off one with quality depth. He's a little more refined at the plate, where he has well above-average power potential " he hit 19 home runs this year, including two in the 5-A state semifinal game. At 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, Zangari's strong arm plays well at catcher, but he's already extremely big for the position and likely will end up as a righthanded-hitting first baseman if he sticks to hitting. If he makes it to Oklahoma State, he has the talent to help the Cowboys on the mound and in the batter's box.
