    Decolati is a physical, tooled-up player scouts have long been excited about, but he never conquered his swing-and-miss issues and often left evaluators frustrated. Decolati had decent success in the Cape Cod League last summer but had a 27 percent strikeout rate. He then regressed in the spring with a .275 average and 28 percent strikeout rate while playing second-tier competition in the West Coast Conference. Decolati is a physical athlete as a 6-foot-1, 215 pounder who played shortstop in college. He shows plus raw power, projects as an above-average third baseman with an above-average arm and is an above-average runner capable of double-digit steals. He drives the ball with authority when he makes contact, but he has major holes in his swing and routinely can't get to fastballs on the outer half. Decolati's swing-and-miss problems dropped him out of the top five rounds for most evaluators, but a few like the idea of taking a shot on his tools in rounds five to nine.
