    Similar to a few other Northeast prep outfielders—like Chris Newell and Trejyn Fletcher—Zmarzlak is a high-upside, tooled-up hitter that comes with some rawness in his game. Currently listed at 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds, Zmarzlak is extremely physical and is a monster in the weight room, having added around 20 pounds over the offseason. With that comes huge raw power, which some scouts grade as plus-plus, and when he connects he hits the ball hard and far. With such a tall frame, Zmarzlak still has room to add even more weight and strength. While he has plenty of juice, it’s a power-over-hit profile, and there are swing-and-miss concerns with the Maryland commit. He’s a fastball hitter now and will need to learn how to attack secondaries. At his best, he is an above-average or plus runner, though scouts haven’t seen those times consistently this spring after dealing with a dislocated foot, and those grades could back up as he continues to fill out.
