After going undrafted out of high school, Altavilla became a dominant starter and won the Division II pitcher of the year award this spring. He finished the year with a 1.23 ERA in 80 innings, striking out 14.5/9 IP with a 5.2 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He struck out more than 40 percent of the hitters he faced. He also struck out more than a hitter per inning last summer in the Cape Cod League. Altavilla sits 90-93 mph and touches 95. His heater plays up with above-average armside bore and is tough on righthanded hitters. His slider is fringy but plays as average because of the way he deploys it. His changeup with split-like action is at least an average offering. He projects to have average control. The 6-foot, 200-pound Altavilla has a strong, physical build but no projection, and he projects as a reliever because of effort in his delivery.
