Vanasco had some buzz after a strong showing at the Florida Diamond Club showcase in the fall. He's a projectable, 6-foot-3, 180-pound righthander. His fastball works in the low 90s and tickles 93, but he gets his torso over his front side well, adding extension and deception to his delivery. Vanasco throws curveball, a slider, and a changeup, all of which scouts grade as below-average pitches. He has some upside given his arm strength and body, but isn't likely to be a high draft pick out of high school. Vanasco is committed to Stetson.
