2nd Round Pick: Joe Decarlo

Joe DeCarlo

Shortstop/Third Baseman from Garnett Valley High School (PA).

Bats/ Throws R/R

6’0” 205 pounds

My Thoughts:

Although a shortstop, DeCarlo will have to make a move to third base if he wants to be a passable defender. He brings nice power and is very signable. Personally, I was hoping the Mariners would take Rio Ruiz, but DeCarlo has a very similar skill set but will be easier to sign and is less of an injury threat. I’m reasonably happy with this pick.
