Michael Palazzone

School: Lassiter HS (Georgia)

Class: HS Senior

Height: 6′3″

Weight: 190 lbs.

Bats: Right

Throws: Right

Pos: rhp

Hometown: Marietta, GA

Commitment: Georgia

Previously Drafted: None

Strengths:
Palazzone is a polished high school pitcher with the stuff and potential to become a #2 or #3 starter in a big league rotation. He’s a product of the prestigious East Cobb baseball program and shows two plus pitches: a low 90s fastball and a hard curve. He’s got room to fill out, so scouts are expecting he’ll be able to reach the mid 90s consistently in pro ball. Unlike most high school pitchers, he’s shown the ability to set up hitters and has good mound presence.

Weaknesses:
Palazzone doesn’t have the raw stuff or projectability of Tim Melville or Alex Meyer.  He may be a hard sign, because Palazzone is a good student and is committed to a local powerhouse.

The Future:
Late first round/supplemental round.
