2023 MLB DRAFT: Nazzan Zanetello, 3B — Christian Brothers College (MO)

Nazzan Zanetello has made the rounds on the travel circuit, going anywhere from Team USA to the Breakthrough Series to numerous other events. An Arkansas commit standing 6-foot-2 and weighing in at 180 pounds, he’s an agile third baseman who is likely best known for his run tool, producing a 6.3 60 at the Future Stars Series Kansas City Regional Combine back in 2021.

FSS Event History: At the time of that Regional Combine, which is Zanetello’s only FSS appearance, he was working as a two-way player, also getting in time as an RHP. He’s since focused as an infielder, which is where the development staff liked him better anyway; not only did he run a 4.3 40 at the event alongside his blazing 60, but he was also lauded for his baserunning instincts as well.

Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 600: 51

Joe Doyle on Nazzan Zanetello:

Zanetello is a lean infielder with significant bat speed and gap-to-gap power, though most expect him to throw them over the fence in due time. He’s a bouncy infielder with a strong first step and the potential to stay up the middle of the field on the dirt or out in centerfield. Zanetello is a good athlete who’s an accomplished pitcher from the left side as well. A plus runner, he can nab a few bases in-game as well. Zanetello has been streaky at the plate with the hit tool, so impressing scouts in the spring will be important in determining his draft stock.
