Scouting Report:
This is a section of the SB Nation scouting report, you can read the entire thing here

"Pratto is a left-handed hitter and thrower, listed at 6-1, 195, born October 6th, 1998. Although successful as both a pitcher and hitter at the amateur level, scouts prefer his bat for professional baseball. On the mound he projects as a lefty with an 88-90 MPH fastball, while as a hitter he projects as a potential All-Star first baseman. The latter are harder to find than the former. Pratto is committed to the University of Southern California for baseball but is considered signable for first-round money.
