College: St. Joseph's
School: Berwick (PA)
Physical Description: Average frame, athletic. No remaining
Mechanics: Throws from a
three-quarters arm slot. Does not utilize a windup.
Fastball: 89-92 mph. Reportedly tops out at 94. Pitch shows late
Curveball: 78-82 mph. Slurvy breaking
ball with varying shape. Sometimes very vertical with 12-to-6 shape, but
other times will show more tilt.
80-81 mph. Spin rate shows they are two different pitches, but both come
in at the same velocity band and have similar movement with late fade.

organization in 2020. Red Sox had Chris Sale call DiValerio as part of
their recruiting pitch.
Summation: Projects as an
organizational depth arm. Lack of velocity limits ceiling, but a solid
player to have in the organization.
