Tolisano has been a fixture in top prospect and showcase events around the country for several years now, as his baseball acumen has grown accordingly. He is a well-rounded all around player, and is close to a five-tool player even if none of his tools are exceptional. He is a switch-hitter that uses a contact hitting approach to lace line drives to all parts of the field. He is equally established from both sides of the plate, and offer a fair amount of power potential, especially for a middle infielder. He hit a home run in the Aflac All-American Classic off of a nice curveball from Drake Britton. Defensively he has very smooth actions and a strong enough throwing arm, but his range and overall skills may profile best at second base, or possibly even third, but for now there is no reason to move him away from the shortstop position. Tolisano is home-schooled, and there was some talk of him getting a GED a year ago so he could enter the draft earlier than expected. Given his overall prowess, he should enjoy immediate success at the lower levels of the minors leagues as he begins his professional career.
