Mansch @ GFT:

Second baseman Joe De Pinto, a 21st-round pick out of Southern California, also caught Newman’s eye.

“Joe’s from USC — that’s good experience playing Pac-10 ball — he looks like he’s going to be a solid in the middle of the infield for us,” said Newman.

PerfectGame.org scouting report

Joseph DePinto is a 2007 MIF/OF/P from St. Francis HS, residing in Sunland, CA, with a 5’10″ 150 lb. frame. DePinto was named to the top prospect team at the California Underclass Showcase. Has a medium but athletic build, with wiry musculature. Offensively possesses a quick bat and a swing path that is very short to the ball. DePinto is a contact/spray hitter who makes consistent contact. He makes the pitcher work to get him out but don’t read that as he is a pest… he can really hit. He also runs well and understands game, making him an effective base stealer. Defensively, DePinto has quick feet and a good early burst to the ball. He is a very solid defender and a very solid player. Consider him a good follow for most D1 programs on the West Coast.
