2012 Hitters, hitters everywhere, and not a one a righty. Rizzotti’s return to Reading wasn’t nearly as eye-catching as his first go-round, but he proved the breakout wasn’t a complete fluke. The biggest puzzle here is why he wasn’t promoted more aggressively given his age. As it was, Rizzotti treaded water at an age where that is no better than moving backward. He might be a good trade chip for a second-division team.
2011 For every slugger in his mid-20s on the right-hand side of the defensive spectrum, there comes a season in which he must put up or shut up, move quickly or move on, develop or bust. Rizzotti got the message, hit well at High-A Clearwater, and then switched on the afterburners at Double-A Reading. A product of Manhattan College (a school that gave baseball the seventh-inning stretch but few major leaguers of late), Rizzotti is big, left-handed, and balding, and he's less likely to discover the secret to above-average defense than he is to regrow a thick head of hair (especially if you believe the infomercials). It really is a pity that he's not a righty, since it's difficult to divine his path to the big leagues with the Phillies, even in a bench role. He might need a trade to blossom as a cheap power source a few years down the road.
