Walter on Lanzilli
"Chris is a strong and physical right-handed hitter who is competing for time in our outfield. He has power to all fields and is as tough a competitor as we have on our ball club. He will one day soon be a middle-of-the-order type bat in this program as his strike zone discipline and offensive approach mature. He has the makings of being an outstanding college hitter."
