Although none of his tools stand out more than the others, Fontana is an all-around solid ballplayer. He possesses excellent plate discipline and an ability to make contact that could make him a second-division reserve infielder in the major leagues. His speed is a bit of a drawback, as he’s only an average runner.

He’s a sound defender at shortstop who takes care of the baseball. However, his lack of arm strength and range might call for a switch to second base in the future, where his bat and ability to get on base will be a premium.

Fontana’s overall ability and excellent makeup give him the potential to reach the major leagues fairly quickly, as he’s the type of player who could serve as a reserve utility infielder at some point late in the 2014 season.
