07/17/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Damein is an athletic and talented 2022 2-way prospect. Behind the plate, Damein starts in an athletic primary and secondary. He works behind the ball and has strong hands when receiving. He needs to continue to lead with his glove and square his chest up to the ball when blocking. He has a strong arm but having a clean exchange will increase his times to 2B. At the plate, Damien starts in a squared stance and gets his front foot down on time. He backspins the ball, sees the ball deep, and shows pop to the pull side. Continuing to be aggressive on the fastball and rotating the back hip into the ball will increase his ability to drive the ball to all fields. On the bump, Damien gathers over the rubber, separates in time, and works north to south. He sits 66-69 with his fastball and has a 10-4 break with his breaking ball. Damien needs to continue to increase his work load and improve his pre-game routines. He will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
