01/14/2022 - 2022 Baseball Factory Rookie Pre-Season All-America Tournament
Damian is a 2025 prospect out of Killeen, TX who is a very solid 2 way player in the 2025 class. The OF/RHP features many qualities that give him a high ceiling. He has time to build upon his current skills and continue to blossom into a solid prospect. Immediately noticeable is the raw velocity at 88mph which is advanced for his age. He does a good job working behind the ball in the outfield, takes good routes, and follows his throw. The ability to cover ground is also quite impressive. On the mound he shows low 80s velocity with sound mechanics and has a two pitch arsenal. His CB is advanced for his age and has good velocity. An 11-5 shape type of CB. At the plate he can really swing the bat and projects some potential pull-side power. Damian keeps a direct path with good bat speed, offering him the opportunity to become a power hitter. There is a lot of upside with this 2025 graduate and the potential is there to really blossom into a top tier high school prospect.
