Damian is a lean 3B/RHP that was a hard worker in the Cape. At 3B, Damian shows quick feet with agile range to the glove and back hand side. He fields the ball square with firm hands. His throws across the diamond are strong with life and a quick arm action. At the plate Damian sets up tall with low and loose hands. He is aggressive in the zone, rotating against a firm front side with a short and fast swing. His contact is consistent, and power shows more to the pull side. On the mound, Damian has a 2-pitch mix with a FB/CH. He sets up in the stretch only and separates on time. His stride is in-line with proper stride length and an athletic finish. Damian has several years to develop and will continue to grow.
