01/17/2014 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at Pirate City Darian is a L/L junior who came to Pirate City as a LHP and OF. Defensively, he competes with good body control and ready hands to field. He has present strength and will become more fluid when he works his agility and repetition. On his throwing, he can also work on developing a more fluid arm action through consistent and proper long toss. Offensively, he gets to a good hitting position and has a direct path to the ball. He is level with his plane and generates good bat speed. Hitting grades can improve with better balance as he finishes his swing, and making more consistent contact as opposed to hitting under the ball, which he does at times. On the bump, he showed good movement on his pitches and repeated his delivery. Getting better extension, developing a less restricted arm action, and being more on time with his separation are a few areas that he can work on to increase his pitchability. Overall, Moody shows good body language no matter the situation, and he is constantly competing.
