12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic Darien is a good, hard-working kid who is very coachable, wants to learn how to improve himself as a catcher, and a positive player. Defensively, as a catcher, Darien has a good setup and quickness in his throwing transitions. He will continue to improve on his ability to stick and frame pitches and improve his lateral movements behind the plate. As a hitter, Darien keeps his hands inside the ball with a squared and balanced stance. He will continue to progress at the plate as he improves his bat speed, hitting posture and swing path.
