06/02/2018 - 2018 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National West This athletic catcher shows a bright future on the diamond with the makings of a special type player at the next level. Offensively, he has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage - resulting in a barrel explosion (86 mph exit velocity) with the ball coming off well of his barrel from both sides of the plate. With flexion and good sway he pockets pitches with a soft/sure mitt. He shows off his athletic abilities through the blocking process as he is a wall behind the plate. Pop times showed in the 1.85 range with accuracy/on line carry (95 mph velocity) on his throws. Darius has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from top collegiate coaches and pro scouts with his baseball abilities.
