12/27/2015 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 Darren is a fundamentally sound athlete who showed well during his time at the Winter Classic. At SS, he is a smooth / fluid fielder with hands / feet working well together as he plays through the ball toward his target. Glove action is sure as he presents well out front. He has a quick exchange with accurate throws across the diamond. Offensively, he has fluid rhythm to load and waits for his pitch. He works on time and uses his lower half well through a short / direct swing path. Hands are quick and work inside the ball as he utilizes all fields through a line drive type swing path. He engages his lower half well and shows a feel for the barrel with the baseball jumping off of his bat when centered. At the event, he was 3 for 8 with 3 singles. On the mound, fastball showed in the mid 60 range. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He stays directional and repeats his delivery well. He attacks the zone - challenging hitters to swing the bat. With 5 years to further develop, Darren has skills with still time to progress and physically mature (get stronger).
