Darrick is a coachable player who works hard at his game. Behind the plate, he will control the running game thanks to the his quick release and accurate throws (2.03). He shows plus body control and gets around pitches thrown in the dirt. As a hitter, this righty shows good rhythm as he waits for his pitch. He tracks the ball into the zone and delivers his barrel on a short path. More extension through contact will help to increase power at the plate. With Stoeker's skill-set and drive on the field, he will make an impact this upcoming season.

Stoecker has a lean, athletic build on his 6-foot-2 175 pound frame. He was solid all around behind the plate. Showed some arm strength along with good footwork and a clean exchange to throw, resulting in best pop time of 2.08. To receive, he setup low and comfortable, and his hands were sure. Can work to keep his eyes behind the ball more - tended to be a little static with his body, which made him reach some. To block, he moved well laterally and showed athletic ability. Can work to be more stable with his core, and needs to protect his throwing hand. At the plate, he hit from an open stance and worked his hands back well. Stride was long, and jumpy at times, resulting in a lack of stability in his lower half and core. Swing path was a bit long and uphill, and generally was dominated by larger muscles. With work on improved balance he will be in position to use his hands better, keep his head and eyes more steady, and his lower half more stable. Overall, a solid player with talent behind the plate to build on.
