10/27/2013 - College PREP - Peachtree City (Atlanta), GA DeMarcus is a lean 1B/OF that will graduate in 2015. At the plate is where Reid shows best through a squared setup with balance. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grade to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more and builds more overall body strength. Currently, he projects best defensively in the OF for the next level. He plays with a ton of energy and makes the routine plays. In the OF, he utilizes his feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to work on getting behind balls more and play through with momentum to his target. At 1B, feet are active as he works to square balls up, displaying clean hands as he plays under control. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to play through balls while presenting hands more out front and develop better footwork around bag. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. With 2 years to further develop, DeMarcus has abilities with time and room to improve.
