Padilla is a skilled/projectable 2-way player who can make things happen in a variety of ways. With the bat, this righty shows an athletic stance with smooth rhythm to load. Swing is quick/compact to and through the zone as he connects and hits hard line-drives, putting the ball in play consistently. At SS, he shows active prep and comes to get the GB. He tracks the ball into a soft mitt, gathers well and has a clean transfer to throw. On the bump, he has a 3-pitch mix in which to keep hitters guessing. He varies his looks and mixes his pitches well. FB ranges from 74-75 mph as he fills up the zone with strikes. Breaking ball has 11/5 shape with sharp/late action. He has a good feel for his CH as it shows good arm-side run. Demetreus is a talented 2-way prospect who has a bright future ahead of him in the game.

Demetreus is a thin, athletic 2-way player who plays SS and RHP. Defensively, Demetreus has active feet, he moves well to the glove side, and he fields athletically. He creates a good fielding angle, his exchange is quick, and he throws with accuracy from a short arm action across the diamond. On the mound, Demetreus has a loose arm action and a repeatable delivery. He separates his hands on time, he has a controlled landing toward home plate, and he hides the ball well. Offensively, this RHH stands in the box well balanced, he takes a short/square stride toward the pitcher, and he delivers the barrel well. He swings in good rhythm, makes consistent contact, and works the ball gap to gap. Demetreus can improve overall skills with work on the following.
