08/30/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Wilmington, DE Derek is a R/R SS who graduates in 2026. With the bat, this righty shows a tall setup with patience as he tracks pitches into the zone. He jumps on pitches he likes and looks to spray the ball to all parts of the field. Working to swing with more bat speed and engage his lower 1/2 will help to increase power at the plate. At SS, he shows active prep taking good angles and picking out the hops. He tracks the ball into his mitt and makes the plays. Continuing to develop his footwork/agility will help to increase lateral range. Derek has potential with time and room to progress his game.
