11/11/2018 - College PREP - Midland, TX Derek is an athletic and talented 2022 2-way prospect. At SS, Derek is on time with his prep step and fields the ball in an athletic position. He plays through his back hand, shows range to both sides of the ball, and makes accurate throws across the diamond. On the bump, Derek gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a loose arm action. He extends thru his delivery and rotates his hips toward his target. His fastball tops out at 83 mph and he has a late break on his curveball. Derek will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
