10/24/2018 - Under Armour SoCal Classic, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Derek is a coachable SS/3B prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the SoCal Classic. In the field, Derek shows active footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front with soft hands. He makes a quick exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them consistently on-line to his target. At the plate, this LHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a short stride. He is smooth getting into his load and hits from a strong front side. He takes a short swing with decent bat speed which leads to loud contact and gap to gap pop. Overall, Derek is a talented prospect who should find success in this, his junior season.
