10/11/2015 - College PREP - Abilene, TX Derek is a LHH MIF who graduates in 2019. Defensively, he has active prep and comes to get the GB. He makes the backhand play smoothly and has a quick exchange to throw. Continuing to develop his footwork/agility by working lighter on the balls of his feet will help to increase lateral range. With the bat, Derek has a balanced setup with patience, letting the ball travel into the zone. Swing is short/compact as he connects and drives the ball on a line. More lower 1/2 drive will result in increased power. A 2019 grad - Derek has tools with still a lot of time to develop.
