05/29/2021 - 2021 BF National Florida Showcase Derek showed very well at the Baseball Factory Florida Showcase showing high level tools, the ability to play SS and a sweet left-handed swing. He has quiet hands in his set-up and stalks pitches well - balanced and under control. When he lets the barrel fly he makes consistent hard contact to all fields with some juice (99 mph exit velocity). It's a solid approach with a fluid, efficient stroke. He plays low at SS with active feet and soft, confident hands. His lateral range is good and he is a confident defender who looks to be able to stick there at higher levels. Also athletic and 6.81 runner in the 60, there is a lot to like in this prospect.
