09/04/2020 - HS All-Region Tournament Derek continues to show as a prospect with improvements in his baseball abilities. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.06 with accuracy and carry on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting / power potential are now well above average through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (85 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop.

06/29/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Pittsburgh, PA Derek showed nice upgrades in his game during his last workout in Pittsburgh. Behind the plate, Derek has quick feet, agile range, and he sits in well. He holds a low target, presents his glove, and he centers well when blocking. Derek has a clean exchange and throws with accuracy and momentum to 2nd base. Continuing to add arm strength and playing through the ball will help catching continue to get better. Offensively, Derek has good balance, he stands in squarely, and swings with plus bat speed. He has a short/direct barrel, he makes hard/consistent contact, and he shows the ability to hit to all fields. He increased his exit velocity to 80 MPH at the workout.

10/07/2018 - College PREP - Washington, PA Derek is a quick twitch athlete who showcases impressive tools all over the field. He is very advanced behind the dish with the ability to receive and frame pitches effectively as well as block and keep everything in front. He centers the ball in his body to receive, presenting the ball well and bringing pitches back into the zone. He blocks with a square chest and keeps his chin down to deaden the ball to center. A long toss program will improve arm strength and lower his pop times. At the plate, he has a square setup and string stride to the pitch to keep his body in line. He stays balanced throughout his swing and is direct to the ball to deliver the barrel and spray hits to all fields. Derek is a talented player with lots of potential on the field.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
