06/15/2013 - Omaha National World Series - Session 1 Derek continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities on the mound. Arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date, topping out at 82 mph. Fastball shows arm side run, and he uses it effectively, especially against right hand hitters. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with sharp breaking action and shows as a quality pitch against both righties and lefties when he stays on top. Control is a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Derek did a good job of mixing pitches and knows how to pitch. His control and delivery have been great each time we have seen him. His stock on the mound will continue to rise as more arm strength is gained, but overall he is a poised LHP that will be able to help a college program next year.
