07/31/2013 - Baseball Factory Pro Select Training at Vero Beach (Ages 14-18) Derek only showed in the OF at the event but has improved his baseball abilities. Defensive grade in the OF has improved as he utilizes his quick feet well in tracking down balls, displaying range in the OF. Hands / feet work well through the fielding process. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting abilities have improved through a balanced / athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grades will continue to improve as he learns to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and a hard worker.
