09/12/2010 - College PREP - Adrian (Detroit), MI Derek is a young, thin, 3rd baseman that will graduate in 2012. Defensively, Derek has average hands and feet, and he makes plays on balls hit his way. He fields the ball cleanly, does a nice job on the slow roller, and he throws with good accuracy to his target. Defensive numbers will get better with a lower approach, quicker feet, and by playing though the ball more. Offensively, Derek has good balance and average bat speed. He has a short swing path, good extension, and he puts the ball in play. Derek will need to get his front foot down sooner, improve his bat speed, and spray the ball to all fields in order for average hitting numbers to get better.
