11/08/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Derrick is an athletic and talented 2021 OF prospect that worked hard all weekend. In the OF, Derrick is on time with his pre-step, he reads the ball off the bat, and is aggressive on ground balls. He creates angles and works behind it the ball, creating momentum in his lower half to throw. He needs to continue to beat the ball to the spot and read swings. At the plate, Derrick starts in an athletic stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He keeps a quiet head, hits off a firm front side, and drive the ball to the pull side. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and create backside rotation to the ball. Keeping a middle approach will allow him to be a more versatile hitter. Derrek is very coachable and will continue to improve with experience.
