09/13/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Troy (Albany), NY Derrike is a lean RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. He works to a controlled balance point, has smooth separation and fires from a clean/loose arm action. He gets strong glove-side lead and stays directional toward the dish. FB ranges from 78-81 mph with tailing action. Breaking ball shows 12/6 shape with tight spin and downward break, showing as a quality pitch. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but throws too hard, resembling fastball. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a tall, open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 2 years to further develop, Derrike has potential with time and room to progress his game.
