03/10/2019 - National Tryout Plus - Raleigh, NC
Destan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He did show in the OF for the first time at the event. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a solid runner at 7.30. At the plate, he has improved his power potential through a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. At 2B, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind and plays through with his body. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but he will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program.
