Devan is a tall and athletic 2020 OF prospect. In the OF, Devan is on time with his prep step, he has good actions to the ball, and fields the ball in a good fielding position. He creates momentum with his lower half when throwing has some carry on the ball. At the plate, Devan starts in a tall stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and is explosive to the ball. He tries to hit every ball out of the ball park and makes hard contact to all fields. He creates backside drive with his lower half but needs to flatten out his bat path to make more consistent contact. Devan has tremendous upside and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Devan continues to show a prospect on the diamond. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick (90 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. In the OF, he continues to shine. He utilizes his quick/aggressive feet as he moves well laterally, displaying range as he covers a ton of ground. He displays smooth / clean actions with hands / feet working well together through the fielding process as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy on his throws. Devan has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.

Devan continues to show as a prospect on the diamond with the makings of a special type player at the next level. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now an excellent runner at 6.96. In the OF not many balls get down that are hit his way. Transfer exchange is smooth as he zips throws (84 mph velocity) on a line through his target. He has the versatility to play all 3 OF spots effectively. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved. He stands in with a solid/strong base and has fluid rhythm to load. Barrel delivery is short/quick with aggression (89 mph exit velocity) as he connects with power driving to all parts of the field.

Devan is an exciting young outfield prospect with tremendous upside. He garners attention the minute he steps onto the field thanks to an athletic 6'5"/197-pound frame that you can dream on. His left-handed stroke is loose and natural with lots of barrel whip and flashes of big power that will continue to develop. His actions and swing had some comparing the move to that of Daryl Strawberry. In the outfield Devan takes solid routes and shows sure hands and a clean exchange making throws. Overall, this is a potential impact bat at higher levels.
