12/27/2013 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic
Devin is an athletic outfielder who also catches. In the OF he has quick feet, sure hands, and takes good routes to the ball. He is aggressive with his approach and has very good body control. His exchange is quick and he makes accurate throws to his target. Behind the dish he receives with soft hands, has quick feet, and shows proper blocking technique. His exchange is quick and he stays in line with his throws. He is a student of the game and works to make himself and his pitchers better. At the plate he has an athletic setup, good load, and strong balance. He has good rhythm and lets the ball travel allowing him to track the baseball. Should continue to hit at a high level with his approach and will be fun to watch as he moves forward in the game.
08/11/2013 - National Tryout - Kapolei (Honolulu), HI
Devin has made great improvements in his game. He shows quick foot speed in the OF (now running a 7.18 60 yard dash). He takes good angles and works behind the fly-ball well. He is aggressive and shows good range, tracking down balls hit into the gaps. Behind the plate, this backstop gets rid of the ball quickly (pop times of 2.00). He tracks the ball into his mitt and sticks it. He shows good flexion and the ability to get around balls in the dirt, centering/deadening them off of his chest. Offensively, Awai shows good rhythm and gets back into a strong loaded position. He swings on a level path and is a contact type hitter.
01/22/2012 - College PREP - Kapolei (Honolulu), HI
Devin is a lanky and athletic catcher that will graduate in 2014. Defensively, he shows good pre-pitch prep, he tracks the ball well and has a clean exchange to throw. He gains ground to his target, he has quick feet and makes consistent throws to second. He needs to work to center the ball better while blocking and increase his overall arm strength. At the plate, he shows a solid pre-pitch load, good balance and he makes good use of his lower half. He is on plane, he has a level swing path and shows a line-drive approach. Getting his front foot down early consistently and attacking the inner half pitch out front are a few areas to continue to improve upon. Devin shows good abilities for his age both offensively and defensively and will continue to get better with overall strength and maturity.
