Devin has worked hard and progressed nicely in his game. Offensively, he has a balanced approach with patience in the box. Hands are quick as he jumps on pitches he likes. He connects with strength, extends through the ball and has power to all parts of the field. At 1B, Devin is a big target and can get to almost anything thrown his way. He makes the backhand play smoothly and is sure handed. On the bump, this righty reaches back and fires. Arm works loosely as he repeats well. FB shows slight arm-side run as he throws it for strikes. Breaking ball has 'slider' like action with 10/4 shape. Working to stay on top of his pitches and drive downhill will help to improve effectiveness on the bump. Only a 2018 grad - Devin is a well-rounded 2-way player who can make things happen with the bat.

Devin is a switch hitting 2-way player (RHP/1B). On the bump, his arm works loose & easy as he drives off the rubber in-line toward the plate. He pounds the zone and throws strikes with all 3 pitches. At 1B, Devin works low from the ground-up and fields the ball cleanly. He has a soft mitt and gathers well. With the bat, he shows a patient approach as he lets the ball travel into the zone. He connects and uses the whole field. A young 2018 grad - Devin has a lot of time to develop his skills.

Devin is a two-way player who projects best on the mound. Defensively, Devin makes the routine play and shows good footwork around the bag. He will need to work on his fielding position making sure he stays low. On the mound, he showed a strong pitchers body with good rhythm and tempo to his delivery. Devin can improve by focusing on having better glove side lead, his shoulders tend to spin off target. If he can stay in line to his target he will be able to finish his pitches with more accuracy and velocity. Offensively, he showed consistent contact with power potential. He reaches a strong load but can work on delivering the barrel with more top hand. Overall, Devin is a player who shows a lot of potential as he continues to focus on some fundamental areas of his game.
