Devin continues to shine on the diamond with improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. In the INF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active but needs to be more aggressive in attacking ground balls and playing through with his body. Glove action is soft / clean and presents well out front. Range will continue to improve as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to improvements in his hitting / power potential through an open setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.

Devin is an athletic and talented 2022 2-way prospect that made several adjustments throughout the week at pirate city. At the hot corner, Devin is aggressive to the ball, plays through his back hand, and makes accurate throws. Presenting a low/early glove and working from the ground up will allow him to be a more consistent fielder. At the plate, Devin starts in a crouched stance, loads his hands back, and shows pop to the pull side. He needs to continue to get his front foot down on time, create separation, and be aggressive in fastball counts. On the bump, Devin gathers over the rubber, has good direction to the plate, and repeats his delivery. He needs to continue to work north to south and control the bottom part of the strike zone. Devin will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
