01/27/2019 - National Tryout Plus - Dayton, OH
Devon worked out both on the mound and at 3B during his last workout with The Factory. On the mound, Devon keeps his eyes on target, he has good direction toward the plate, and he competes in the zone with his FB. He topped out at 69 MPH with his FB and ranged from 60-61 MPH with his CB. At 3B, Devon moves well to the ball through playable/efficient footwork. He moves well to his glove side, his exchange is clean, and he throws with good direction across the diamond. At the plate, Devon has a tall set-up, good balance, and he tracks the ball well. He will need to work on rhythm, lower body, and barrel accuracy for hitting numbers to get better.
07/17/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14)
Devon is an athletic and talented 2022 2-way prospect. At the hot corner, Devon fields the ball in front of his body, he has a clean exchange, and makes accurate throws. Having an active prep step and presenting a low/early glove will allow him to work from the ground up. At the plate, Devon starts in an open stance, gets his front foot down on time, and stays balanced through contact. Continuing to create rhythm in his load and back hip rotation will allow him to get his hands inside the ball. On the bump, Devon gathers over the rubber, has a quick arm action, and repeats his delivery. He has good action on his 2 seam FB and shows good speed differential with his breaking ball. Devon will continue to improve with experience and to learn and understanding how to learn from mistakes. We hope to see his progress in the future.
