12/27/2021 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2
Diego is a coachable 2025 prospect out of Fredericksburg, TX who played 3B and RHP during his time at Pirate City. Defensively, Diego showed a presentable glove, some range, and the ability to field in rhythm. He works to keep the ball in front of his body, his exchange is clean, and Diego throws with accuracy to his target. On the mound, Diego shows good poise and composure, he stands over the rubber well balanced, and he competes well in the zone. He has a quick arm circle, good direction toward home, and he lands with a proper length stride. Offensively, Diego has a consistent stick through a balanced approach. He stands in squarely, loads his hands back, and swings with some strength.

Diego is a 3B/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2025. Medium frame athletic build with strength present and plenty of room to add throughout. At 3B, he works to center the baseball and makes routine plays. Works into a low fielding position and tracks the ball to glove with a low funnel. Made accurate and on-line throws from a high 3/4 arm slot and an arm velocity up to 70mph. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber and works with good tempo. He showed ability to throw strikes with all of his pitches. He attacks hitters with a FB that sits 63-65mph, a breaking ball with 9/3 shape, and a developing changeup. FB was best pitch during his bullpen session. At the plate, he hits from a tall and open stance. A small hand load, with quickness to hands, and ability to hit ball where pitched. Gets on-plane early and showed a fast bat through hitting zone. During his round of BP, he hit balls hard to all fields with a bat exit velocity up to 78mph. With 4 years of continued growth and development, we foresee him having a bright future on the baseball field.
