Scouting Report

8/11/21

Derrick is another efficient mover, with well above-average pelvis and torso rotation velocities. This puts him in a great position to take advantage of all the coiled up energy he generates from top-5 horizontal abduction in our group. Derrick touched 90.4 mph with his FB that has lower spin at 1967 avg which tends to induce a high GB%.
