Derek Blain is a 2005 middle infielder/outfielder from Waco, Texas. Derek has a stocky build, but is quick with nice foot speed. Defensively Blain has soft hands, plus range, and quick transfers that will allow him to play either middle infield position. His arm might play better at second base at the next level, but his throws are very accurate and on line. Blain hits from an open stance with good balance that generates average bat speed. He does show some pull side power, but pulls off slightly making the pitch away hard to handle. Blain is a good athlete that will make things happen with his quickness and glove.

Blain is an "05" MIF/OF from Waco, TX. At 5'9/155 he has an average frame with athletic strength. Derek runs very well, projects to be a "plus" runner. He shows good range and excellent instincts. He shows a confident demeanor on the field. His arm is playable for a college shortstop, but he profiles best as an outfielder or 2B at the college level. Lots of good quick twitch actions, good feet, above average transfer/releases and online throws. He is a good overall athlete with nice actions. At the plate he shows some pull side power on the inner half. His approach is good with a slight lift in his swing plane and above average bat speed. Good college middle infielder or outfielder.
