Derek Eligio is a 2007 OF/IF with a 6'2'', 180 lb. frame from Yorba Linda CA, who attends Esperanza HS. Selected as a Top 10 Prospect at this event. Eligio is a lean, strong, athletic player with some explosiveness in his body. He plays the game quite easily and with good feel. Each time we have seen him he is better than the last time. Eligio has very good bat speed and a lively swing, generated with easy effort. He accelerates his hands through contact and does a very nice job of hitting hard line drives from gap to gap. In time he is going to start carrying balls over the fence. He centers the ball on the barrel on a consistent basis. Eligio is a polished, three-hole type hitter with very good present day ability, but is even more exciting to consider what he will be in a few years. Defensively he is a versatile, talented player. In the outfield he has good tools and even better instincts. His raw speed may not suggest that he can play centerfield at a higher level, but his instincts, angles, and jumps on the ball all play well at that position. He is a good student and is going to be one of the top spring recruits in the 2007 class.

Derek Eligio is a 2007 OF/IF with a 6'2'', 180 lb. frame from Yorba Linda CA, who attends Esperanza HS. Named a Top Prospect at this event. Eligio is an athletically built player. He not only is athletically built, he is athletic and has excellent body control that shows up in all phases of his game. He is a polished and talented player, but still has more development ahead. He has somehow slipped through the cracks in fertile Southern California, especially considering he plays at one of the top baseball programs in the state, in the heart of Orange County. Eligio can hit, simple. He has good tools; quick bat, good hand-eye coordination; aggressiveness; nice approach, but it is his feel for hitting that is most impressive. He lets the ball travel and hits the ball hard to all fields. Eligio can make adjustments from at-bat to at-bat, from pitch to pitch, and even adjust his approach between the pitcher's release and making contact. He just has a feel for hitting, and the result is hard line drives to all fields, with power in his future. Defensively he has good body control and strong fundamentals. He sets-up to the ball well, in position to throw. His throws are accurate and he has some arm strength. He could play any of the three outfield positions, though will be best in right or left. However, his instincts and fundamentals are good enough for centerfield on some teams. Eligio is a good student and an oustanding player.
PG Grade 8.0
