Derrick (D.J.) Fitzgerald is a 2007 right hand hitting middle infielder from Ocean Lakes HS, residing in Virginia Beach, VA. Fitzgerald has a compact, strong, athletic build on a 6'0" 178 lb. frame. He was ranked #78 among PG National Top 100 position players. Fitzgerald hits from a square stance and employs a quiet hitting approach. He has a quick bat and swings aggressively, but stays in control of that swing. When hitting his best he hits the ball the other way. He is a line drive contact hitter with enough speed to put pressure on the defense. Fitzgerald's swing plane is pretty flat and he is short the ball, while regularly putting together quality, competitive at-bats. He looks to be a solid two-hole type that can drive in some runs. Fitzgerald is capable of playing either middle infield spot but looks more comfortable and polished at 2nd base. His arm rates as solid average in raw arm strength, with a release that works better for him at 2nd. He has enough arm to go across the diamond, but it takes a bit more effort than will play as well when the game moves at higher speeds. He does have enough athleticism to develop a quicker release, keeping shortstop as an option. A good runner, Fitzgerald ran 4.49 home/1st with a 6.83 60 yard time. Like most players, his underway speed is better than his burst out of the box. It is likely that a handful of area scouts will check in on Fitzgerald from time to time this spring, afterall he does play in one of the hotbeds for prospects the last number of years and his a good player. Look for him to play D1 ball and continue to develop into a stronger professional prospect in a few years.

DJ Fitzgerald is a 6' 178 pound 2007 shortstop from Virginia Beach, Virginia who attends Ocean Lakes High School. He has a very athletic body who has advanced strength for his age. DJ showed some of his skills during the workout by running a 7.18 60 and throwing 80 mph across the infield. He showcased his speed again during the game by running a 4.38 down the line. Fitzgerald has a very quick bat with plus power and good balance and leverage in his swing. He has the ability to drive the ball with authority to all fields and should develop even more power as he matures more. In the field, he has very good shortstop actions with a quick transfer from his glove to his hand and a strong arm to finish the play. He fields the ball out in front of his body with exceptional balance and body control. He seems to glide through his throws with his ball carrying very well. Dj was one of the top players at the event who was named to the Top Prospect game. He is a solid overall prospect who will be on many "must see" lists.
