Dane Derstine is a 2007 C with a 6'0'', 170 lb. frame from Sarasota FL, who attends Riverview HS. He has a slender build with plenty of room to add strength. Derstine shows very good quickness defensively and solid arm strength. He threw 74 mph during catching drills and had a best pop time of 1.98. His game throws were very accurate and he's going to control the running game with his combination of arm strength and accuracy. Derstine is not only quick, he also can run , as his 7.12 60 time shows. Offensively, Derstine has a line drive swing and mostly hits the ball to the opposite field. His lack of present strength hurts his ability to drive the ball but Derstine does a good job of staying behind the ball, staying within himself and putting the ball in play. He has a chance to be a premium defensive player at a premium position and whatever he contributes offensively will be a plus in the future. Derstine is a solid student as well.
