Derek Baum is a 2008 C/OF with a 5'11'', 175 lb. frame from Santee, CA who attends Grossmont HS. He has a strong and compact build well suited for catching. Baum is a good baseball player with aptitude for the game and good all-around ability for the college game. Offensively he has a chance to be a middle of the line-up RBI man. He has strong hands and good bat speed, generated with a compact stroke. He lets the ball travel and hits the ball hard in the middle of the field. Defensively Baum is an above average defensive catcher. He showed off quick feet behind plate and a strong, quick arm. His catch/throw skills are solid and playable now. Baum also did a nice job on pop-ups, which seems to be a very difficult for many high school catchers. He plays with good energy and has a steady, consistent approach to the game. Should be a very solid D1 college catcher.

Derek Baum is a 2008 C/OF with a 5'11'', 175 lb. frame from Santee, California, who attends Grossmont High School. Baum has a compact frame with athleticism. Defensively he has an accurate arm from behind the plate with solid arm strength at 75 mph. He sets up well, and has the ability to block pitches in the dirt. Baum does a good job keeping the ball in front. He receives well giving the umpire a good look. At the plate he is a right handed hitter who hits from a crouched stance with a wider base. Baum crouches on his back leg and does not take a stride. He has a line drive swing plane, and he shows bat speed through the hitting zone. Baum stays back on off-speed pitches. He is a contact hitter who looks to put the ball in play. Baum has speed on the bases as well. He is an excellent student.
