2004 South Top Prospect Showcase  
Darrien Acy-King is a 2005 OF from Balch Springs, TX. Acy-King is a very good athlete with above average present strength and some baseball skills. Aside from his obvious strength, the first thing that jumps out at you is Acy-King’s arm. He really has three different arms at three different positions. As an outfielder, Acy-King’s arm works as smoothly and loosely as you’ll ever want to see and his 91 mph outfield velocity speaks for itself. As a catcher, Acy-King’s arm stroke is much longer and more forced and although he can inch his pop times well below 2.00, it’s on pure 80 mph arm strength. Acy-King’s receiving and blocking skills are raw at this point, too. Acy-King’s arm strength just doesn’t translate as well to the mound, though. You can see the loose whipiness in his arm stroke, but his momentum and leverage never come together towards the plate and he tends to throw around the ball. His fastball was 81-84 mph and he threw a big looping 62 mph curveball. At what position does Acy-King wind up? We don’t know. He did swing the bat very well in Waco. He’s a straight up hitter who uses his hands well in his swing, especially in driving the ball to right field. He doesn’t have much loft in his swing right now, but has the strength to make adjustments down the road. Acy-King’s definitely a player for the next level, but he still has a ways to go before he defines himself as a player. The arm is special.
