Joey DeBernardis is a 2008 IF/P with a 6'2'', 190 lb. frame from Lake Zurich, IL who attends Lake Zurich HS. He has a broad shouldered strong build with a solid lower half. DeBernardis' infield actions were fluid and his feet quick for an athlete his size. The most obvious place to project him to would be third base but he might be the type who could surprise and play some shortstop and second base at the next level and either be a versatile utility player or a positive offensive threat in the middle of the field. His arm strength will play at any position. Offensively, DeBernardis has a quick, line drive swing and does a good job staying inside the ball and hitting it deep in the zone. He showed gap to gap power, especially on fastballs, and drove the ball well to right center field. His quiet approach and present bat speed projects him well at the next level. DeBernardis should keep improving and is a solid all around prospect.
