2016 South Uncommitted Showcase  
Derek Vega is a 2017 RHP/3B with a 5-10 185 lb. frame from North Richland Hills, TX who attends Fort Worth Christian HS. Medium, broad shouldered frame with present strength proportioned throughout. Ran a 7.78 60-yard dash. Primary righthanded pitcher, begins delivery with a simple leg lift just above belt, does a nice job of getting tall on backside and shows nice tempo throughout. Lands on line with front side towards the plate, stays short in the back with arm stroke while working to a three-quarters arm slot. Gets on top of ball and able to generate short plane to fastball, topped out at 80 mph, mostly true in life, induced ground ball contact and worked down in the zone. Holds out of the stretch, attacks with fastball and flashed short running life. Nice hand speed on curveball, throws 11-5 shaped pitch for strikes consistently regardless the count and can get hitters to chase down in the zone. Righthanded hitter, full path through the zone, employs a pull side approach in the box, gets the barrel to the ball with a high finish through it. Very good student.
