LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2006 National Underclass Showcase  
Derek Niesman is a 2009 OF/IF/P with a 5'10'', 180 lb. frame from Wellington FL, who attends Kings Academy. He has a medium frame with good present strength for his age. Niesman hits out of a slightly open, crouched stance and takes an aggressive hack at the ball. His swing is upper body rotational and he has strong hands and generates good bat speed with a line drive swing plane. The ball jumps off his bat pretty well and he can get it up the gaps. Defensively, Niesman has very sound fundamentals for his age and nice arm strength. He's balanced approaching the ball and accurate with his throws. Niesman is a 7.12 runner and could improve his speed some as he gets older and have centerfield skills. It would be interesting to see him play in the infield as well, as his bat would play bigger there. Niesman is a nice young player with good all around tools. He's also a good student.
