LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2021 Jr. National Showcase  
Derek Schaefer is a 2023 RHP/IF, OF, UT with a 6-2 170 lb. frame from Cave Creek, AZ who attends Cactus Shadows High School. Large, athletic frame with square shoulders and long limbs, high waist with room to fill throughout. Ran a 7.16 60-yard dash. Right-handed pitcher, simple turn moving into delivery, balanced and methodical pace to delivery, gets tall on backside with a higher leg lift up past belt; fast arm stroke coming through the backside working to a higher three-quarters release, some effort into release but maintained stuff and worked around the zone. Fastball topped out at 90 mph, worked around the zone and able to generate some heavy life down which resulted in weak ground ball contact, can get additional finish over front side. Showed a pair of secondary pitches, slider the more advanced at present, up to 80 mph with short life and tight spin, developing feel for changeup. Right-handed hitter, begins with an even stance and a high hand set and back elbow at the plate; utilizes a leg lift trigger for timing, stays short to hte ball and shows quickness to hands. Simple swing, creates extension out front and shows life and lift at point of contact, looseness to hands, power projects. Very good student. Verbal commitment to Washington.
