Physical Description:Desme is a strong athletic shortstop-turned-outfielder.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Desme has five-tool potential and can do just about everything well.
Weaknesses:While he does make adjustments at the plate, he struggles with breaking stuff.
Summary:Desme was a college bat on the rise before a broken wrist ended his season early. Itís not expected that his injury will have a huge impact on his draft status. A five-tool player, he could be one of the better college position players in the draft, especially considering the dearth of college offensive talent in this class.
