Scouts were interested in Destino out of high school in the Asheville, N.C., area, as he had present physicality and a fastball up to 92 mph. He had a difficult spring on the mound and had a strong commitment to South Carolina, where he had made just two appearances on the mound. Instead, the lefthanded batter has focused on his duties at the plate and in the outfield. hitting 26 home runs over three seasons. Plus lefthanded power is now Destino's calling card, and he can bang hanging breaking balls and average velocity. Scouts have their doubts about his ability to hit plus fastballs, but his power will get him drafted. He's played mostly left field for South Carolina, as he's a modest athlete and below-average runner but has at least average arm strength.
