Perhaps no one could have used a full 2020 season more than DeLoach. After hitting .236/.338/.338 his first two years at Texas A&M, DeLoach exploded in the Cape Cod League last summer. He hit .353/.428/.541 with five home runs and eight stolen bases for Falmouth, and coaches attributed it to him gaining confidence after having early success. DeLoach kept it up this spring, batting .421/.547/.789 with six home runs and six stolen bases (both career highs) along with 14 walks against just three strikeouts before the seaosn shut down. DeLoach has a solid all-around tool set, but perhaps no plus tools. He has always shown a solid approach with good discipline at the plate, but scouts think he has a bit of a grooved swing without a ton of bat speed. He dives in on pitches and there are questions about how his lower half works, but evaluators also didn’t get a full season to really figure out if the adjustments he made over the summer were real. DeLoach has fringe power more than average or 55-grade juice, but he was off to a much better start in that department in 2020 and had bulked up a bit as well. Now listed at 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, DeLoach fits best in a corner-outfield spot as a solid runner with solid-average arm strength, though some scouts believe he needs to refine his route-running.
