Dan is a solid/athletic (6'1"/170) R/R OF. With the bat, this RHH shows a square setup with centered balance and a solid base. He swings on a level path, squares the ball up and hits line-drives. Getting loaded sooner along with utilizing his lower 1/2 more throughout the swing well help to increase power. In the OF, Dan hustles to his right and left to track down fly-balls. He secures the ball and has a clean exchange to throw. Playing through the ball and gaining more ground toward his target will help to get more into his throws. A 2018 grad - Dan still has time to develop his tools to get to where he wants to be.
