Daniel continues to show as a solid MIF both offensively and defensively. Defensively, he has sure hands and he plays thru well to his target. Abilities will improve if he can get pre-pitch movements and become more aggressive. At the plate he swings from both sides. As a RHH, he is consistent and has a middle of the field approach. As a LHH, he stays balanced, he has on-time rhythm, and he creates extension thru contact. Daniel is a solid infielder and should get looks to play at the next level.

Midyett continues to show a lot of improvements in his baseball abilities and now shows as a solid player at the next level. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a well above average runner at 6.99. Feet are active / aggressive attacks ground balls and use 2 hands well. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turns of the double plays. He needs to play through balls more to improve defensive abilities. At the plate is where Daniel has improved the most, now showing well above average hitting abilities from both sides of the plate with outstanding power from the right side. Hands are quick / explosive, generating bat speed to and through the baseball. Swing path is short, direct as he shows a solid feel for the barrel with baseball exploding off his bat when centered. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to load more and transfer weight properly through his lower half.
