Daniel is a talented C/3B that will graduate in 2023. Behind the dish Daniel shows athletic actions with a quiet glove. In his secondary he gains ground with clean exchanges getting rid of the ball with a short arm action and throws that carry with life. His blocking footwork is on time with good spine angle and quick feet. At the plate Daniel sets up in square stance with high and loose hands. His load is small and square getting his foot down on time. His bat gets on plane with a fast bat speed making consistently hard contact especially to the pull side. Daniel shows that he knows how to play the game and leads by example. He shows that he has a lot of potential behind the plate and will be a watch for the next few years.
