12/01/2013 - College PREP - Cedar Hill (DFW), TX Warren is a lean, athletic LHP/OF that will graduate in 2014. Currently, he projects best on the mound for the next level. Delivery is repeatable as he uses his lower half well and allows his arm action to work long and well to the plate through a 3/4 arm slot. Fastball shows a range of 73-76 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with late break and shows potential as being a quality pitch. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for with arm side run. Control is a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate is where McDaniel shows best, displaying above average abilities with well above average power through an athletic setup with rhythm. Hands are quick, generating bat speed through level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields and shows a feel for the barrel with ball jumping off the bat when centered, displaying gap to gap pop. In the OF, he utilizes his active feet well in taking proper routes / angles to track balls down as he makes the routine play. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to work to get behind balls more and play through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but needs to work on getting rid of the ball quicker. Warren has potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
