Focus Area
Fastball:Danieli started off the game throwing his fastball in the 86-91 mph range, but it tailed off to 86-87 later in the game.
Curve: Danieli threw his curve around 67-71 mph range and was quite soft.
Changeup:Danieli's changeup sat around 80 mph and was a below-average offering in his first start.
Control:As evidenced by the three walks, his command and control were below average.
Poise:Despte bad weather conditions and a lack of good stuff, Danieli battled well and kept his team in the game, a game won by Seton Hall Prep.
Physical Description:At 6-foot-8, Danieli is tall and lanky with plenty of room for projection and growth.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:He's a very good competitor with terrific poise on the mound. He found a way to keep his team in the game without his best stuff.
Weaknesses:In his first start, Danieli's arm speed was just average and there were too many moving parts to his delivery.
Summary:An AFLAC All-American last summer, Danieli was definitely on most follow lists to start the year. The big lanky right-hander has lots of projection, but in terms of now stuff, heís a little inconsistent. Heíll run his fastball into the low 90s, but canít always stay there. His breaking pitch can be good, but itís not always there for him. With his size and potential, someone will undoubtedly be interested, but it probably wonít be high enough to keep him from going to Notre Dame, where three years of college tutelage might do him some good.
