An upside arm from Sunday is RHP Chris Danko (York). Listed at 6-foot-1, 165-pounds, Danko still has a lot of room for added strength as he continues to develop. The wiry right-hander moves with a medium leg-lift into balance point, maintaining a slight bend in his back-knee while striding down the mound. His arm plays long and loose out of the glove from a high ¾ slot, producing a fastball in the 82-83 mph range with life through the zone and slight running action. He went to two breaking balls throughout his ‘pen; the first being a downer 11/5 curveball at 64-65 mph and the second being a tight 10/4 slider with feel for the zone, 67 mph. His final offering was a knuckle ball at 63-66 mph, killing spin and landing for some strikes.
