8/2/17 Lean 6-foot-1, 160-pound frame, long limbs with plenty of room to add strength. Although he is young for his graduation year, McDaniel is one of the top right-handers in Louisiana’s 2019 class. Long arm action into high-3/4 release with quick arm speed and regular effort. Athletic delivery with rhythm, level shoulders, solid direction at times, but has a tendency to work across his body at times, falling to the first base side of the rubber. Tossed two innings over three days, showing electric stuff on Thursday, as he struck out three batters in one inning of work. Pitching 87-91 mph with his fastball, he creates deception to his delivery with his long limbs, making at-bats uncomfortable for hitters. Displayed a quality 4-pitch mix on Thursday, including a changeup with hard, late fading action at 78-80 mph, a curveball with depth and spin at 70-74 mph, and slider with tight spin and late break at 76-77 mph.
Summer/2017 A 6-foot, 150-pound right-handed pitcher with a lean, projectable build. Long, loose arm action into high-3/4 release with quick arm speed and regular effort. Smooth rhythm, uphill shoulders, falls slightly off to third base, lands square, and finishes athletic. Fastball sits 85-88 mph, touching 90 mph with cutting action. Features a curveball with 12/6 shape that has solid depth, flashes sharpness, tight spin, and fastball arm speed at 70-72 mph. In addition, he has developed a slider that has quality deception off the fastball with 10/4 shape, showing sharp, late break, tight spin, and fastball arm speed at 76-80 mph. Also has shown occasional feel for a changeup with fastball arm speed and sinking action at 75-77 mph.
