10/18/15 -- Casey Dana was solid throughout the day as he went 1-for-3 with 2 BB and an RBI sacrifice fly to centerfield. He had a new personal high exit velocity of 92 MPH. He squared up baseballs consistently foul to his pull side and if he sat just a hair, would have been 3-for-3. He played solid defensively, showed above average arm strength with good carry on his accurate throws. He also showed off the athleticism while making a couple instinctual plays.  He pitched a scoreless 9th inning against New York while utilizing just a fastball at 81-83 miles-per-hour. He seemed to be getting through the baseball slightly on the outside of it as most fastballs showed sharp cut.

9/20/15 -- Dana did a good job keeping his stock high. He showed his athleticism right away posting a 7.15 60-yard dash time. He continued to show his strength and power potential with a solid batting practice round. He raised his arm slot defensively just a tick and while it looked less fluid, he did show raw arm strength (85 MPH across the diamond). This was my first time seeing Casey on the mound since the winter of this year and he was excellent. He had slow and steady tempo and a fast arm from a high 3/4 arm slot. Staying directional allowed him to show very good command of his glove side down. His velocity was 82-85 miles-per-hour and the breaking ball had depth and slightly above average spin at 67-69 MPH.

8/12/15 (Hudson Valley Open) -- Dana already has filled out his next level frame at 6'3" 185 lbs. The Montgomery, NY resident who attends Don Bosco Prep in NJ, showed athleticism throughout the event, running a 7.24 60 time along with 90 MPH exit velocity. Listed as a 3B/RHP he projects better at 3B (80 MPH arm strength) at this point but showed potential on the mound. Offensively- Dana hits from a slightly open and spread stance with his lower half and stands more upright from the waist up. Aggressive lower half with some top hand drag creating bottom 1/3 contact which works when he can create the backspin needed to drive the ball but a few times he slipped underneath and put the ball in the air. When able to make this adjustment, look out, as he will find his ceiling in the power department. Defensively- Dana has the athleticism and body type fill that corner INF role. Showed impressive glove side range for his size with and over the top release that featured good carry on his throws. Glove stays soft and could benefit from a quicker transition but all the working parts are there and in order. Pitching- Dana showed some foundational skills on the mound with a calm delivery and an arm that has yet to reach it's full potentional. Dana works from a high 3/4 slot to the point where it may limit his ability to extend and get down in the zone. FB sat 80-81, touching 82 MPH. Throws his 2S as more of cutter (78-79 MPH then a traditional arm side action pitch. Breaking ball checked in at 67-68 MPH with some 11-5 action. Change up needs more feel as it stayed up and was bit on the firm side at 75MPH. Tools and prototypical pitcher's body type are there.  

7/16/15 – Dana possesses a very impressive 6-foot-3 athletic frame and in terms of overall performance, Dana was definitely a top underclassmen. He ran a very impressive 7.18 which is very impressive for an underclass prospect with his frame. Defensively, he showed good actions and instincts and he profiles well at a corner infield position, showing good instincts. He has a strong arm with carry. His ability to move laterally could be improved with hip mobility work. Offensively, Dana showcased impressive bat speed and pop, indicated best by his 90 mile-per-hour exit velocity off the tee. He also did a nice job with the batting practice portion. He hits with a tall, open stance and has a nice stride used for timing. He hits with a high back elbow into his load and had a strong swing with obvious bat speed. He has a slightly uphill swing which allowed him to crush a couple balls in game with leverage. He finishes each swing with balance and repeatability.
