A member of the all-Pac-12 team as a sophomore after leading Stanford with 17 home runs, 63 RBIs and a .579 slugging percentage in 2018, Daschbach is a power-hitting corner infielder who has continued to mash this spring. Through his first 49 games, Daschbach posted a .314/.397/.646 slash line with 15 home runs and nine doubles, although those numbers coincided with a 20 percent strikeout rate. Daschbach’s impressive power also played with a wood bat, as he hit .306/.424/.515 with five home runs in 40 games in the Cape Cod League last summer. What limits Daschbach is his defensive profile. He’s played third base in the past, but a lack of quickness moved him to first base, where he’s serviceable. It’s a bat-only profile, and scouts think Daschbach’s swing relies more on strength than bat speed. Regardless, he’s produced against high-level competition for long stints throughout his college career.
