Daniel Bibona
Name: Daniel S. Bibona

High School: Santa Margarita HS, Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.
College: UC Irvine
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 170 lbs

Drafted in the 8th round (259th overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2010 (signed for $45,000)
UC Irvine's Bibona didn't sign as the Cardinals' 16th-round pick last year and had another banner season for the Anteaters, going 9-2, 2.10 with a 100-15 strikeout-walk ratio in 90 innings. He's 30-6 the last three seasons overall. Bibona is not physically imposing at 6 feet, 170 pounds, and he doesn't have dominant stuff, but he has a strong track record of performance. Reminiscent of Tom Glavine in build and approach, Bibona throws his fastball at 86-89 mph, with excellent movement and command. He can run into trouble when he attempts to overthrow the fastball, and he doesn't have the raw velocity to challenge hitters up in the zone. He has a solid feel for his changeup, and some scouts believe his curveball is his best pitch. Bibona can take vary its speed, down to 74 mph or up near slider speed at 78-79. Bibona can eat away both corners of the plate with both his fastball and curve.
