    McDaniel hit .355/.520/.700 in 252 plate appearances with more walks (60) than strikeouts (52) for Maine to lead the America East Conference in walks and OBP while ranking second in slugging and OPS and third in stolen bases (32 in 38 attempts). He also doesn’t turn 21 until September, so he’s young for a college junior. McDaniel is one of the most patient hitters in the country Not only does he not chase much, he just doesn’t swing often, rarely offering at breaking stuff. When he does swing, it’s unorthodox and not the most efficient, starting with a big hanging leg kick. It has worked for him so far, though he rarely faced a pitcher this spring who threw above 90 mph, so he might have to condense some of his movements in pro ball. McDaniel makes quality contact, but it’s not big raw power, with a chance for 10-15 home runs. A plus runner, McDaniel is an offensive-minded player who isn’t especially rangy at second base and will need to be more consistent with his hands. Some scouts think he can be an adequate defender at second base, with speed that could lend itself to the outfield as well.
