Scouts agree Danish has been Florida's top prep pitcher this year--an indication that it's a down year in the Sunshine State. Because while Danish has filthy stuff, he doesn't fit the profile scouts are looking for in the usually talent-rich state's top pitcher. Listed at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds but thought to be shorter and heavier, Danish has attacked hitters all spring with two plus pitches. His fastball comes in at 90-93 mph with heavy sink and late life, thanks in part to an arm slot comparable to that of big leaguer Jake Peavy. He produces a hard slurve from that slot and varies his arm slot with that and his changeup when necessary, showing a strong feel for his secondary stuff. The Florida recruit has a bit of a head whack in his delivery, which is smoother now but still has more effort than a typical starter. He's also a 6-foot righty, a tough profile to run up a draft board. His competitiveness and feel for pitching should still put him in the first five rounds, where his Florida commitment starts to come into play.
