Cassidy McDaniel is a 2007 RHP/1B from Fauquier HS in Warrenton, VA with a 6'6", 225 lb. frame. Cassidy has a tall athletic build that is ideal for a pitcher. He throws from a high 3/4 arm slot with a long loose arm action. Cassidy is able to get good extension out front and his arm works well. He shows a sharp downer CB and still has the potential to throw harder. Cassidy seems to have a little too much movement in his delivery and they can cause his mechanics to be inconsistent at times. At the plate Cassidy shows off some big raw power potential. He is somewhat of a raw prospect at the plate as his swing is very long and his approach might be overly aggressive. At first base Cassidy is light on his feet and shows off his big arm. Cassidy is committed to Radford, but could see some draft attention with some cleaning up in his mechanics.

Cassidy McDaniel is a 2007 RHP/1B with a 6'5'', 220 lb. frame from Warrenton VA, who attends Fauquier HS. He has a plus athletic body that is very strong but he maintains nice quickness and looseness for his strength and size. McDaniel's best pitch is a 75 mph curveball that has good power to hit and a nice, sharp break. He throws his fastball in the 84-86 mph range, touching 87, and also throws a 79 mph change. McDaniel's pitching mechanics are raw and out of sync and it looks like he doesn't have a ton of experience on the mound. He does go after hitters aggressively and competes and should be able to add velocity as he smooths things out.. Not surprisingly, McDaniel shows big time power at the plate. He swings hard, with a long, lofted swing and when he makes contact, the ball goes high and far. He could cut down his swing and still hit the ball plenty hard enough to make an impact. McDaniel played a very solid first base, showing good feet and quickness and plus arm strength for the position. He should be very good on double plays. McDaniel ran the 60 in 7.25. He is a very good student as well.

He showed his arm strength in the field by throwing 86 mph from first base during the workout. He had good footwork and plays solid defense. McDaniel is a high level prospect with 2 way potential. He will be heavily scouted by both professional and college teams.
