Davis Daniel really helped his draft stock with a very strong outing at the #SECTournament. Power RHP, 93-96 and can manipulate the breaker. Likely 'pen piece. #Brewers #mlbdraft

Daniel is a sophomore, so he has a little extra leverage in negotiations. Imagine the Brewers sign him though.

Perfect Game report from 5/23:

In an extra-inning affair, both Auburn and Kentucky abandoned their freshmen starters in favor of higher-end arms and the Tigers turned to sophomore Davis Daniel in the second inning of the game. The affair certainly had a high stakes feel to it and Daniel exploded onto the season turning in one of his best performances of the season.

The energy in the stadium was palpable, and it was evident from the onset that Daniel was certainly feeding off the atmosphere, as Daniel entered with runners on and two outs then proceeded to go 95-95-96-96 for a strikeout. The fastball velocity played well off the previous pitcher Jack Owen, an upper-80s lefthander, as early on Daniel was simply able to power the fastball by opposing hitters as it exploded out of the hand.

Daniel has a very physical present build, with strength on the mature frame, and that allows him to hold his velocity deep into games even during his most recent few stints as a reliever. Daniel hasn't had the best of seasons, but you couldn't tell that from his outing on Tuesday. Daniel lived 93-96 mph with his fastball and that was his go to pitch to attack hitters with.

The righthanded pitcher has a long, loose arm stroke with whip-like features that allow him to generate arm speed and thus the high levels of velocity. He mostly threw the fastball but he showed both a breaking ball that he could manipulate with both curveball and slider shape in the 77-82 mph range as well as a straight changeup in the 84-85 mph range.

The pitchability stood out for Daniel too as his second time through the order he started pitching backwards, landing his breaking ball for strikes, and mixing in his changeup more often. It was very smart from a pitch-calling perspective, as the fastball was a bit hittable as it was mostly straight, and Daniel showed that he can get outs with more than just the fastball later on in the game.

Daniel got into some trouble early on in the showing, but settled in nicely and shut down a tough Kentucky offense and left Auburn in a situation to win the game. There are some overall reliever concerns due to effort and size, but Daniel opened eyes during this look and turned in an impressive performance.

Also Perfect Game:

Daniel has endured a bit of an up-and-down season for the Tigers, however there are still very attractive MLB tools to the profile with a plus fastball up to 96 mph and offspeed pitches that show promise. Daniel’s pro future offers some reliever risk, but the arm strength alone is worthy of extended looks and his secondary pitches continue to improve with every outing.

#Royals take Korry Howell from Kirkwood CC in Cedar Rapids, IA. Also home of PG. Toolsy SS, rawness to game, has legitimate chance

@B_Sakowski_PG
Brewers going with one of the more intriguing #JuCoRoute players in Kirkwood's Korry Howell. Hyper athletic MIF who can really run and play up the middle, came into some more power this year, really like the upside

Kirkwood Eagles


@KCC_Athletics
Korry Howell was selected as a Second Team All-Region member!
➡️ 39 stolen bases (5th in NJCAA)
➡️ 20 doubles / 5 triples (both 3rd in ICCAC)
➡️ 3.93 batting average

@jeje66
Baseball America's latest MLB draft rankings have Iowa OF Robert Neustrom at 149, Kirkwood SS Korry Howell at 265, Cedar Rapids Prairie OF Levi Usher @Ushman05 at 272. That'd put them all in the top 10 rounds. #iahsbsb #Hawkeyes #Kirkwood

MLB Pipeline:
Howell was drafted by the Royals in the 19th round in 2017 out of junior college, but he elected to stay another season. He hit .401 in 60 games for his Kirkwood team, and he stole 40 bases. Howell is extremely athletic, with 70-80 grade speed, but he's very raw, and teams will have to do a lot of projecting on his bat. A 6-foot-2, 180-pound shortstop for now, Howell could be a center fielder in the future. He could also be headed to Iowa next year, depending on the results of the Draft.

Perfect Game:
One of the premier athletes across JUCO baseball, Howell has had a big season for Kirkwood Community College in Iowa. He slashed .401/.483/.572 with 22 doubles, five triples, two home runs and a remarkable 40 stolen bases. His profile is rested on a ton of fast-twitch athleticism as he's an impact runner who can really change the game on the basepaths. He plays shortstop and is smooth there, with all of the requisite athleticism and tools to stay at the position. He's not a powerful hitter but can make contact and started to drive the ball a little better this year, and some scouts believe there is some untapped power in there that he will get to eventually.

Reese Olson got some buzz late in the spring and the #Brewers grab him here. Might be a tough sign, but there's upside. #mlbdraft

Report on Olson

https://t.co/ZXbYgyrssY

Reese Olson, RHP, North Hall HS (Ga.)

In an abbreviated look, a number of prospects took to a simulated game type of setting on Monday which includes North Hall's Olson, who has looked good this spring as one of the area's top righthanded pitching prospects. Olson's got a very quick arm, and a very lean and lanky 6-foot-1, 155-pound frame that's easy to envision a lot of strength to be added to the frame. The delivery is a bit restrictive with some effort, but the arm speed allows him to create velocity that saw him sit in the 92-93 mph range while bumping 94 mph once. The changeup was the Georgia Tech signee's best secondary pitch on the evening as it was thrown with the same conviction as the fastball and featured late sinking life in the 85-86 mph range that snuck under the bats of lefthanded hitters. The breaking ball wasn't as sharp as it has looked in the past, but Olson is a highly projectable arm with three usable pitches which offers both upside and intrigue.

6Ks thru 2 perfect IP from Reese Olson (2018 GA). Works quickly; lots of S/M on 90-92 FB w/ short ASR. Mixed 11/5 CB for strikes #PGTourney

Howell fits the bill, Uber athletic, raw, up the middle talent! Daniel you are taking the arm over production. Had yet to really figure it out at Auburn yet but power arm is there & has two off speed he will mix in with confidence. High upside power arms are always worth the look. Jacob Barnes was very similar coming out & drafted around same time.

I am about to run into a problem where I need to get actual work done, so official draft thread updates might be a little sporadic for a few hours.

Also from Perfect Game:
Olson, who popped up last summer with a fastball peaking at 93 mph, worked a pair of innings at LakePoint in front of numerous scouts at the 2018 May 14 Pre-Draft live bullpen event. Olson, a Georgia Tech signee, is a skinny 6-foot-1 pitcher with lots of room to fill throughout. He featured a sinking changeup that sat in the 85-86 mph range that accompanied the low-90s fastball well. Olson’s strong showing helped him boost up the rankings list 168 spots to 139.

Good write up on Reese Olson RHP 13th Round

https://www.gainesvilletimes.com/sports ... rgia-tech/


“The lanky right-hander said his fastball is now touching 93 mph, a nice uptick from the 90-91 mph heat he was throwing for North Hall last spring“

The 14th rounder, Elijah Cabell, is going to be a really tough sign. Wouldn't be surprised to see him get away to LSU.

@MLBDraftTracker
14 (425): @Brewers select TNXL Academy (FL) OF Elijah Cabell. http://m.mlb.com/video/topic/262722544/v2074635583 … #MLBDraft


Scouting grades: Hit: 40 | Power: 55 | Run: 45 | Arm: 60 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

TNXL Baseball Academy was started a few years ago in Florida as a place for high-level high school level players to focus more of their day on baseball, while taking care of classwork online through the Florida Virtual School. Cabell has been one of the better products of the academy to date, with some serious upside, though it does not come without risk.

There is no question that Cabell looks the part of an impactful offensive player and has the bat skills to go along with it. He has tremendous raw power with the ability to drive the ball with the kind of different sound you hear from some hitters when he makes contact. With that power, however, comes some considerable swing and miss issues, as scouts see a grooved swing. It goes a long way when the ball is thrown in that groove, but he doesn't always adjust when it's not.

A fringy rurnner, Cabell is a capable outfielder with a very strong arm, and he gets high marks for his makeup. If a team believes he can make enough contact to tap into that power, it could see him as a future run-producing right fielder and take him early enough to keep him from heading to LSU.

Brewers go with a prep upside play in the 14th with Elijah Cabell, big time raw pop and arm strength, things to like there.

Rated 101 in Pipeline top 200.

Elijah Cabell is tooled up. Plus raw power, plus arm, plus speed. If he hits he's going to be a great player.

Elijah Cabell is a surprise this late in the draft, I was on the radio today in Milwaukee saying they should have some money to spend they do it here adding a player with big power and big exit velocity
