Davis Daniel is probably the hottest prospect in the Angels system right now. After winning two Pitcher of the Week awards in High A, he was named one of the best players in all of minor league baseball for the month of June. That dominance led to a promotion to AA last week.
He took some time to catch up today. For those of you who don’t remember, Davis Daniel pitched only one game his junior year at Auburn. He injured his elbow and needed Tommy John surgery. However, the Angels selected him in the 7th round of the 2019 draft based on his upside and planned on easing him into action in 2020.
Minor league baseball obviously didn’t happen in 2020 so this is Daniel’s first taste of professional ball. Thus far, the upside that made him the Alabama player of the year in high school is surfacing.
For those of you who would like to follow him on his rise to Anaheim, he’s @Davis_Daniel13 on Twitter.
