Scouting Video: Daniel Norris, LHP, Science Hill (TN) HS (2011 Draft)

By
March 17, 2011

Daniel Norris is actually seen hitting early in the clip, but you won’t see much of that unless he ends up in the National League. On the bump, you can see what you want to like. Out of a full windup, he’s smooth and easy. This is what an advanced high school left-handed draft prospect looks like. Tell me this, if this was a college guy, would you want him? Well, he’s three years younger, which means chances are he won’t get to college. And if he does, say hello to Friday night. Otherwise by this time next year, he’ll be in spring training on the minor league side.

That’s not the case this year, where the big arms really stand out. If you’re really a devotee of the scouting arts and not completely reliant on the radar gun to make your decisions for you, you will find some guys on this list who won’t be 86-88 in a few years. Which ones? Anyone’s guess. But use projection, look at arm speed, look at body, look for smoothness and you will find the big leaguers who come from the masses.

Aflac Home Run Derby and Scrimmage Notes

SAN DIEGO — Here’s a look at what you got in a five-inning look Friday and a shortened BP followed by a first-round home run contest Saturday. I have to admit, it wasn’t exactly the full speed infield, use the whole field BP, or every pitcher gets a look type of look I was hoping for. But as happens in games, you have to take what the players give you. The pre-game Sunday infield was much more crisp.
