Scouting the 2019 Draft: Daniel Espino

Daniel Espino, RHP, HS.  DOB:  1/5/2001.  6'2", 200 lbs.

Espino is a hard throwing HS righty who can sit in the mid-90's and hit 99 MPH at the Under Armour All-America Game which topped Hunter Greene's previous record.  He backs that up with a solid slider and curveball and a nascent changeup.  On video, he's got big, strong upper legs and butt that allows him to drop and drive.  The arm action is long and smooth with a strong follow-through.  He's committed to LSU so could be a challenging sign if he drops too far in the draft.


Going forward, I won't update my draft board unless I profile a prospect that bumps someone out of the top 10.  I would currently project Espino in the 12-25 range of draft picks.
