Scouting Report:

from Don Olson on 6/18/2013

Smaller compact frame with sloped shoulders, wide hips, development in lower rear, sits about 210 pounds, may have some projection left. Upright delivery, high release, does not get weight over well, 93-96 mph on 4S with just okay movement. He has some shape on the split change with a touch of hand side run to the solid dip in the offering. Daniel has a projectable slider with bite and tilt. Erratic release point and timing leaves command an item to monitor down the road. He does showcase a compact delivery and leverage should allow it to improve down the road. Daniel has very potent arm speed and another year under the belt could iron out the wrinkles. High track and follow at this stage.

Quotes:

A&M catcher Troy Stein- “He’s only a sophomore this year and he’s a great, powerful guy and he pitches with a lot of confidence out there. He has a lot of confidence in himself and he has a lot of confidence in his teammates. He’s going to throw it over the plate. He’s not going to walk anybody. [Mengden]‘s a guy that’ll throw it over the zone and rely on his defense to make plays.”
