Daily Draft Video: Dan Child

by Nick J. Faleris

Oregon State’s Dan Child (RHP) profiles as a power reliever at the next level thanks to a plus fastball and an improving slider that flashed plus with USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team this summer. Child mixes in a low-80s changeup from time to time with some fade, though it is not yet advanced enough to be a true weapon against lefties. His high slot and deception leading up to release limits reaction time for hitters and helps his arsenal to play-up across the board. Today’s video features Child pitching during USA Baseball’s second annual Prospect Classic, which pits members of the USA Collegiate National Team and 18U Team against each other over a short exhibition series.
