It’s taken scouts, including the Perfect Game staff, a bit longer than usual to figure out Florida high school right-hander Tyler Danish. But that’s understandable in that Danish, ranked No. 30 in the latest Perfect Game 2013 class rankings, has nothing that is usual about his pitching mechanics and doesn’t profile in the same way as a normal high school right hander.
Danish was a 6-foot, 170-pound primary third baseman as a sophomore in high school and when he took the mound threw from a standard high three-quarters release point.
