Danny Ciaccio is a 5'11", 195 lb., catcher from Wesley Chapel, Florida. Behind the plate he showed pop time ranges from 2.12-2.24 with a top velocity of 74 mph. Danny has some arm strength with good footwork and transfers. He is a right handed hitter with a medium stance and slight rock back load. He gets a good hand set and a short, quick path to the ball. He tends to drift out early on many pitches and loose some of his natural strength and bat speed. Danny has improved his overall body quickness and life since we saw him earlier in the summer, which is a good direction that he needs to keep working on. Danny really helped the PG staff work through all the rain problems in North Carolina by catching numerous extra bullpens and making himself available for whatever extra work was needed. He has a great attitude about being at the ball park and loves to play. Danny is a very good student and his best years are ahead of him.

Danny Ciaccio is a 5'11", 200 lb. catcher from Florida who shows some good physical ability and strength but who is going to have to firm up his body to take advantage of his baseball skills. Ciaccio generates some very good raw bat speed at the plate but has a large hand hitch to trigger his swing which sometimes left him behind the ball in games. Ciaccio’s best defensive tool is his arm strength, which is pretty solid and better overall body quickness would give him college level pop times consistently. Ciaccio looks like he really likes to play the game, too, and is a winning type player. Danny is a good student.

Danny Ciaccio -- Ciaccio is a thick bodied junior catcher from Florida with strength in his hands and shoulders. He hits from a no stride approach with a full swing and good ability to make solid contact with the ball. Ciaccio probably hits the ball hard frequently with aluminum but his approach makes it difficult to hit the ball hard with wood. Ciaccio showed good arm strength down to second base at 78 mph. The strong arm makes him a legitimate good catching prospect..
