LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2020 Northeast Indoor Showcase (Sunday)  
Dan Merkel is a 2021 RHP/OF with a 6-0 185 lb. frame from Millstone, NJ who attends Allentown. Recorded a 4.97 second 40-yd dash time. Medium frame with a high waist and present athleticism. Primary outfielder who showed off two-way potential during the event. Energetic actions into the fielding process with a clean funnel out in front, momentum through release and online throws with carry. Showed off loud throwing arm during outfield drills, recording online throws up to 92 mph. Secondary right-handed pitcher with a repeatable, quick paced delivery. Starts square, moving into an inward leg lift and explosive hips during lower body movements. Shows ability to command both sides of the plate from a high three-quarters slot, creates downhill plane with energy through release. Mixed in a quick, short biting slider with 11-to- shape for swings and misses. Sequenced both pitches well, changing eye levels often and elevating with purpose. Right-handed hitter with an upright, even stance and exaggerated high back elbow. Quick twitch athlete with inside-out swing path and some bat-to-ball skill, will improve with proper swing adjustments. Athleticism, arm strength and two-way potential are intriguing. Excellent Student. Named to the 2020 Northeast Indoor Showcase Top Prospect List.
