Richmond Player Profile


Rnd Pk Overall Player Position School State Bonus
2 4 41 Daniel Moore lhp U. of North Carolina NC  $800,000

Definite big league look. Tall, well built. Similar to Steve Avery. Mostly smooth delivery. No major faults. Sound arm action. Hits 90-91 early. Settles in at 87-89.

Rarely has been as good as his stuff in college or in the Cape Cod League, except for very brief stretches. He has very good size (6-foot-5, 232 pounds), has touched 94 mph and shows three good pitches at times. But they're inconsistent and he's had to dial his fastball down to the low 80s to throw more strikes.
