Biographical Data
Player Name:Daniel Marrs
Position:Starting Pitcher
School:James River HS (Va.)
School Type:High school
Academic Class:Senior
Weight:200 lbs.
Report Date(s):04/10/08
Game(s):Midlothian High School

Focus Area
Fastball:Marrs threw his fastball in the 91-95 mph range.
Fastball movement:It had boring action that came in on right-handed hitters.
Curve:His breaking ball is below average. He's shown a curve/slider and a split. The split actually has the best chance, but it's not a good pitch to have high schoolers throw.
Control:He has below-average command.
Poise:He competes well on the mound.
Physical Description:Marrs has a big, strong and projectable frame.
Medical Update:A shoulder injury forced him out of action for much of the second half of last season and over the summer, but he appears healthy now.
Strengths:Arm strength is his biggest plus to go along with a strong, athletic frame.
Weaknesses:He only showed one pitch that would consistently grade out well -- the fastball -- and his command has been inconsistent, at best.
Summary:He may be a bit of a project, but he's the kind that many teams like to take on. Marrs is a big, strong, athletic and projectable high school right-hander with arm strength galore. He can get his fastball easily into the mid-90s and hasn't shown any ill effects from last year's shoulder injury. There isn't much else that's consistent besides his velocity and whoever drafts him will have to work on secondary pitches as well as his command. That kind of live arm isn't so common, so someone is likely to take a leap and try to teach Marrs the nuances of pitching.
