Just two days till baseball season - No. 2 on the baseball team, freshman Daniel Cabrera
quote:

This is a kid who is destined to make an early impact and someone Coach Mainieri thinks very highly of, as evidenced by this statement he made during Baseball Media Day: “I think you can put him in the category with the LeMahieus and the Bregmans and the Antoine Duplantis’ that were ready to play as a freshman when they arrived at LSU.”

From his Bio on LSUSports.net

Rated the No. 82 prospect in the 2017 MLB Draft by Baseball America and named the top player in Louisiana by Max Preps ... played last summer in the Cal Ripken League – a collegiate summer league – for the Gaithersburg (Md.) Giants, and he batted .339 (38-for-107) with seven doubles, three homers, 21 RBI, 22 runs and 11 stolen bases ... was voted Baseball America’s No. 2 pro prospect in the Cal Ripken League ... earned 2017 first-team all-state recognition, batting .510 on the year at Parkview Baptist High School with 25 RBI ... played his first three high school seasons at John Curtis HS in River Ridge, La., where he was named the Outstanding Player in the New Orleans Metro Area in 2015 and 2016 ... batted .393 in 2016 at John Curtis with 13 doubles, one triple, three homers, 20 RBI and 21 runs; also pitched 23 innings, recording 36 strikeouts and a 1.22 ERA.

Great post. I can't wait to see this outfield play. Just hoping the pitching can make some major strides this year.

Batted 510. Yikes, I know it’s not college, but damn!

I was actually more impressed by this:

"also pitched 23 innings, recording 36 strikeouts and a 1.22 ERA."

I had heard he could possibly be a decent pitching prospect but had never seen any actual stats.

We've had fast outfields, this is up there with the fastest of them I think.

Watson's first jump/instincts are incredible.

Jared Mitchell, Mikie Mahtook, and Leon Landry is possibly the best outfield I've ever seen at LSU. It's going to take a lot to beat them overall, especially defensively.

I didn't say up there with the best, I said up there with the fastest. Although that one was fast AF.

We've had 3 or 4 just ridiculously fast outfields.

I'll see you out there at some point again this season. Possibly making the Saturday or Sunday games. We will see!
