2009 Prospect Preview
Q&A with Zach Daeges

Released (August 2011)

Scouting Report
: Daeges has a huge lower body and a spread out stance. His swing has big extension on it and he turns on the ball pretty well, finishing up with his top hand off the bat. He's an all-around good hitter with nice line drive power from the left side of the plate. Decent bat speed, outstanding plate discipline - rarely swings at a pitch outside the zone. Picks up a lot of extra base hits due to his strong frame, but just hasn't gotten under the ball enough to hit many home runs (with the exception of his time at Lancaster in 2007). However, his plate discipline coupled with his line drive swing has consistently resulted in a high OBP. At this stage, Daeges is below-average in the field and has played a lot of DH, but has improved steadily. The organization has tried Daeges at 3B, 1B, and corner outfield, and he's seemed to have settled in right field. His range is average to below-average, and his reads and jumps are mediocre. His arm is a spot above-average. Underwent TJ surgery in 2004. Missed most of the 2009 season with a severe ankle injury and all of 2010 with a shoulder injury.
