Braves Add Outfielder Mike Daniel To Myrtle Beach Roster

Attempting to fix some of the offensive issues that have plagued the Myrtle Beach Pelicans this season, as well as plug a hole in center field, the Braves have signed Minor League free agent Mike Daniel. The 25 year old Daniel, once considered one of the more promising hitters in the Washington organization, was released by the Nationals on Tuesday.

Daniel has struggled the last few years; spending most of last season with AA Harrisburg, as well as 11 games with AAA Syracuse, he hit just .253 with a .692 OPS, along with 7 home runs, 44 RBI, and a career high 7 triples. This season, in 19 games for Harrisburg, he hit just .182 with a lowly .499 OPS. Daniel, who attended UNC, had his best season in 2007, when he hit .294 with a .820 OPS to go with 35 doubles, 11 home runs, 78 RBI, and 25 stolen bases.

In that 07 season he had his lone experience in the Carolina League, the league that Myrtle Beach plays in, hitting .296 with a.807 OPS and hit 20 doubles and 4 home runs, drvoe in 41 RBI, stole 16 bases in 71 games for Potomac. So, while he may no longer be the promising prospect he was several seasons ago, he should certainly be able to bolster the Pelicans lineup.
