Danny Muegge Report

Danny Muegge, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers
Drafetd 576th Overall (19th Rd), 2003 Draft, Texas
Bats L/Throws R
23 YO, 6'5", 175 lbs

Muegge was another cog in the big Sean Green/Randy Johnson deal. He's a command and control righty who needs to develop an out pitch. He spent 2004 in South Bend, sporting a 3.12 ERA with 104 K's, and 42 walks in 153 innings. He doesn't strike out enough hitters, even though he shows great control. He gave up just under a hit per inning, and just over a home run every 9 innings. He's hittable, even for Midwest League hitters, who are likely 2 years younger than he is. It doesn't bode well for his long term prognosis. If he can develop an out pitch, say a killer change or a 12-6 curve, he might end up clawing his way into the majors. As it stands, he's a fairly typical low ceiling, polished college arm who will gradually be less effective at each minor league rung of the ladder unless he develops quickly.
