Jordan Danks making a strong impression on the AFL

Sox outfielder Jordan Danks is making a strong impression on the scouts down here. Sox minor-league director Buddy Bell told me that Danks already is the best defensive outfielder in the organization.


Baseball America rates the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Danks as the best athlete in the Sox’s system and its top defensive outfielder. Scouting reports play up his range and arm, and he has shown off both in all three outfield positions in Arizona.

Jordan usually bats second in the AFL, though he batted lead-off with the Barons:

“I’m not a typical leadoff hitter. The whole Southern League knew I was a first-pitch swinger. I led off every game and swung at a lot of first-pitch changeups. I’ve asked a lot of coaches about swinging at the first pitch, and they say if it’s there, go for it.”
