@donnydragons MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT: Doncaster's Daniel McGrath has signed with the Boston Red Sox.
Ace pitcher set to try his arm in the US
November 27, 2011
MELBOURNE Aces manager and international scout Phil Dale believes 17-year-old Doncaster pitcher Daniel McGrath is the next on the radar to head to the US after fielding a swag of major league contracts.
The explosive young talent - who made his debut on the Aces' roster last season - is choosing between going to college in the US and signing a professional contract.
But it appears certain that he will join the more experienced Aces pitcher Shane Lindsay - who signed with the LA Dodgers last week - to head to the US at the completion of the Aces' season.
''He's [McGrath] an amateur and still in the under-18 program but he pitches for us and he's doing a really good job, better than I've seen him pitch for a long time,'' Dale said.
''I think he's had offers but he's just playing around with what options are the best for him.''
He's 6'3. Doesn't turn 18 until July 7th.
