Sean Danielson is the starting left fielder and leadoff man for the Springfield Cardinals. Undrafted out of the University of Texas at San Antonio. Very diminutive, he stands only 5’8, and underrated.
Danielson’s first pro action came with the New York-Penn League’s New Jersey Cardinals, where he hit .344 with 19 steals and was named an All-Star. After the season, he was named New Jersey’s MVP and Rookie of the Year. In 2006 he hit only .249 at Palm Beach. 2007 saw him start the season back at Palm Beach, hitting .355 in 12 games before being promoted. In 77 games with Springfield, Danielson is hitting .289/.358/.391 and was named a Texas League All-Star. He is very good defensively, having also spent time in center relieving Colby Rasmus at times. Also, he has a cannon in the outfield as he is second on the Cardinals in outfield assists. I see Danielson projecting as a fourth/fifth outfielder type, providing good defense and speed off the bench.
Kary Booher wrote a really good article about him earlier in the season.
