As I stated earlier with my Phillies' choice of Eldemire, I rarely step away from the stat base of the 'Under the Radar Feature' criteria and choose a kid that I simply have a gut feeling about. Nevertheless, going by gut instinct occasionally garners the best result. Dailey is another one of those players. Listed at 5’10" and 170 lbs, Dailey is a born leader on the field with speed on the base paths and aggressiveness at the plate. Scouts consider the right-handed hitter an above-average athlete with a collection of skills unmatched in the system from a 19 yr old. He is a superior defender with soft hands and a strong arm. Drafted in the 34th Round in 2010, the Reds hope that their small investment can reap huge awards.
