Danny Black was drafted in 2009 by the Yankees, in the 42nd round, while he was playing for Feather River (Calif.) JC. He declined, and would transfer to Oklahoma.

In 2010 he had a great season with Oklahoma, hitting .320/.370/.505 with 5 HR. He would be drafted again, this time by the Marlins, in the 14th round. This time he would sign.

After 2012 he would be rated on the the Marlins Top 30 prospects. Hr projected as an average hitter in the majors, though with no power. But he would have the defensive flexibility to play second, third or short. In short, a great NL utility player.

He was an All-Star in both 2011 and 2012, and was a post-season All-Star in 2012.

But in 2013 he got his first taste of AA, and struggled. He would make it to AAA in 2014, but his bat just was not good enough to stick. His last season was 2015, playing a AA Jacksonville, where he would hit .247/341/.325 in 77 at bats.

In his college career he got to play in the College World Series, and was drafted by two different pro-organizations. So that is pretty cool.

An Interview with him from 2009. Favorite player? Omar!
