I highly doubt they are showcasing Danks. He had a wrist injury during the latter half of the season and missed a significant amount of games. This is him getting some work in.
Defensively he could play in the bigs right now. His bat likely needs some work. Most scouts/reports have him projected as a solid regular but not a star. He hasn't shown the power that he was projected to have and many think it won't come. They see him as a solid defender who will hit for average, walk some, and steal some bases. He isn't going to be an ideal leadoff type unless he cuts down on the K's though.
Ryan Sweeney is a comp I've seen thrown around alot.
