10/28/2017 - 2017 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures West Dawson is a very talented athlete who makes things look easy on the field - on the mound, in the field and at the plate. His highest ceiling appears to be on the mound where he attacks hitters with a solid 3-pitch mix. His delivery is balanced and simple with clean arm action a quiet head - all elements that help to contribute to his advanced command. He pitched to both sides of the plate with his fastball that lived in the upper 80s, even showing the ability to climb the ladder to get hitters to chase. Dawson also threw a very good sinking change and a quality breaking ball with 3/4 tilt that both came from the same window as his FB. He threw a high volume of strikes while striking out 5 of the 8 hitters he faced. Dawson also showed his athleticism with a quality batting practice and solid infield actions. He followed up the workout with a double in the game. Overall, this is an exciting young prospect with a bright future.
